Consulting engineering companies with diverse capabilities are in great
demand in the heavy construction industry as current and potential clients look
for more ways to increase efficiencies and lower costs.
With their diverse engineering capabilities, consulting companies such
as Soto Consulting Engineers are able to fill the void left by top tier
consulting companies that don’t have the bandwidth for comprehensive cross
Managing Director Mr Frank Soto explains that it is a natural
progression for the company to expand from its eastern seaboard stronghold and
increase involvement throughout the rest of Australia and overseas. Backed by experienced
personnel and various powerful software systems, Soto Group is on an expansion
path, ‘cross selling’ their capabilities to existing clients.
With their software, hardware and skilled workforce, Soto Group maintains
its lead over larger consulting companies that may not have these niches
covered so well, especially with advanced analysis, which is not easily
For example, a construction project might have a longstanding
association with Soto Group for their audit capability; however, during an
audit it is very likely to require a number of associated services such as
report and mediation work, or detailed engineering and documentation control as
part of a capex submission, which Soto is equipped to fulfil.
Construction clients are able to see the multiple benefits of using a
single efficient source, including the streamlining of job processes and costs
in addition to smoother technical communications between different specialists.
Mr Soto describes it as a genuine value proposition to be able to increase
the range of services offered to one client for tailored solutions.
Having delivered an extensive range of engineering services to clients
within multiple industries, Soto’s expert and highly skilled multidisciplinary
team provides a collaborative and integrated service, from consulting through
to design, analysis and project completion. Soto Group focuses on optimised,
timely and cost effective engineering solutions tailored to meet specific
requirements as well as relevant engineering standards.
