Residential Engineering

We have a strong emphasis on housing, and strive to deliver residential engineering services that achieve the best possible outcome for every home we work on.

Our engineers will personally assess, design and document a project from start to finish; none of their work is sent off shore or to other departments for drafting.

High volume engineering solutions for project builders

VHC Engineers is structured to handle a large number of projects at any one time, and this has made us one of Melbourne’s leading engineering consultancies in the residential building industry. Our reputation has grown over the years due to an unwavering commitment to quality and reliance on smart design to minimise waste and reduce costs. 

We reject armchair design when it comes to drawing plans, and we use comprehensive soil testing and data from our exclusive database of over 20,000 site samples to create a design that best suits the site conditions. To ensure continuity, our engineers always draw whatever they design; this task will never be outsourced to other departments.

Build inspections to ensure timely delivery of your project

During construction we are on standby to inspect construction. This allows your project to maintain its progress during construction, and not be delayed. We are able to do the mandatory inspections associated with a building permit; currently we inspect about half of our work on behalf of the registered building surveyors overseeing the building permit.

By doing this we optimise the clarity of the information, ensuring that LIS is constantly evolving and remaining relevant to current areas of development; as new data is included some of the old data is retired to alternative data sets.

We combine our extensive local experience with soil testing and real-world data from LIS to work towards the optimal outcome for every project. These insights are handed to our team, who are able to develop cost-effective and sustainable solutions.

A quick peek into part of our  report

LIS information improves the accuracy and relevance of Ys estimations/calculations.
Filled sites pose problems, one of which being where Clay fill originated from.
The nearby LIS data provides assistance in the evaluation of any imported fill.

LIS data allows us to make accurate comparisons between sites.

Data captured by LIS can report on deep clay zones in each site.
The data captured by LIS also reveals fill depth differences.
