College of investigative and remedial consulting engineers of australia
The College of Investigative and Remedial Consulting Engineers of Australia, CIRCEA, was founded in 1986 by a group of specialist members of the Association of Consulting Engineers Australia (ACEA). However, there is no direct affiliation between CIRCEA and ACEA.
The founding members identified the need for a professional body which could provide education and cross-referral for engineers involved in investigative, remedial and forensic matters in all disciplines of engineering.
CIRCEA provides guidance to educational institutions, government agencies, based on the experience of its members, gained by analysing engineering failures and technical input for public failures and safety inquiries.
CIRCEA became an Incorporated Association under the NSW Associations Act in January 1990.
Members are experienced in forensic engineering and risk management. Investigative and Remedial consultancy services provided by CIRCEA members cover all facets of engineering from foundation failures to electronic disturbances related to electromagnetic interference and compatibility within today's technological environment.
CIRCEA members are senior engineering practitioners, having considerable experience in their respective fields of expertise. As professional engineers, members will liaise with their clients to establish the scope of services required and thereafter provide the services contracted to the completion of the project or matter as applicable.
