Our Philosophy

Responsive – we seek to anticipate our client’s needs. Reliable – we do what we say we will do. Results – we are proud and passionate to deliver beyond our clients expectations.

We are the masters of our craft. We are learned, we are skilled, we are diligent and we are capable of great things. We are McDowall Affleck.

We work efficiently and pragmatically so that you reap the rewards. Welcome to the home of practical design engineers that you can set your watch to. We want the best for you, but we also want the best for everyone else, so we make ethical decisions and ethical designs.

We know that work is not everything, so just as often as we’re burning the midnight oil, we’re heading off early to see our kids. We get the balance right so that we’re smiling morning and night. We want to talk to you about your next engineering project, almost as much as we want to talk about your golf game on Sunday and we really hope we get the chance to. Your personable project manager is only ever a phone call away.

We celebrate the fact that we’re all in this together, so being involved in our community is part of our ethos. Planting trees, sponsoring local sporting clubs, supporting community events, raising funds for quarterly charities like Movember, Perth has been generous enough to host our business since 1978, so we give back any way we can.

In August, McDowall Affleck merged with Deacon Engineers, who will now be known as MA Deacon Engineers, a division of McDowall Affleck.

Merging with MA Deacon Engineers, expands both the capacity and the capability of our combined civil, structural and mechanical engineering teams to engineer even more outstanding design solutions for our clients.
