Engineering and Design Services that Solve Problems

The variety of products made or distributed may be finished or raw. Our primary concern at VAA is engineering and designing a functional site and space for the processing, storage and transport of those products. We understand the requirements for strategic planning and timing of construction in jurisdictions across the U.S. and abroad.

In the agricultural sector, your focus may be grain or milling; we consult on truck and rail access, efficient process flow for storage facilities and export terminals. In the industrial sector, you may require sanitary food processing conditions or require storage of dry or liquid fertilizer. We design containment structures and consult on equipment placement; we develop process flow diagrams (PFDs) and piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs). In the buildings sector, you may be developing a new building in the hospitality or retail markets that requires civil or structural engineering. We listen to your needs and work with you to design your vision to reality with practical creativity and the latest technology.

VAA offers a suite of disciplines, including structural, civil, mechanical and electrical engineering as well as industrial architecture, rail design, general arrangement / process layout and master planning services. Our 3D modeling capabilities allow you to see your building or facility before it breaks ground – and make sure it meets your vision.

We focus on building long-term client relationships. Our clients range from Fortune 500 food manufacturing companies to owner-operated companies to architecture firms and general contractors that drive the economy
across the United States. VAA understands the ripple effect of delivering quality work that impacts owners, employees and customers.
