Gabriela Tufare

ENGINEER

Structural engineer and qualified architect, with more than 14 years' experience in New Zealand and Spain. I have experience of designing concrete, steel and timber structures ranging from office and residential buildings, sporting facilities, hotels, hospitals and schools to theatres and museums.

I studied architecture at University but realised my passion lay in the structural design of projects. This background has given me an understanding of both perspectives and means I find ways of delivering structures that complement and enhance the architect’s vision. You can expect me to adopt a problem-solving approach to your project.

Every development brings new challenges and I enjoy working with the wider project team to identify the best solution.

Work highlights have included:
  • Working on some of the 2008 Zaragoza Expo projects, which were architecturally challenging buildings.
  • Conducting seismic analysis and construction monitoring on the IBIS hotel in Auckland.
  • Seismic analysis of Massey University Student Residential Buildings and seismic and wind sensibility analysis for a 18 storey building in Auckland CBD.
Interests:

I enjoy socialising, reading, outdoor sports and yoga.
