About Us

The engineering industry has changed. Gone are the days of discipline silos, generous margins, and a singular focus on construction. Excellent project delivery requires fresh thinking, and a willingness to adopt new approaches.

After each spending over a decade in engineering, James Doherty and Keith Peters know this challenge all too well. Sharing a commitment to finding new and better ways to solve problems, they founded Axia Engineering. Axia is based on a new paradigm of engineering, built on the three pillars of value, innovation, and integration.

At Axia Engineering, we are not just trying to adapt for a new reality. We were built for that reality from the ground up.

James Doherty


With 10 years’ experience in the civil engineering and construction profession, James thrives on getting things done. Working across D & C and construct only projects, he has developed a strong background in investigating and instigating value engineering on projects, identifying alternative solutions that both meet client requirements and project specification.

Especially strong in project management, James’ approach is both thorough and timely, effectively managing QA, environmental and safety elements.


Keith Peters


With a proven record in earthworks and utilities, Keith specialises in recognising project vulnerabilities and managing high-risk situations. From relocations of every major service asset category, to the safe removal and disposal of thousands of tonnes of asbestos contaminated material, Keith has a strong capacity for finding practical and creative solutions for difficult problems.

Keith provides 10 years’ experience in a vast number of fields, excelling in civil construction and geotechnical engineering. An accomplished people manager, Keith builds strong relationships from the job site to the board room.
