  • Scope Australia has recently joined Pritchard Francis
  • Scope Australia is a fully owned subsidiary of the Pritchard Francis group
  • Scope Australia will continue to operate independently
  • Pritchard Francis will remain a civil and structural engineering consultancy practice
  • Scope Australia is a multi-disciplinary engineering group servicing the mining and resources sector

Pritchard Francis has diversified its market sector services with the acquisition of Scope Australia.

Pritchard Francis will continue primarily as a civil and structural consulting practice, working in multiple sectors, including buildings, land development, civil infrastructure, transport, industrial, defence and non-process infrastructure.

“We are excited by the opportunities and diversity Scope Australia will bring to the Pritchard Francis group,” Arthur Psaltis, Chief Executive Officer of Pritchard Francis has said, “The common values of both entities will provide the foundation for Pritchard Francis to support the continued development of Scope Australia.”

Scope Australia primarily offers multi-disciplinary services in the mining sector and will continue to focus on providing these services in process plant engineering and project services (including multifaceted engineering studies – scoping, prefeasibility and definitive feasibility).

Both companies will continue to operate in their current forms, providing high level engineering consulting to their respective clientele. The complementary offerings of both companies will allow Scope Australia to expand into Northern Australia, an area where Pritchard Francis has a growing presence.

Executive Manager for Scope Australia, Rainer Rasmussen notes that, “Scope joining Pritchard Francis provides both businesses instant diversity. The limited overlap in market sectors makes this a great fit for both firms – setting each up for growth in their respective areas of expertise. Supported by a large and well respected consultancy in Pritchard Francis, it is an exciting time ahead as Scope continues to grow its presence in the Resources sector.”
