As Perth consolidates and increases density closer to services/amenity/civic infrastructure/employment and as technology improves, sites previously too expensive to develop or at the end of their original use become prime targets for redevelopment and regeneration.
Issues that have made sites prohibitively expensive in the past may include; being impacted by its historical use (environmental impacts, existing buildings etc.) or being geotechnically constrained (karst, peat, tipping).
Pritchard Francis has significant experience on major redevelopment/infill land development projects requiring remediation. Projects are supported through feasibility/due diligence, planning, concept design, approval processes, detailed design and documentation, site supervision and contract administration, to receipt of authority clearances.
Successful projects rely on the skills and experience of engineers to identify key issues applicable to a project and successfully managing these issues through the life of the project. This includes understanding the opportunities for suitability, environmental responsibility and economic efficiencies (that often incorporate design advice and vertical integration from our structural engineering team).
