Who We Are

Andrea Doncaster Engineering Limited is an Engineering firm, based in Nova Scotia specializing in structural consulting for residential applications.  We are licensed to practice in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Ontario.
The firm's primary focus is residential consulting, ranging from small renovations to large, high end cottages and homes.  Our clients include homeowners, contractors, architects and designers.
We have worked on hundreds of projects, including several that have been recipients of Lieutenant Governors Awards for Architecture. We have also been awarded the Lumber Bureau Engineer in 2016 and 2019.



When it comes to home construction, I believe a collaborative approach to design yields the best results for the client. Bringing the Architect, Engineer and Builder all together early on in project helps avoid problems and conflicts and allows for coordinated and innovative design.

If you have a small project such as removing a load bearing wall, or need a review of minor problems in an existing structure, please contact me to discuss your project further.

If you are looking to do a major renovation, addition or new construction, I suggest you find an Architect and/or Builder who you would like to work with first, and I would be happy to join the team as Structural Consultant.

Listed below are the Residential Engineering services offered:

· Structural Review
· Foundation Review
· Engineering Design for New Construction
· Engineering Design for Renovations
· Engineering Design for Home Additions
