Hydraulic Design

When designing hydraulic and plumbing systems for projects in Queensland and throughout Australia, it’s essential that the design balances being practical, cost effective, and environmentally sustainable, incorporating safety in design for building maintenance into the future and being able to stand the test of time.

Clients that we work with are looking for hydraulic design that reduces their risk during the project life cycle, protects them from cost overruns, and ensures effective and efficient plumbing installation across a range of hydraulic systems.

Take stormwater design, for example.

All Australian buildings are vulnerable to the harsh Australian weather conditions, but our stormwater design standards do tend to be overkill. Here at DMA Engineers we’ve been able to simulate weather conditions to push design outside the Australian standard. Hear how we were able to do this on a recent airport renovation project in Central Queensland.

We help our clients achieve these results across a range of hydraulic systems including:

·       Potable water services
·       Hot water generation and reticulation
·       Gas services including LPG and Natural Gas
·       Filtration and purification systems
·       Irrigation systems
·       Rainwater harvesting and re-use
·       Grey water treatment and re-use
·       Stormwater drainage and management

·       Syphonic drainage
·       Waste water collection and treatment systems
·       Vacuum systems
·       Sanitary drainage and plumbing
·       Trade waste drainage and pre-treatment systems
·       Fire hydrant and fire hose reel systems
·       Water conservation and auditing

Are you waiting too long for hot water?

If you’re waiting longer than 10 seconds for water in your bathroom, you’re waiting to long. Get the water weight hydraulic design on your next building project right, and stop the wait.

Do you need a plumber or a hydraulic consultant for your building project?

Do you know where the QBCC draws the line on notifiable plumbing works, so you can decide if you need a plumber or a hydraulic consultant for your building project? As a former plumber, DMA Engineer’s Hydraulic Principal Rory O’Malley explains how to work it out.

Our Hydraulic Design Services

At DMA, our approach to hydraulic design is based on our constant evaluation of new and innovative technologies, and understanding the latest plumbing trends. We then work with our clients to implement the ideas that will have the most impact on their project, lowering their longer-term risk, delivering solutions that will outlast a project’s lifecycle, or saving them time and money.

All of DMA’s hydraulic consultants hold current plumber, drainer and gas fitting licences in Queensland, allowing us to bring practical onsite knowledge and experience into each design and every piece of advice.

Our in-depth local knowledge of infrastructure authorities and councils in Queensland and throughout Australia helps us to provides efficient documentation delivery and hydraulic advice on every project, speeding up the process for our clients and helping them to cut through red tape. Our clients also tell us that the documentation we provide is comprehensive, yet simple to understand, giving them greater confidence in the design process and enabling us to deliver the designs faster and more efficiently.

Our team are fully BIM (Building Information Modelling) enabled and can model the hydraulic design in 3D and coordinate with other services before works start on site. The 3D model enables the contractor and builder to validate the installation on site, reducing RFI’s and variations. Our 3D models can be intelligently linked to time constraints (4D), procurement (5D) and lifecycle costs (6D) for the project to ensure that it’s delivered on time and budget.

Clients typically engage us to assist them with:

–       Building Information Modelling (BIM)
–       Due Diligence
–       Existing Conditions Reports
–       Feasibility studies
–       Concept Design
–       Detailed Design
–       Development Applications
–       Plumbing approvals
–       Budget estimates
–       Value management

–       Cost plans
–       Tender evaluation
–       Contract Administration
–       Construction Support
–       Facility Management
–       Plumbing estimating
–       Deem to satisfy designs
–       Services auditing
–       Peer reviews
–       Installation inspections
