The key to our success is our people. We’ve assembled a team of professionals that take pride in their work and are committed to delivering exceptional results. We love what we do, and deliver on our promises.
Every job is an opportunity to improve and reinforce our reputation for quality and reliability.
Our people are our success.
Our team is like a family; we care for and support each other so we get the best result for our clients.
We celebrate our different backgrounds, skills and experiences. We believe there are no boundaries on what our people can achieve, and we’re committed to providing the training and support to help each one be their best.
In the midst of the 1990’s recession, a young and ambitious David Cosca was presented with an electrical contracting opportunity and decided to grab it with both hands. It was a huge stretch, but he backed himself and delivered. And so Vast Electrical was born.
That innovative, problem-solving approach and ‘can-do’ attitude is ingrained in our DNA. For over 20 years we’ve backed ourselves to take on new challenges and get the job done on time, on spec and on budget. We want to set the benchmark that others aspire to achieve. We consider each project a partnership, and we step up to deliver outstanding results underpinned by safety, training and technology. We’ve never paid LDs yet, and we don’t plan on starting now.
David thinks big, and has built a team that has the skills, experience and drive to take on new challenges and reliably deliver the high quality results we’re known for. Growing from a small team to a big deal requires a strong culture, and David’s role has changed significantly over the journey – while he still gets onsite where he can, he now oversees all projects and focuses on mentoring our team to be their best.
David is excited to watch our young and hungry team continue to develop the skills and experience to reach their full potential and deliver great results for our partners. Our success has been driven by our people, and it’s our people that will drive our standards of quality and reliability over the next 20 years and beyond. Who knows what we can achieve?
Vast Electrical’s record of quality and reliability is driven by our people and our culture. To maintain our high standards, Sandra’s primary focus is to support our people and strengthen our culture. It starts with having the right people who align with the company’s values and who share the same hunger to be better every day. We then ensure our people have the tools, training and safety measures in place to get the job done safely on time, on spec and on budget. Finally, everyone from the Managing Director down needs to continually reinforce a culture of safety, quality and delivery through our actions.
Sandra works with the Managing Director, CFO and Executive Leadership team to set and refine the strategic focus of the business to ensure our activities are aligned to our financial focus and company values. With a strategic outlook underpinned by an innovation mindset, we harness technology to streamline project reporting and completion and provide exceptional solutions for our partners.
What excites Sandra most about her role is helping our people to grow and be their best. Vast Electrical’s goal is to set the standard in electrical contracting that others aspire to reach. Sandra is proud of what we’ve achieved to date, humbled by the team we have assembled, and excited by what the future holds.View More

Our commitment to creating new leaders from within means there are opportunities for great performers to progress their careers.
