Juneau, AK – January 1, 2016 – This new year brings exciting news! PDC Inc. Engineers (PDC) announces it has joined forces with R&M Engineering Inc. located in Juneau, Alaska (R&M Juneau). R&M Juneau is a 17-person firm that offers civil, structural, and geotechnical engineering; as well as survey, special inspections, and materials testing (soils, concrete, and asphalt pavement). Michael Story and Mark Pusich will maintain their leadership positions as Principals and all other staff will continue in their same capacity.
PDC is a 90-person multi-disciplined engineering, planning, and survey firm with office locations in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Palmer, and Soldotna. Combined, the total staff will now reach 107 professionals. By joining forces, R&M Juneau’s client’s will have the benefit of PDC’s additional capabilities with mechanical, electrical, fire protection, and environmental engineering; commissioning; sustainability; and planning/GIS. This is in addition to substantially increasing staff capacity in their traditional disciplines of civil and structural engineering, as well as land survey. PDC airport planning and design, along with our urban transportation expertise will also be an added benefit for our Southeast clients and teaming partners. PDC’s clients will benefit by R&M’s experienced staff, geographic location, as well as adding R&M Juneau’s capabilities in geotechnical engineering, materials testing (soils, concrete, and asphalt pavement), and special inspection services.
The two firms have a long history of teaming together and will continue to build on their solid working relationship to benefit their clients. Over the past two years alone, they have jointly completed design and construction administration services for several notable projects. These include the recently constructed UAS Freshmen Dormitory; the Walter Sobolef Center (aka the Sealaska Heritage Institute Southeast Alaska Native Cultural and Visitor’s Center); as well as the U.S. Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Research Station, Juneau Forestry Sciences Lab (completed as a design/build project).
By adding additional staff capacity and services, this will be a “win-win” for both our clients and our staff. Over the coming weeks, we will be reaching out to our client’s and teaming partners to answer any questions they may have. If you have any immediate questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
