Engineering & Design

This is the heartbeat of our business.

Our objective is to offer innovative-engineered solutions, providing both safety and cost savings for our clients. This is why our engineering and design teams work closely with our clients before the project’s inception.

By using practical solutions, supported by safe and economical design in line with Australian Standards, codes of practice and the relevant regulations, we can tailor a cost-effective solution for your project. Whether your project requirement is formwork, scaffolding or screen related, our diverse product range offers superior quality backed by renowned technical support and engineering expertise.

Our professional in-house engineering team, including Chartered Engineers, are suitably qualified and highly experienced with an exceptional reputation in the formwork, falsework, shoring, scaffolding and screen industry.

Complementing this experience is the team’s thorough knowledge of the relevant regulatory requirements, codes of practice and Australian Standards, which enable us to advise our clients on design and compliance demands for their project needs.

We offer practical, economical, safe, compliant and innovative-engineered solutions.

Our team takes “thinking out the box” to a new level.

Our engineering team is not bound by limitations of just proprietary systems. We design, engineer & procure custom fabricated steel solutions to suit any project requirement. The vast experience our team has in all sectors has enabled us to design a large range of complex geometric formwork elements in some of the most challenging locations.

We use the latest technology & software and have the capabilities to 3D design, rapid prototype and visualise a project before anything leaves the yard. This ensures any problems are realised early & solutions are established before the project build commences. The prototype does not just showcase it’s intended application but can also determine the systems install & dismantle process, ensuring safety & efficiencies.

The Engineering team have the tools to print a designed solution as a 3D model (true to scale), as well as being able to provide a 3D animation of this solution. This can assist a client when demonstrating a project stage and can also form part of your work method statements and toolbox briefs.

The Engineering and Design division of our business is ISO 9001:205 accredited. This framework guides our processes and procedures in selecting and managing our suppliers and manufacturers.

From design to production to delivery, not a step is missed in the quality control process, ensuring compliance with our requirements.

Stringent quality control measures are part of our everyday business, allowing us to offer our clients reliable products that meet standards and exceed our clients’ expectations.


Our technical capabilities provide a value added service in the form of 3D animation, which can assist in presenting technical solutions to your client in a very unique way. This animation can also serve as a training platform in Pre-starts and Toolbox sessions when discussing Scope of Works, Safe Work Method Statements and Risk Assessments. These animations can be viewed in video format or the 3D model can be placed into a virtual reality space for a immersive and realistic representation of what is being proposed.

Acrow’s blog platform has been created to share engineering facts, general topics and lessons learned throughout our business, only to enhance the delivery of our solutions.
