Virtual Consulting Engineers blends industry experience with first principles through all project stages, from inception to design and construction. We combine judicious use of standard designs with customised spreadsheets and software packages:
- EPA-SWMM (Storm Water Management Model) is used for analysis and design of open channel flows, for stormwater and sewerage, from steady state to peak propagation
- EPA Net is used to model flow of water through networks
- SLOPE/W is used to analyse stability of earth structures
- AutoCAD and Civil3D is used to integrate design and drafting
Our contract documentation is rooted in SANS 1200 Standardised Specification for Civil Engineering Construction, which is augmented or exchanged with the different parts of SANS 2001 Construction Works for technical descriptions of materials and workmanship. We also provide in-house quantity surveying services.
