Australia is at the forefront of the green building and sustainable building practices. LEED certification is the most widely used green building rating system in the world and means a healthier, more productive design with reduced stress on the environment.
Thinking of undertaking a refurbishment or upgrade? Need an assessment of existing systems and infrastructure? An existing condition report will help identify elements which may need replacement, upgrading, are non compliant or require preventive maintenance to ensure building systems are compliant and function efficiently.
Looking at purchasing an existing building or asset? A Due Diligence report will provide an assessment of the existing systems, identify areas of non compliance and highlight potential costs of system upgrades and replacements prior to purchase.
Thinking of building, developing or preparing a Development Application? Are you aware of legislative and code requirements for space and clearance requirements of hydraulic systems? These items can be identified at this early stage and reduce impacts on appearance and layout in the future.
Are you undertaking plumbing and drainage works? You will require a plumbing and drainage approval from your local authority before undertaking any work on site. We will prepare and lodge these plans for you as part of preparing your hydraulic services design.
Building and development over 500sqm will require a dedicated fire system to ensure the occupants safety in the event of a fire. These systems are subject to the review and approval of the local fire authority. We can prepare documentation for approval by your local fire authority for your development or building.
