Barrason’s Engineers are growing their reputation in the building industry for high quality and efficient structural and civil design work. The brainchild of founder and managing director Andrew Barraclough, Barrason’s Engineers first opened their doors in 2017 serving the local community of Pakenham and surrounding suburbs. Today Barrason’s Engineers provide residential design and inspection services throughout Victoria and their specialist engineers in prefabricated concrete have assisted the build of several of Australia’s award-winning commercial buildings.
Barrason’s are insured and registered engineering professionals in all Australian states and territories and active members of a number of professional industry bodies, including the Housing Industry Association and Engineers Australia. We were founding members of the Australian Engineered Fasteners & Anchors Council. Our specialist engineers represent on Australian Standards committees to develop new standards relevant to concrete, prefabricated concrete structures, steel reinforcing and prestressed materials. Our engineering managers have written nationally and internationally published research papers and delivered technical presentations for Engineers Australia accredited CPD programs. We have just completed the establishment of the Prefabricated Concrete Elements Code of Practice 2019 for Victoria and are adapting a similar code for the ACT. We are recognised as leaders in our field.
After many years working as a design engineer in the construction industry, Andrew founded the firm with a desk, a computer and a burning desire to create a structural consultancy that could become a family legacy for his children. In fact, our name Barrason’s is a conflation of Andrew’s surname with his four sons – leading to ongoing interoffice disputes over apostrophe placement. Through hard work and reliable customer service, our firm has been growing strongly ever since and now has over 30 employees and many desks.
We love giving back to our community. During the 2019 bushfire season Andrew and the team transported donated food down to Sale in West Gippsland, nourishing the hardworking volunteers fighting the fires. We also support Engineers Without Borders Engineering On Country program, financially assisting the provision of much needed infrastructure for remote Australian indigenous communities. We believe in moving forward together.
