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:

Retail

Recent changes in development policies for retail centres in Western Australia has provided opportunities for existing centres to be further developed.

Pritchard Francis has worked on some of Perth’s largest retail sites, both greenfield developments and projects to expand existing facilities. Understanding the key issues governing the development of new shopping facilities is critical to a successful outcome. Of prime importance for existing centres is ensuring retail trade and public access is maintained during construction periods. This usually demands multi-staging of demolition and construction works.

Pritchard Francis develops engineering solutions for these projects that are economical in materials and time, and are flexible enough to cater for the staging requirement of the works.
