About Us

Established in 2006 and named after the Maori god of earthquakes, Ruamoko Solutions specialises in delivering structural design solutions to mitigate the devastation to buildings that can occur as a result of major earthquakes, as well as providing a quality structural engineering service for mainstream projects.

At Ruamoko Solutions, we take structure seriously. It is our passion, and our specialty. Our specialised interest in earthquake engineering and strong ties to cutting-edge research has placed us in a prominent position following the recent Canterbury Earthquakes. We have led the way in pioneering seismic design for the Christchurch rebuild including the first post-earthquake use of base-isolation, PRESSS and other damage avoidance technology, such as NZ's first bolted-link EBF seismic frames.

We understand the team environment and enjoy working as part of a team with architects, owners, developers, consultants and contractors to develop the best all-round solutions for building projects.
