Key Personnel

Ian Meachem

Managing Director

Ian founded Timber Insight in 2013 after seeing a need in the market for a business to provide services in the most sustainable of construction methods – timber. Timber Insight provided end to end services in the timber assessment, engineering design and construction of timber assets and buildings until 2016 when the consulting and commercial construction arms were separated in Engenuity Engineering and Constructive PD (CPD).
Timber Insight has continued to grow focused on timber asset inspection, maintenance, and construction whilst Engenuity and CPD have gone from strength to strength in consulting engineering and construction. The group of companies now employs more than 110 full time staff across Perth and the Southwest.
Ian is a passionate advocate for sustainable construction systems and maintains a strong focus on this across the group. As Managing Director Ian’s focus is on managing Timber Insight’s sustainable growth and strategic direction as well as ensuring a high level of service to our valued clients.
