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:

Hotel & Tourism

With the states increasing focus on tourism and the ongoing need for regional short stay accommodation, hotel and tourism facilities will continue to be in demand.

Invariably, these structures are strongly influenced by architectural design. Hence, the challenge of providing simple, economical design solutions that satisfy the aesthetic requirements of the Architect.

Identifying the best construction methodology is a key component in providing the right solution. For these structures selecting the correct building materials, speed of construction and minimising cost, must work together with architectural form to produce a successful outcome.

Pritchard Francis has completed a broad range of hotel and tourism projects ranging from high rise to eco-friendly elevated accommodation over natural vegetation through to cantilevered and tensioned glazed entry statements for hotel buildings within the Perth CBD.
