Eleanor Drake

I am a structural engineer (holding an architectural degree) with experience and expertise in educational, residential, commercial and health projects. Having both skills and experience as an architect and engineer, I have a great knowledge of the property industry and the ability to collaborate with architectural teams effectively on large projects. I am passionate about client management and have an interest in business development. I am a member of the PCA Residential Development Committee in South Australia, and a lecturer for the Architectural Engineering course at The University of Adelaide. Notable projects I have been involved in at Aurecon include the University of South Australia’s Pridham Hall, Adelaide SKYCITY Casino and the Southern Response Christchurch Earthquake Recovery Project. My goal is ensure the client’s vision is brought to life through successful collaboration from the concept stage through to project completion.
