VEC have completed several projects for the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DWELP - formally Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE)) over the past several years. These diverse projects range from culvert design and construction projects, to the replacement of multiple bridges.

One of the main challenges when delivering projects for the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning is that the project construction sites are often located in remote areas. VEC have often provided the client with a bridge design that comprises only of pre-cast elements. These pre-cast elements then often have to be transported over uneven road surfaces where accessing heavy machinery can be challenging.

The VEC crew have become accustomed to living away from home projects. VEC has a generous living away from home arrangement with the crew to ensure job satisfaction, mitigating any potential for industrial action. Where possible we always look at employing local resources to complement our project teams.

The following provide a summary of the projects that VEC have completed over the years for the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in Victoria:

  • Crossings in the Baw Baw, Bairnsdale and Swifts Creek Districts, Value: $1.8M, Completion: February 2016. Design and construction of 11 box culvert crossings in the Baw Baw, Bairnsdale and Swifts Creek Districts.
