Senior Engineer – Nicola Austel
Nicola Austel holds a Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) from the University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden. Specialising in structural and civil engineering, she worked for a number of leading engineering firms in her native Germany before moving to Adelaide in 2007 and joining Magryn & Associates.
After a short sabbatical in early 2015 to pursue other interests, she returned to the company a year later as a senior engineer responsible for the design, documentation and drafting of a wide variety of projects.
These include the structural design of residential and commercial buildings, as well as large tensile shade structures for the recreational, commercial, local government and educational sectors.
In addition, Nicola is intimately involved in the design of coastal structures – such as boat ramps, channel beacons and breakwaters – and stormwater infrastructure and has extensive experience in the preparation of footings for new houses and house extensions.
