PROFILE – Brian Mayer


Brian Mayer BE (Hons), MIEAust, NPER, RPEQ

Partner and Structural Manager

STP Consultants partner and structural manager Brian Mayer has always been technically minded, so the decision to study a Bachelor of Civil Engineering at University of Queensland came naturally.

Graduating in 1999 with Second Class A Honours, Brian has gone on to work in various fields of the construction industry, gaining a broad knowledge in consulting structural engineering and related fields both in Australia and overseas.

Brian joined STP Consultants in 2005 and has been a valuable asset to the team with his knowledge of structural design of concrete, steel, timber and masonry for residential, commercial and industrial structures.

In his current role, his responsibilities include coordinating with clients, ensuring work is completed on time and on budget and ensuring any problems are addressed in a timely manner. Among his career highlights he lists Cossham Hospital near Portsmith – a three billion pound project, the Karratha airport redevelopment and Oxygen Apartments Brisbane, which involved the construction of three different towers.


Brian finds his work very interesting and rewarding, especially seeing the project come to fruition. His job also allows him the opportunity to work with a wide variety of different professions, including architects, builders and other consultants.


Challenges include dealing with last-minute changes and working with architects to develop a workable structure that complies with the architectural aesthetic of the building.
