RICH HISTORY BLENDED WITH INNOVATION AND DRIVE

Sparks+Partners Consulting Engineers specialises in hydraulic, storm water, civil and environmental engineering, wet and dry fire services and Revit/BIM design. The company was formed in 2014 through a merger between industry-renowned G. J. Sparks & Partners, established in 1989, and ambitious River Consulting Engineers. The dynamic Sparks+Partners brings together a seasoned practice in quality engineering, and a new generation of innovation, technology and drive. Supporting this core expertise is a suite of current technology, including next-generation design applications. Our tools, technologies and know-how grow in sophistication every day.
