Who we are

The Practice was established in 1996 on Auckland’s North Shore and has experienced steady and sustainable growth ever since.

Established by Mark and Cheryl Smith, the Practice began as a sole practitioner, home-based business, with purpose-built offices in the East Coast Bays. The Practice is still on Auckland's North Shore, based in Rosedale, and carries out Structural and Civil Engineering consulting work in the wider Auckland Region, across New Zealand and further afield in the Pacific.

Under the leadership of Chris Steven and Glen Cossey, Markplan continues to deliver a high quality, practical and awesome service to our long standing and always valued client base. 

Markplan Consulting is a service driven team of positive, enthusiastic, thinking engineers who share a love of structures and what we do.

We operate within, and exceed, the Engineering New Zealand Code of Ethics and our own internal Code of Conduct. As individuals and as a team, we have committed ourselves to meet our goal to be the best Structural Engineering Consultancy in NZ.

This is achieved by continually improving our knowledge, both professionally and personally. We never walk past a standard, always strive to be the best that we can be and whatever action or activity we undertake, make sure that it moves us towards that goal.

We are a Consultancy committed to providing you with the highest quality structural engineering service, both technically and financially, to specifically meet your individual needs. 

Our clients are the people who are “building New Zealand”, developing infrastructure, commerce and their own homes.

They encompass individuals with innovative ideas, Development and Construction companies, Architects and Architectural Designers, District and City Councils, material and product suppliers and manufacturers. Our clients come from all over New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and Australia. 

It is our belief that you shouldn’t have to be an engineer to deal with one.

We aim to make your experience with Markplan Consulting as easy as possible. This is important to our clients because they operate within a heavily regulated environment. Markplan is a long-established, well-respected Practice - we are experts in our field and knowledgeable about our service and industry. We take pride in being able to offer you hassle-free, timely, practical solutions for your structural and civil engineering needs.
