“Vipac’s laboratory mock-up testing has provided significant cost and efficiency benefits for our current 150 Collins Street project. Vipac’s testing also provided sustainability and energy demand information to help with the building’s recognition through ratings such as the National Building Energy Rating Scheme (NABERS) and Green Star.”
“Vipac has been a valued partner in ensuring that our plants get back online faster and with greater reliability. Their extensive knowledge base and understanding of Origin’s safety and operational requirements have been integral to these successful outcomes.”
“I approached Vipac initially to undertake some baseline vibration analysis and noise surveys on a new 500kW pump and motor that was installed. Vipac helped me by providing professional and well qualified staff with full knowledge of the Australian standards and machine analysis. Vipac also undertook FEA modelling on the pump set once it was discovered that the vibrations were above the required limits. The result was a highly precise and easy to implement solution that fulfilled all of the requirements specified by me and my client.

“Collaborating with Vipac we were able to develop an undulating façade for the tower, which disrupts the down-ward flow of wind and mitigates against the adverse wind effects that are normally associated with tall towers of this sort. This research was vital for receiving planning consent.”
“The team of experts at Vipac Engineers & Scientists have been a welcomed partnership in our endeavour for excellence. Thanks to their OHS Noise and Sound Power assessments and subsequent delivery of technical and administrative solutions, Vipac helped reduce workers’ exposure to noise.
Furthermore, in adherence to strict environmental policies, Vipac identified critical noise hazards to help protect and ensure the coexistence with local fauna. Vipac has set exceedingly high benchmarks for future OHS Assessment work and we look forward to working with them again.”
For Comtruk, it was imperative that the new Sport Utility Bed (SUB) was developed to meet the performance standards expected to match the vehicle the SUB was fitted to. Therefore, we recently contracted Vipac to conduct durability testing on the SUB. In collaboration with Comtruk engineers, Vipac’s team of engineers and scientists prepared and executed a test plan that exposed the SUB to simulated severe off-road and on-road conditions using a Vipac dynamic durability test cell.
The testing was brutal and exposed a number of learnings which have now been rectified and retested. The learnings from this test and validation phase was critical to ensure the SUB met the quality performance standards expected by statutory bodies and customers. It is reassuring to know that we will launch the SUB with confidence, mitigating risk associated with potential field or warranty claims. The exercise was a great business outcome for all concerned.

“Vipac has been instrumental in assisting during the construction phase of the Mundaring Water Treatment Plant project.
Vipac has been Brookfield Multiplex’s preferred provider for environmental monitoring ranging from dust, to noise and vibration monitoring and modeling. As consultants for the $330M project, Vipac’s modeling of construction noise contours and noise management plan translated into tangible benefits of extended working hours for Brookfield multiplex and provided some assurance to the local Mundaring residents.
As this is a rare major development in the area which will service 33,000 rural town services through to Kalgoorlie, this project has demanded high levels of accuracy and trust, both of which Vipac always exceeded our expectations. Rob and his team have always been willing to help whenever the need arose and continuously deliver innovative solutions with high levels of efficiency. I look forward to an opportunity to work with the Vipac team again in the future.”
