Meet The Team
Stark Engineering Consulting is foremost a team of like-minded people. Our company's performance comes from our people, and we are strong believers in rewarding excellence. When Peter Stark founded the company in 2011, he did this with two key 'people' values in mind:
Building a capable team- In building our team we place high importance on the experience people have in making their own ideas work. For our engineers, this means understanding the value of commissioning and site experience. We understand that working closely with construction and operation personnel makes for better engineers.
Valuing the people we work with- Sharing our success with the team is ingrained in our company vision. It provides a drive for excellence. We also value our people's input, which has for example led to our regular innovation days that aim to develop and implement our own technology and develop our expertise.
Our skills cover a wide range of disciplines, and resourcing a project with the best people available is a given. We invite you to have a look at our team's short stories below or contact us to meet the team.
