Scott Menegon
Innovation & Technical Development Manager

Scott is a structural engineer with a combined 15 years of experience in both consulting and structural engineering research and academia. Scott’s areas of expertise include earthquake engineering, structural dynamics, non-linear analysis and the design and documentation of reinforced concrete, structural steel and timber buildings. He is a Chartered Professional Engineer (structural) and has experience designing buildings in the health, government, education, transport and residential sectors. Scott also has experience in the design of temporary structures, which includes being the lead designer on a project that received a high commendation from the Australian Steel Institute in 2016.

Scott maintains active research ties to Swinburne University of Technology and the University of Melbourne. His primary research interests include reinforced concrete, precast concrete, earthquake engineering and collision actions. Scott has undertaken several large-scale testing programs of RC walls, columns, core walls and associated connections, which have provided him with unique insights into the lateral load behaviour of multi-storey RC buildings, particularly under seismic actions. Scott is a member of the seismic sub-committee for AS 3600 and his research contributions to seismic design in Australia were recently recognised through being awarded the 2019 RW Chapman Medal from Engineers Australia. He has authored/co-authored more than 50 peer-reviewed published works, including book chapters, journal articles, conference papers, code commentaries and a textbook titled Collision Actions on Structures.
