HCAA - A New Standard

The Hydraulic Consultants Association of Australasia (HCAA) aims to provide a higher profile and focus for Hydraulic Services Engineers and Designers throughout the regions of Australasia.

Our members are engaged in the design, specification and inspection of hydraulic and fire protection systems such as:

  • stormwater drainage
  • fire services and;
  • gas services.



The HCAA offers various classes of membership to those who are suitably qualified and experienced in Hydraulic Services Design. It serves as a forum that facilitates the exchange of ideas, experiences and solutions, and for the resolution of problems affecting the profession and practice of hydraulic and fire protection service.


The HCAA is committed to assisting its members by promoting and developing their consulting businesses, expanding their individual careers and raising the profile of our industry nationally and abroad.


As an HCAA member you become an influential participant in the creation of national standards.

HCAA continually strives to provide a professional and representative voice on issues of significance in our growing industry. In addition, we offer a range of opportunities to members addressing topics of interest through industry news items and hydraulic engineering and fire protection events.


Throughout the year we organise technical events covering various subjects including water, drainage, energy, sustainability and updates on new legislation. These events aim to contribute to professional development and often stimulate debate among our members and other professionals in the hydraulics and building sector.
