Structural Engineering

Structural design incorporates all elements of the building form. It encourages creativity and requires integration of aesthetic design, functionality, constructability and commerciality. Providing structures that resist imposed loads and perform appropriately for their intended use is fundamental. The challenge of structural engineering is to provide the right solution to projects in an economical way without compromise.

Pritchard Francis implements innovative structural engineering solutions incorporating economical design and sustainable principles.

Our team regularly provides structural engineering consultancy services within the following sectors:

Aged Care

Aged care accommodation has changed significantly over many years and continues to change. Facilities often provide for multiple services such as low care / high care, dementia and independent living. Multi level buildings with a broad range of supporting facilities are common and continue to evolve.

As these buildings become more sophisticated in the way they service their residences, the design challenges escalate. Traditional domestic construction no longer suits these complex and highly serviced facilities.

Pritchard Francis have completed several of the larger aged care facilities within Western Australia with great success and high commendation from clients and design consultants alike.
