Services Provided

Index Engineering covers a broad range of mechanical engineering services, with speciality areas of pressure equipment, boilers, piping and cranes. We address health and safety concerns through seismic design and guarding audits, and fitness for service assessments. We welcome unusual problems or the opportunity to develop your innovative idea.

Project Management

We provide onsite project management in the Bay of Plenty and Waikato, particularly for our key clients in the pulp and paper, energy, wood processing and food/drink industries.

We have dedicated and experienced project managers who have a can-do attitude and are not afraid to get their hands dirty. Clients are assisted from initial job scoping, through design, design verification or review, installation and then plant commissioning. We go the extra mile to ensure that we see jobs right through to the end.
Our extensive knowledge of the pulp and paper sector means that there is nothing much we haven’t dealt with before.


Our engineering and design team can address conceptual design right through to detail design engineering.

We really listen to our clients, so that the engineering designs we create meet our client’s expectations in regard to practicality, cost-saving, innovation, safety and presentation.

Plant and equipment can be digitally scanned and our designers use Solidworks animation when needed, to illustrate a flow or action. They can even create models through 3D printing.

We are able to design verify our designs in-house.

Design Verification

Index Engineering Ltd has been recognised as a Type B inspection body under Regulation 25 of the Health and Safety in Employment (Pressure Equipment, Cranes and Passenger Ropeways) Regulations since 2010.

We are accredited to design verify pressure vessels and piping from hazard levels A-E, boilers, and cranes.

We maintain an ISO AS/NZS 17020 quality management system.

Design Review

We help clients across New Zealand with design reviews, including seismic and fatigue analysis, finite element analysis, fitness for service assessments and remaining life studies.
We ask the right questions and then investigate and present the information in concise reports or producer statements.

Index’s team of chartered professional engineers have years of experience in New Zealand and overseas, providing clients with confidence that they are receiving the best possible expert advice.
We have certified over 80 monorails and often deal with boilers and heat exchangers.

In design verification, checks are made to ensure that the design is safe and code complaint, that the correct materials are specified, that the designer has not made unsupportable assumptions or applied incorrect logic and that arithmetic errors have been identified and corrected.

Our team of five design verifiers and our well-developed systems give our clients a great deal of confidence in our ability to provide an expert service.

We have produced two checklists to assist you in putting together the required information for design verification.
