Our Services

move to next

System Solutions Engineering (SSE) is a locally owned and run engineering firm located in the City of Adelaide. The company was formed in 1997 by Brad Maynard with the aim of providing a complete range of services including design, investigative reporting, trouble-shooting and multi-discipline project management. Combined with the resources of allied specialist engineering practices in a professional consortium, SSE can formulate the most appropriate team for projects of any size. We manage and coordinate each project to ensure our clients have a single point of contact, which is often expected to ensure effective communication and dissemination of information.

This represents the most cost and technically efficient method for the provision of consulting services without large practice overheads. Given the nature of our approach, our resources are virtually limitless and our depth of experience unbounded as for traditional practices. Our key engineers have a broad knowledge in all aspects and disciplines of project management, providing high quality solutions that are in line with the latest technology.
