VOS Group is a leading provider of lighting services with the knowledge that lighting design is a balance of aesthetics, technology and functionality. Our Lighting Design Team have over 16 years of experience in lighting design and bring a firm understanding of both the artistry and technology required to ensure a successful project.
VOS Group lighting designers work closely with our mechanical and electrical engineers providing full design calculations, documentation and advice on specialised feature and functional lighting. Mechanical Systems We are a customer focused, service oriented organisation delivering quality solutions through application of innovative technology and expertise. Our engineers and technical staff are amongst the best in the business and as such we can demonstrate experience in the management, design and construction of many commercial lighting projects. VOS Group’s combined expertise ensures the correct solution for the most demanding design criteria and lighting requirements.
Our designs are formulated using the latest computerised 3D rendering simulation software to predict lighting levels and patterns achieved. This ensures the lighting design is integrated with the overall project concepts and allows our clients the opportunity to understand the visual impact on the environment. Incorporating the architectural surroundings into the design creates a harmony between the building and lighting that complement each another.

VOS Group has the capacity to design the complete physical communications layer for Wide Area Networks, Local Area Network and Carrier Class Metropolitan Area Networks for both copper and Optical Fibre infrastructures.
From initial design through to implementation and after project support, our organisation can facilitate network infrastructure to meet the needs of corporate businesses now and into the future. Clients who have engaged these services include Microsoft, Swiss Re-Life, MYOB, Macquarie University, IBM, Dairy Farmer’s and Australia Radio Networks to mention a few.
Our association with Exodus and IasiaWorks both nationally and internationally provide VOS Group with the latest directions in communications infrastructure and, with an eye to emerging trends, our communications specialists plan and build in features that future-proof the installation.
The rapid advances in the complexity and control of Audio/Visual equipment means that equipment can now allow staff to virtually attend offices and interact with computer applications in, real time, any where around the globe.
VOS Group maintains relationships with market leading manufacturers embracing the latest tested technologies within our integrated designs.
VOS Group has been engaged to incorporate complete Audio/Visual systems within corporate boardrooms including teleconferencing, videoconferencing, concert theatre, boardroom and stadium venues.
At VOS, we define ecologically sustainable development as the use of resources in a manner that does not compromise the ability of future generations to use those resources. VOS Group strives to meet this objective by designing sites that minimise the demand for resources such as water, energy and materials, providing innovative alternative supply through water reuse and on-site generation of power. VOS engineers work closely with clients to identify solutions that achieve the most sustainable and cost effective outcome for every site. Each member of VOS Sustainability is a qualified engineer; this ensures sound design with excellent linkage to the ESD objectives of clients and other Building Services.
Team members are accredited under Green Star, NABERS and the CBD Scheme; all services are certified under the ISO 9000 Quality Assurance system. The VOS Sustainability is complemented by VOS’s in-house expertise in Mechanical, Electrical, Hydraulic & Fire, Vertical Transportation, Lighting, Security, Communication and Audiovisual Engineering. Each site offers unique opportunities for resource sustainability and our engineers identify these opportunities at the earliest project stage, working in close consultation with clients.
VOS Group’s design solutions provide sustainable energy, water and resource consumption, they are innovative without compromising building performance, they are also cost-effective in terms of initial capital cost, ongoing operations and maintenance expenditure. International best practice is the minimum benchmark for every project undertaken, with VOS Group committed to being leaders in the constantly evolving field of ecologically sustainable development. In every project undertaken, VOS engineers aim to identify design solutions that will maximise energy supply efficiency and minimise on-site energy demand, exceeding regulatory benchmarks and industry best practice.
VOS engineers apply the principles of ‘passive’ design strategy, such as natural ventilation and day lighting, with considered application of ‘active’ technologies such as efficient mechanical, hydraulic and lighting system components.
