R&M Engineering and PDC Inc. Engineers combine

R&M Engineering announced on Jan. 1 it joined PDC Inc. Engineers. In a statement, R&M indicated this will offer their clients expanded services and capacity while still maintaining the same staff the community has become familiar with.

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 reach 107. By joining forces, R&M Juneau’s clients will be able to access PDC’s additional capabilities with mechanical, electrical, fire protection and environmental engineering, as well as 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 is also experienced with airport planning and design, and urban transportation.

PDC’s clients will benefit by R&M Juneau’s experienced staff, geographic location, as well as adding their capabilities in geotechnical engineering, materials testing (soils, concrete and asphalt pavement) and special inspection services.

The two firms have a long history of working together. Over the past two years, they have jointly completed design and construction administration services for several notable projects, such as the recently constructed University of Alaska Southeast’s freshmen dormitory and the Walter Sobolef Center, as well as the U.S. Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Research Station and Juneau Forestry Sciences Lab (completed as a design/build project).
