Alexander & Associates was formed in 1994 by Mark Alexander. The early years of the organisation attracted large retail customers and appointments from Lend Lease for Chirnside Park Shopping Centre in Victoria and an appointment from Westfield for Southland Shopping Centre (Contract Administration) that instigated a period of rapid growth.

At that time design and documentation technology was also developing and the change over from “ink pen drawings” to AutoCAD complimented the company’s desire to excel in detailed design and documentation. AutoCAD provided a tool to develop high level, fully coordinated designs which suited the company well. The exceptional design standards achieved by Alexander & Associates became the industry benchmark that many organisations still aspire to achieve.

In the same year, Mark Alexander was elected to his first term as President of the Victorian Chapter of the Association of Hydraulic Services Consultants (AHSCA). This was a position held by Mark many times over the proceeding 18 years and as recently as 2012, Mark was again elected to the position of President by the members of the AHSCA (Vic).

During this period of time Mark also held positions of National President and also National Director.

In these various roles, Mark has been at the forefront of industry technology, regulatory developments and also represented the industry at many state and national forums.

After successfully completing major projects for Westfield and Lend Lease, further appointments followed. Projects varied in size, type and location. Project types varied from dairies in South Australia to the Base Hospital in Mildura, residential towers in Bangkok, laboratories and just about every type of commercial and institutional building including the Australian Synchrotron (see below).

As the company’s reputation permeated through the industry, more and more clients were requesting expert reports where there were concerns with other engineer’s designs or issues related to construction of the same. Soon legal firms were also offering expert appointments to Alexander & Associates. For some years the company juggled expert witness appointments with engineering appointments however, in 2008 Mark Alexander decided to close the engineering side of the Alexander & Associates to concentrate on expert witness appointments.
