Our Capability

As a second generation family business, we know what it takes to get the job done.

And our clients know that when we take on a job, we will complete it… and we will do it well. For you, it’s as simple as that.

For us, it’s the quality control and responsiveness our Liverpool manufacturing site allows…

…it is our fully equipped vent installation truck and a highly qualified team that can handle any challenge a site throws at them.

And it is decades of experience and knowledge of compliance that you just can’t learn overnight.

Project management solutions

Project Management

We can provide project management solutions for the installation of complete end-to-end designs. We work collaboratively along with major manufacturers and Sydney Water major constructors for the smooth installation of odour control units.

More than just the experience, we also have the tools to get the job done.

Our mobile workshop is fully equipped to handle any challenges a site throw at us… and our fleet of cranes allow safe delivery and installation of shafts.

  • Work collaboratively with Project Engineers on both design and implementation requirements
  • Flexible scheduling to adapt to project changes and demands
  • Focus on compliance – Environmental, Quality and Safety
  • Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS); Inspect and Test Plan (ITP); and WSHE documentation
  • Hands-on approach

“When contracting other companies, it can be a struggle having to oversee their work; however, SVSR gets the job done without question.”
Adrian Rodriguez, Suir Excavations

Innovation and collaborating


We are committed to innovation and collaborating with the industry in sewer vent shaft and cowl design, fabrication and installation. We do this by:

  • Increasing spending on research and development
  • Collaborating with research institutions and research partners
  • Offering student internships in relevant skill areas
  • Upgrading equipment
  • Improving inventory management and operational processes
  • Building innovative industry-based partnerships through our membership of the Southern Strength Agile Manufacturing Network and Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre

Our R&D process has resulted in the design of market leading vent shaft cowls.

  • Collaboration with Industry and Academic experts, e.g. UNSW, SSAMN, AMGC, etc
  • Innovative solutions, adapting existing products to comply with project demands
  • Unique cowl designs, driven by site environments
Best design to suit the job


Show us any plan and we will know the best design to suit the job. We custom tailor designs and design innovative vents and cowls for long-term reliability.  It’s called experience. Decades of it.

We can meet you on site to scope the project – whatever it takes to give you the end result you need – a quality job, delivered on time that meets the water authority compliance standards.

We provide detailed design advice, odour/gas assessment and condition assessment of existing vent shafts, helping you plan your maintenance budget.

  • Assessment of drawings to ensure suitability and feasibility of fabrication
  • Site estimation prior to design sign-off
  • CAD drawings in multiple formats for customised products
  • Provide flexible solutions to meet architectural briefs
  • Offer alternatives to suit job specs
SVSR - Fabrication Process


Our fabrication process ensures the highest quality because we oversee every step of the process. We’ve been doing this for more than 25 years and there is nothing we haven’t seen.

The knowledge and experience of our team ensure that we are using the best materials and welds for the job.

Our process ensures maximum asset life and minimal on-going maintenance costs.
And because of our local manufacturing, the job is done faster and more efficiently.

Our fabrication process includes:

  • Material Certificates for all components
  • NATA qualified testing as required by the Water Authority
  • Compliance with Sydney Water bead blasting finishing standards to Ra 3.5 – 4.5
  • Coating to WSA 201. PUR_B system for preparing, priming and painting assets
  • A selection of multiple colours and finishes are available on request e.g. powder coating
  • Continual upgrading of machinery, tools and processes
  • GMAW, GTAW and MSAW welding to NATA assessed procedures & qualifications
  • 304/316 stainless steel fabrication
  • On-site manufacturing of all components – shaft, base, reo cage, rag bolt assemblies, cowls

One of the many benefits of our local manufacturing is that we always have a buffer of critical components in stock.

We know that you’re facing time and budget pressures in your project so we are flexible and responsive to get you what you need, when you need it.

Compliance and safety


Every site brings new challenges and we have the experience and know-how to implement practical solutions. Compliance and safety are our top priorities.

“Given the hazardous nature of the job, I was very pleased your team took their WH&S responsibilities very seriously and carried out their work accordingly. They did a superb job in a difficult work environment, to a level beyond what I expected. I was thoroughly impressed with their initiative and goodwill.”
Paul MacDonald, Manager Waste & Recycling Services, Campbelltown City Council

Our team is experienced and licensed in the installation, removal and relocation of sewer vent shafts. From reo fabrication to concrete formwork and finishing, we are across Sydney and regional Council and Water Agency requirements.

We have a fully equipped mobile workshop with hiab and welding capability as well as a fleet of cranes with licensed crane operators and dogmen.

Our installation services include:

Installation of new vent shafts
For urban development projects or “Greenfields” Estates we partner with you on the design, fabrication and installation of new or existing vent shafts. We have been in this industry for decades… and we have seen the landscape transform. This is our core business… and our standards are second to none!

Renewal of existing vent shafts
This is a cost-effective option over the long-term for infrastructure and asset owners due to the minimal ongoing maintenance required. We have demolished and replaced thousands of vent shafts across NSW for Councils, Sydney Water and other water agencies throughout Australia.

Demolition and relocation of vent shafts to a new site
An important part of the development process is relocating existing infrastructure or establishing a temporary installation of a sewer vent shaft. SVSR can advise on asset location requirements, carry out project coordination as well as conduct on-site works to ensure important assets are protected whilst meeting community, water agency and developer requirements.
