Stephen Inglis
Principal Structural Engineer
ADL

With over 30 years in the consulting business, Stephen has gained a solid reputation for his knowledge and expertise in the field of Structural Engineering. His primary interest in steelwork design has driven his desire to work on a diverse range of projects including multi-level commercial, retail, educational, institutional, industrial and residential projects.

Recognised for his prompt and reliable service, Stephen enjoys being involved throughout the lifecycle of his projects to achieve outstanding results. Stephen works collaboratively with his clients, applying his broad project management skills and in-depth understanding of stakeholder requirements to each of the design, documentation and construction stages.

Stephen recognises the Burnside Shopping Centre Stage 3 as one of the pivotal projects that he has been involved in. The use of steel was prevalent for the superstructure and featured a curved glass roof over the shopping mall. This scope gave Stephen the opportunity to challenge his thinking and provide an innovative approach in the balancing aspects of the structural framing layouts. Coupled with the operational complexities of working in a new building next to a functioning shopping centre, Stephen identifies this project as a highlight of his career. Similarly, the UniSA MIAM project at Mawson Lakes also featured a dominant steelwork structure. The long cantilever trusses extending out over a wetland area also required an innovative approach. Stephen’s hands-on experience in major projects such as these have fostered his specialised capability in large-scale project management.

Although a relative short period of time, Stephen’s three week secondment in the late 1990s to SMEC at their Hong Kong office has proved to be an important foundation in giving him a greater understanding of the necessity to being adaptive to the availability of materials and diverse standards and regulations.
