Lan's 3D revit

Lan – Draftsperson

Time is flying so fast. Everything seems to happen yesterday, but actually I have been here for two years.  I came to Auckland in September 2017, and I joined Structus in November.  This is my first job in New Zealand, starting my new career as a structural drafter.

I am lucky because Structus is really a great team working together.  Doing the work, I have learned a lot from every team member.  I know that as long as I ask for help, I will always get more than what I want.

It is an exciting job as I have the opportunity to learn new structural design ideas which are quite different from what I could do as an engineer in China.  I have gained a lot knowledge about precast concrete, timber structures and member connection ideas.

It’s really interesting to learn to use Revit, and now I have confidence with my 2D skills in Revit. I understand that 3D model set-up is a big challenge, but it does not take long to overcome.  I’m thankful to my drafting colleagues for assisting me with developing my Revit skills.

My feelings of working at Structus. Four words:  Lucky, exciting, happy and thankful.Lan's 3D revit

Structus Bet on Blue

Structus Bet on Blue

Structus recently attended the Bet on Blue Charity Casino Night, in support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation, with a few of our clients. This is an annual event organised by Metal Concepts with a V8 Supercar Simulator, Golf Simulator and Blackjack, Roulette and Poker Tables, as well as silent auctions and a raffle, all for a great cause. This was a great opportunity to catch up with some clients, as well as other peers in the industry, while doing our bit to raise awareness and support a great cause.

A good night was had by all. Thanks to Metal Concepts and the Prostate Cancer Foundation for organising such an esteemed event and for inviting us to come along and support.


Turoa Ski field

Snow weekend

A few of the team from Structus, Bluewater and GCL headed down to Ohakune for some snowy fun recently on our annual trip.

We had a great weekend with some of the team skiing and boarding, while others enjoyed a relaxing weekend in the snow. The après ski was enjoyed by all and we ventured out to experience the night life of Ohakune and had a great meal at The Cypress Tree.

An eventful trip with plenty of spills and thrills.

We look forward to next year’s trip!
