Staff Testimonials

Nathan Pearson, Senior Civil Engineer

You work out the culture pretty quickly – do a high quality job and provide high-level customer service. We all work as a team to meet these goals.

It’s a great environment for your career development – you can learn as much as you want.

Jarrod Gullis, Structural Engineer

It is important to be surrounded by as much experience as possible. At Westera Partners I am lucky to have just that, with some of the most well-informed mentors at my disposal allowing my development to be accelerated.

Kieran Swan, Civil Engineer

I work closely with our designers and drafters to produce a design that is not only compliant, but considers cost and constructability. It is rewarding to be part of a team that works hard and strives to service our clients’ needs and deadlines.

Jared Hill, Senior Civil Engineer, Partner

When I first started as a young engineer I found the approach the engineers at Westera Partners took refreshing and admired the attention to detail and pride in the quality of work that left the office. I experienced fantastic mentoring and achieved my chartered status within five years of starting with Westera Partners and have since moved into a senior role where I now have the ability to return the favour and work with younger civil engineers at the firm.
