Advitech’s structural, mechanical, civil, functional safety and process engineers regularly perform on-site inspections for all-manner of critical assets.
With over 30 years engineering experience throughout Australia and internationally, we have built up extensive knowledge of regulatory requirements, Australian Standards and codes of practice relevant to your plant, and we are not afraid to travel.
It’s all part of working closely with you to deliver a better experience, and the best results.
Whether you need to achieve a regulatory compliance, ‘sweat’ an ageing asset, increase throughput, or just want piece-of-mind, our engineers have the expertise to assist you with your decision.
As an outcome of any inspection, Advitech has the resources and tools to provide thorough analytical support, and our experienced drafters can design modifications or solutions to reinstate or improve structures and plant, in the most cost-effective way.
Additionally, Advitech is experienced in developing risk-based asset management plans and can help develop a strategy applicable to your operation.
Advitech’s engineers can provide independent, third-party certification of new or existing designs for compliance against Australian and International standards, industry codes of practice, Mine Design Guidance (MDG) or other specific requirements (e.g. Defence).
Our experienced engineers are Chartered Professional Engineers (CPEng), Registered Professional Engineers of Queensland (RPEQ), and registered on the National Professional Engineers Register (NPER).
