Melbourne Civil & Structural Engineers is a provider of civil engineering services. We are highly experienced in stormwater drainage designs for a variety of developments including houses, multi-level apartments and industrial warehouses.
Stormwater drainage systems are designed to convey and discharge rainwater offsite into the local council’s stormwater system via a series of drainage pits and pipes. We can provide an effective, practical and detailed storm water drainage design that meets your architectural designs and site conditions.
As part of our specialised service we will liaise with the relevant council on your behalf to obtain the "legal point of discharge" document prior to design. We then work collaboratively with the council to meet their requirements and obtain fast approval of the civil designs. We also provide the certificate of compliance for the civil design upon request.
We approached MCS Engineers to investigate the cracked walls and brickwork at our home. A couple of builders and underpinners had already inspected the damages and provided me with their quotations to repair the damages and underpin the building. A Geotechnical Engineer had also recommended underpinning. Adam from MCS Engineers attended the property and carried out an extremely thorough investigation of the damages which no one else did, he also examined the building permits and engineering reports and found a series of issues and underlying causes of the damage. He got to the bottom of the issue and found the water leaks that were causing the damages. Had we not engaged MCS to investigate, we could have ended up spending thousands of dollars for the repairs and could have ended up with the same issue again as the underlying causes were not identified. Adam was very professional and he also took the time to explain everything in detail in a language that someone with no engineering/ building background could understand and recommended the most appropriate remedial action required. The fee for the investigation was money well spent as it saved us thousands in repairs that could have resulted in the same issue a few months down the track. It goes to show the importance of professionals and the expertise they carry and will definitely use MCS in the future and highly recommend them.Inzi - WANTIRNA - VIC
