Our Foundations


Alex Milanovic & Associates began offering structural engineering consultancy in 1995, working with clients of all sizes, from domestic renovators to developers, governments, and large national corporations.

In 2006, Terrane Engineering was established with an initial focus on stormwater management and land development. In response to clients’ needs, the company expanded to support projects ranging from small subdivisions to multi-million dollar construction projects.

The two companies merged in 2012 and re-branded in 2014, when the new trading name ‘Milanovic Neale Consulting Engineers’ was launched.

Milanovic Neale Consulting Engineers now works with a wide variety of clients, providing a greater range of services and sharing the value of the new business model with every project.

With these strong foundations, Milanovic Neale Consulting Engineers provides integrated structural, civil and traffic engineering design solutions incorporating project management from concept through to completion.
