Meet The People At Mitchell Vranjes

Holistic advice that goes beyond structural engineering.

Engineering incorporates both art and science. A truly great Engineer is someone who can move beyond the theory and understand how ideas will work in real life. That’s what we look for in new recruits, and what we expect from our team.

That practicality has underpinned our work since we opened our doors in 1992. Since then, we’ve been delivering successful structural engineering consultancy projects, some with budgets in excess of $80m.

Our flat hierarchy offers our people at every level the chance to make their mark on projects. It’s part of why we’ve grown our business from referrals and repeat business, and why some of our clients have been working with us for more than 30 years.

Melanesian Mission

Comprehensive drawings, better outcomes.

We’re known for the quality and detail in our drawings, none of which are outsourced overseas to be drawn. This, plus our expertise in Base Isolation makes us the go-to firm for sensitive restoration work.

same purpose

The MV Way

‘Creating and delivering a superior client and staff experience. Being innovative yet practical, and always personable.’

Our Values



Staff who value each other’s differences, can communicate simply and form strong relationships with clients. Ensure we work cohesively and collaboratively as a team inclusive of staff, client, architect and builder.

Practical Tools


We make the complex simple. We move beyond the theory and understand how ideas will work in real life.

Nimble Lightbulb


Able to change direction with our designs quickly and efficiently. Industry leading drawings and well thought through designs. Plenty of energy and fresh thinking.



We value our clients’ feedback. We are proud of our relationships, repeat business, our results and successes and thrive on referrals.



We believe in recognition. Not only financially but emotionally and socially. That staff should be included in decision making, mentored and supported to achieve their career goals.



Create a work environment where people feel they belong. Where they can have fun, build friendships, care for and support each other. A place that prioritises family and where trust is valued.
