Professional services from design to delivery
At Partridge we are passionate about creating structures where form and function are perfectly balanced.
Our core range of structural engineering services includes:
A central part of the Partridge business, we specialise in stunning one-off architectural designs. We collaborate closely with architects to understand their vision and translate it into reality. By supporting the architect’s creativity with innovative yet practical building solutions, our role is to enhance both the structural and design integrity. Our daily work varies from the extremely small (like simply knocking a wall out between a living room and kitchen), to medium-sized alterations and additions projects, to huge all-new residences and mansions.
Partridge has vast experience in the development of townhouses, unit blocks, housing estates and mixed-use residential and retail precincts. With the complexities of strict council controls, building codes, regulations, parking, fire-ratings, sustainability requirements and more, multi-residential projects can cause major headaches if not expertly designed. With years of experience, Partridge delivers solutions that tick the three essential boxes – the architect achieves their vision, the builder can efficiently get the structure up, and the client meets budget.
Partridge has worked on a huge number of commercial buildings such as premium retail stores, cafes and restaurants, shopfront fitouts, and so forth. Our commercial work also takes in office buildings, industrial premises, and even a wind tunnel!
Institutional & Healthcare
Partridge excels at institutional and healthcare projects large and small. Major school and university buildings (including all-new entire school campuses); childcare centres; kindergartens, community centres; aged care; medical centres; halls and assembly buildings; emergency services buildings; local government projects; and all manner of public buildings.
Façade and Glazing
Partridge has in-depth knowledge and experience with contemporary structural glass in uses such as high-end shop fronts, floors, stairs and balustrades. Partridge can help with expert design, investigation, testing, reporting and project management services to create beautiful glass buildings.
Partridge has significant experience in refurbishing old and heritage buildings to bring them up to modern engineering standards while remaining true to their original design and materials. This has given us a deep understanding of the characteristics, behaviour and needs of older materials and structures.
As the move towards sustainable development continues at a rapid pace, Partridge is a leader in solar panel integration from domestic installations to multi-million dollar projects. By combining our structural and design expertise, we can integrate systems of the highest efficiency, safety and practicality standards.
Modern landscape architecture is challenging and expanding the traditional forms and uses of public spaces and outdoor areas. As a result, our structural engineers work more closely than ever with landscape architects to design safe and accessible contemporary structural solutions such as stone faced retaining walls, balustrade systems, bridges, pavilions, viewing platforms and large public art installations.
