The success of any project or company depends on a great team.


The Company

David McKay Consulting was established by David McKay in 2017, drawing on over 25 years’ major project experience in Australia with Sinclair Knight Merz, Evans & Peck, ConnellGriffin and InfraSol Group, and internationally with Sinclair Knight Merz and WS Atkins.

David McKay Consulting has worked with and along side many ‘giants’ within the engineering community, and is able to draw upon this experience in delivering exceptional service and value to its clients.

We pride ourselves on going ‘above and beyond’ in the service of our clients, ensuring that project teams are ‘doing the right things and doing things right’.
