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:

Marine

Western Australias’ rapid economic growth and heavy reliance on minerals and energy exports continues to place high demands on port facilities and port infrastructure. In addition, the inherent location and use of these facilities ultimately results in ongoing maintenance and repair.

The severity of this harsh marine environment and their unique locations provide specific challenges. Constructability, robustness, durability and appropriate forms of protection against miss-use and corrosion require experience and specialised expertise.

Pritchard Francis have completed many successful marine projects including structures for wharfs, dolphins and submerged concrete along with general port expansions and upgrades.
