As the resource sector continues to be a major contributor of Western Australia’s national and international identity, Pritchard Francis has adapted to suit the niche requirements of this industry in Western Australia.
Engineering of process infrastructure requires a unique approach in the design and delivery of projects. These structures are generally highly serviced and require a high level of coordination between process engineers and the structural design team. Issues relating to dynamic loading, fatigue, serviceability, maintenance and robustness often impact heavily on design.
Brownfield and greenfield projects both in Australia and overseas have been undertaken by Pritchard Francis in the iron ore, chemical and petroleum industry.
Our experience from Heavy Industrial, Manufacturing and Marine projects are also directly relevant to the Resources sector.
Our team routinely provides resource engineering consultancy services within the below listed sectors.
Additionally, in 2017 Pritchard Francis diversified its market sector services offering with the acquisition of Scope Australia. Scope is a multi-disciplinary engineering group servicing the mining and resources sector. Their work includes process plant engineering and project services (comprising multifaceted engineering studies - scoping, prefeasibility and definitive feasibility).
