Pritchard Francis is pleased to announce the recent addition of Troy Oliver, as a Structural Project Leader in our Darwin office.
Troy first joined Pritchard Francis in 2010, as recipient of the Pritchard Francis Scholarship in Civil Engineering. He began his career in the Perth office, later moving to the Broome office for a period and undertaking local projects including Broome North Primary School, Broome Senior High School and the Kimberley District Police Complex, as well as travelling to remote sites in the Kimberley to undertake various site inspections. With a keen interest in and attraction to the Northern parts of Australia, Troy now undertakes a permanent senior role in our Darwin office.
Troy’s strong technical background has seen him undertake a lead role on a wide range of projects, including major non process infrastructure (Wheatstone and Gorgon projects), mining, education, retail and commercial developments.
Following his work in the field of blast design on the Wheatstone project, Troy travelled to Auckland, New Zealand, to present his paper entitled "Design of Blast Resistant Buildings in an LNG Processing Plant" at the 2014 ASEC Conference.
“Troy has developed rapidly during his time at Pritchard Francis. He brings to Darwin his experience from his time in Broome and on major resource projects in the Pilbara region. We’re really excited about him joining our Darwin team and providing a permanently based local structural engineer to service our growing client base,” says Gareth Jenkins, Pritchard Francis Regional Manager and Associate Director.
In addition to his technical expertise, Troy’s an avid fisherman, so if he’s not out exploring the bounds of Kakadu National Park, then you’re likely to find him chasing that elusive metre-long barra.
