Founded in Perth in 2008, our multi-disciplinary team of 40 people has over 250 years of combined experience. Our growing portfolio of projects covers the engineering spectrum. Since inception, our capabilities have expanded significantly and we are now able to deliver projects with a value in excess of $100 million.
The name Peritas is derived from the Latin word Peritus meaning expert, theologian or consultant. It conveys the innovative philosophy of our engineering consultancy. Originally known as Structural Focus, we changed our name in 2011 to better reflect our progressive culture focused on solutions.

“Our construction business has been using Peritas for our structural engineering services since they were formed in 2008. We have also been associated with the Directors of Peritas for over 20 years. Our experience on the Rand Cold Store facility was typical of all our projects, wherein Peritas services were provided in a professional, responsive and proactive manner.”
Ian Beacham – Director
RICHMOND (WA) PTY LTD
“PS Structures has utilised the services of the Peritas for the structural engineering of a number of our design and construct projects. One project in particular was the Oceaneering Office and Workshop, in which Peritas provided a very efficient structural design. This resulted in savings to both the budget and overall build time.”
Tim House – Project Manager
