Engineering consultancy Frazer-Nash has trebled the size of its national headquarters in Adelaide in response to increased demand for its services in Australia.
The consultancy now has a network of three Australian offices. SA Premier Steven Marshall officiated at the opening ceremony.
“We’ve created 40 high value jobs in SA and our fantastic, enlarged office gives us the space to create the next 40,” Frazer-Nash Australian Director Jonathan Armstrong said. “Our success is founded on being relevant to the future needs of our clients, being the best at what we do and caring deeply about how we do it.
“We align our services to transforming societal trends such as security in a changing world, urbanisation, decarbonising energy supply whilst ensuring reliability and affordability, the increased use of technology in agriculture and the pervasive imperative of innovation.
“We were delighted to be joined by the Premier and so many of our clients on this very special day.”
Since opening its first Australian office in 2010 Frazer-Nash has supported a number of projects in SA, including the Future Submarines. The company is helping develop a framework to ensure the seaworthiness of the submarines – focusing on the operational effectiveness, safety and environmental protection aspects of the program.
The company is also providing requirements engineering and modelling support to the Sea 1000 team – articulating the complex requirements of the submarine and devising a model in preparation for the concept design phase.
Frazer-Nash provides lifecycle engineering technical support services for the Collins class and supports all current and planned British submarines.
