The core of our culture is to challenge and question the norm while keeping a strong focus on the end user. A “less is more” approach coupled with a strong respect for first principles engineering is our focus and strength.
Our Core Values
- Team Commitment
We believe great outcomes are achievable by establishing clear values and goals in everything we do personally, professionally and for our clients. Bringing the right skills and focus into the mix is our number one priority. Team members who are open to exploring their own passions and self-development while also opening their receptivity to learning outside of their speciality is the glue and accelerant to igniting innovation and positive change.
We seek balance in all we do. Yoga, meditation, exercise, healthy diet, healthy thinking, interaction with nature. These are just a few key recipes for a great life. To inspire a positive way of life for the places we live we must practice what we preach.
Education & Innovation
We believe innovative, great outcomes are well within our grasp when education and perspectives are shared. This is the guiding principle in all that we do personally and professionally. Knowledge is indeed power. We can all change the world if we teach each other and continue to learn.
We use great tools such as Flock, Bluebeam, Sefaira, Revit, Energy Plus, Sketch Up all in an effort to optimize our communication strength. We document and present well as we believe they are key communication tools for ideal outcomes.
Our Team Leader’s Journey
September of 2004: Jeff Froster left his cushy job, a 1993 Sports Red Ford Probe (Poor Man’s BMW), his friends and family, and a stable lifestyle in Michigan to explore New Zealand on a working holiday. He left with $2k to his name. On this journey, he was opened to the world outside of the United States. “My education and life experience on this continuing adventure keeps me inspired”.
Taking measured risks for some is simply pursuing opportunities for others. When we take ourselves out of our comfort zone we grow and opportunities abound. This guiding principal drives Jeff’s vision for the future of the built environment and our mission for Froster Engineering.
Jeff is a proud father of two beautiful girls (Clara – 5, Ella – 8). Their future is OUR future. Jeff holds professional engineering licenses in both the United States (PE) and Australia (CPEng). Jeff is the Founder of the Business of Buildings (BOB) Network & Podcast. Jeff is the Founder of the University of Michigan Alumni Club Australia. When you see him be sure to greet him properly, i.e “Go Blue!!”.
