Aaron Kaijser
Aaron Kaijser
Senior Structural Engineer

Aaron joined the team in 2015 after completing a two-year Master’s degree at the highly regarded Technical University of Delft, in the Netherlands. In partnership with the Dutch multinational firm, Delta Marine Consultants, he completed a thesis project focusing on the seismic performance of LNG jetties in Indonesia.

Prior to his Dutch stint, Aaron spent time as a bridge and piling engineer for Fletcher Construction in Auckland, gaining valuable first-hand construction experience. This followed on from undergraduate studies at the University of Canterbury, culminating in 2010.

Since joining Structex, Aaron has worked on the full spectrum of new builds as well as the earthquake assessment and strengthening work of existing buildings. His enthusiasm and communication aptitude have helped him develop a strong rapport with all he works with. More recently, Aaron has relocated back to his home region, Hawkes Bay, to better service the area.

Outside of the office Aaron is a keen surfer and sportsman with an eye for the next travel destination. Never far from the ocean, Napier provides the perfect base for Aaron, his wife, Karla and their energetic Springer Spaniel, Taz.
