Vert-X have a strong track record and extensive hands-on experience in residential and low-rise commercial structures. As a boutique consultancy - we stick to our core business and focus on delivery quality design every time, supported throughout the project by great service.
Complimenting our core team, we have a network of high-quality individuals and companies that enable us to provide advice and wrap around services on all structural and civil engineering matters tailored to the needs of the project.
Structural Engineering Design Services
Our approach is to develop initial ideas using approximate design methods as we work through the conceptual and preliminary design phases of the project. Our interactive approach works by creating solutions that are aligned with the project constraints and objectives. From there, more complex analysis and CAD/Revit modelling is undertaken to provide well considered and detailed design that is always a critical part of a successful project.
This staged approach enables cost-effective solutions to be identified and discussed earlier in the design process, which ultimately saves time, money, and headaches down the track. This methodology is continually evolving based on new technology and balances time and budget pressures and sustainability drivers to ensure we can deliver the optimum solution that meets the client’s aesthetic, functional and commercial brief.
Vert-X offer services in land development subdivisions, retaining wall and foundation designs, roading culverts and pavement design.
We have built up trusted relationships with many different stakeholders including councils, service providers and contractors. These factors all help smooth the road to completion of a job well done, within budget and time constraints.
Site Assessment and Early Stage Engineering Advice
We all know it is the unexpected challenges that can de-rail any building project – causing major headaches with time delays, budgets and aesthetic constraints.
As an engineering team, we can often foresee where design challenges will arise before any significant money is outlaid on design or site clearance. Talking to us early about your projects vision can help identify pragmatic options to minimise building headaches down the track.
Vert-X have a strong track record and extensive hands-on experience in all types of residential and low-rise commercial structures, including traditional and alternative building methods.
We work closely with our clients, the design and construction teams to develop innovative solutions that exceed your expectations.
Collaboration and communication brings you the most cost effective and practical building solution without compromising the visual appeal.
Working with historic buildings and environments requires specialist knowledge and a sensitive approach. The Vert-x team have experience in a range of heritage works, and have contributed significantly to the successful conservation, protection and adaptation of important structures and landscapes.
When undertaking seismic strengthening within existing buildings it is critical to understand the value of the fabric of historic assets, balancing this with cost effective solutions that are sympathetic to the building at hand. We listen to our clients’ needs and work with them to develop an approach that delivers the desired outcomes for each individual project.
Detailed Design and Modelling
Whether it’s a residential or a commercial project, finding simple, economic solutions that look good and are practical to construct is always our goal.
We are experienced in the structural design of steel, concrete and engineered wood structures and utilise various computer software packages throughout the design phases of the project to create the optimal design.
Our structural engineers work closely with our CAD technicians as the drawings progress to work through complex issues in 3D on the computer before they become an problem on site. Our CAD technicians use REVIT 2D and 3D software to create high quality drawings that, ultimately, enable the design to be realised.
Our specialist areas include structural and foundation design of:
All forms of residential construction
New low rise commercial
Seismic strengthening of existing low rise commercial projects
Ensuring your project is built to the specifications is a key part of having peace of mind and also a key component in gaining code compliance. We offer a range of services for construction observation for all types of projects both for our own projects and for projects designed by others.
