About Strata Group

Strata Group Consulting Engineers was established in 2008 and is a 100% Kiwi-owned, multi-disciplinary, professional engineering consultancy with a strong civil and structural engineering track record.

Three of the current directors studied engineering together and each has over 30 years’ experience. Guy Lethbridge and Russell Nettlingham, based in Hawke’s Bay, merged their original companies to form Strata Group Consulting Engineers and have since added Duncan Bruce as a director. In 2012, Strata Group merged with Callum Wood’s Christchurch-based Civil Engineering Consultancy.

Today, Strata Group employs 25 staff across New Zealand. Our team of engineers, engineering technicians and project managers bring a wealth of experience gained internationally and from from an array of consulting projects throughout New Zealand.

With offices in Hawke's Bay, Christchurch, Queenstown and Whangarei, we deliver engineering design solution to companies all over New Zealand.
