Every time you use an energy efficient fridge, watch a sports match unobstructed by shadows, breathe clean air in a carpark or lean safely on a balcony, know that an engineer is likely behind it. Here are some engineering solutions we’ve developed over the years:

Hydro Tasmania

HYDRO TASMANIA

We helped Hydro Tasmania understand how noise and air pollution were propagated and dispersed during the 2016 Tasmanian energy crisis.

Sharm El-Sheikh Airports

SHARM EL-SHEIKH AIRPORT, EGYPT

Our in-depth wind tunnel testing reduced the building supplies needed to construct the airport, leading to substantial cost savings for our client.

Jenan Gardens

JENAN GARDENS, SAUDI ARABIA

Through our microclimate design, we harnessed sea breezes, improved outdoor comfort and reduced energy costs.

Southern Cross Station

SOUTHERN CROSS STATION, MELBOURNE

Our wind-driven rain study for Leighton Contractors helped us confirm that the roof wouldn’t leak when it rains.

One Steel Whyalla Steelworks

ONE STEEL WHYALLA STEELWORKS, SOUTH AUSTRALIA

We answered the call during an emergency plant shutdown and reduced the vibration levels to <1mm/s using a multi-channel data acquisition system.

Soehanah Drilling Rig

SOEHANAH DRILLING RIG, INDONESIA

Through vibration, noise, indoor climate and lighting analyses, we reduced personal fatigue and improved productivity on board.

Bacngkok Airport - Vipac Company Overview

SUVARNABHUMI AIRPORT, BANGKOK

We helped travellers cool down through a system of radiant floor cooling and displacement diffusers, thereby reducing the airport’s costs and carbon footprint.

Sepon Mine - Vipac Company Overview

SEPON GOLD & COPPER MINE, LAOS

After conducting a site wide assessment of noise, whole-body vibration and air emissions, we lowered the risk of injury and increased the culture of safety.

Westpac Head Office - Vipac Company Overview

VICTORIA’S WESTPAC HEADQUARTERS, MELBOURNE

Working with Grocon, we helped the building achieve its NABERS and Green Star recognition through energy and sustainability information.

Our equipment is state-of-the-art and our capabilities extensive.

Wind Engineering Services - Vipac Company Overview

Our Wind Tunnel can simulate severe hurricane winds such as in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the northern parts of Australia.

Environmental Testing - Vipac Company Overview

Our climatic facility can simulate the sun’s glaring
heat in the peak of Summer.

Vibration and Shock Qualification Testing - Vipac Company Overview

Our vibration chambers can
test a car door’s electrical cables by simulating a door opening and closing during a lifetime of use.

Roof Top Pool, Melbourne Head Office - Vipac Company Overview

In line with our sustainability principles, our rooftop pool is heated entirely by vehicle emissions from our testing facility- emissions that would otherwise disperse into the air.

We are a 100% Australian-owned, NATA-accredited laboratory, an AS/NZS ISO 9001:2015 compliant company and Australia’s only ABS recognised specialist in Ambient Environmental Testing in the Marine Sector. Our offices are located in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth.
