Since 1973, Vipac Engineers & Scientists has been delivering engineering solutions worldwide that foster innovation, transform skylines and shape the testing landscape.

Our NATA accredited laboratories, wind tunnels, acoustic and climatic chambers, and vibration equipment enable our engineers to perform a wide array of testing. This allows unusual materials to be tested to prove their feasibility to clients and add value to projects.

From a collaboration with NASA on space shuttles, to energy efficiency testing of white-goods, to structural integrity analyses of Defence vehicles, to advising on the world’s tallest building, our service portfolio is as diverse as our workforce.

With 150 qualified specialists and offices located throughout Australia, we combine international expertise with local knowledge to support the communities in which we work. Vipac has NATA accreditation, ISO 9001 certification and is Australia's only ABS recognised Ambient Environmental Testing Specialist.
