Tahira Consultants is an independent practice of mechanical, renewable energy and electrical engineers, specializing in sustainability. Our mechanical & electrical engineers, sustainability consultants, and energy assessors create complete building services solutions

SUSTAINABILITY

We are committed to buildings services that preserve and - whenever possible - improve the environment. Our team will ensure that overall targets and legal requirements for carbon emissions are not only met but exceeded wherever possible. We tackle everything from small works for maintenance and modernization valued under 10k, to major new build, refurbishment, asset maintenance and nationwide programmes up to large scale development. We work mainly in Fiji, PNG and South Pacific. We are independent and wholly owned by our directors who all actively take part in our projects.

HOW WE DO THINGS

We’re really proud of not only what we do, but the way that we do it. We care about your project because when you engage us it’s our project too. We will closely examine everything: budget, schedule, operational and environmental factors, ease of maintenance, lifetime costs and so on, and we’ll listen carefully to understand precisely what it is your project needs to achieve.

DO IT AGAIN

80% of our turnover is repeat business. If we weren’t listening to our clients giving them great value for money, attentive service and high quality design they’d go somewhere else. In case you’re wondering about the other 20%, they are new clients or one-off projects. 

HEALTH & SAFETY

Health and safety is top priority, and not just throughout the design and installation, but also throughout the life of the building.
