Big thank you to our client, Architects Alaska, for sharing this rendering (left) of the Louden Community center, due for completion at the end of the summer.

The multipurpose center will provide the residents of Galena, Alaska a tribal gathering place to meet and share food. The building includes meeting space, a kitchen, and offices. PDC was happy to take on this project bringing structural, civil, mechanical, and electrical disciplines up to bat.

What a year full of change it has been.

For PDC, 2020 started with the opening of a new combined office location in Juneau, AK, then a dramatic shift in work environment due to COVID-19, followed by another big change as we joined the RESPEC family.

We said farewell to some long time friends and hello to many new faces. There have been promotions, advancements, and awards. Projects begun and closed out. Introductions made with new partnerships and friendships following close behind.

Though this year was marred by difficulty and uncertainty, amazing work still took place. We're grateful for our time with clients and for the trust you continued to put in us.

As 2021 quickly approaches, we look forward to the new year and to continuing to Transform your Challenges into Solutions.

From all of us at PDC, have a safe and happy New Year.

In celebration of the holidays, our offices will be closed statewide for the week of Christmas.

For clients needing immediate assistance, please reach out to PDC project managers directly via email or cell.

From our family to yours, we wish you a safe and Merry Christmas.

So important! Stay safe this holiday season and check your outlets.

So important! Stay safe this holiday season and check your outlets.

Before you set up that illuminated snowman this year, take a note from our senior fire protection engineer, Christine Ness. Check all your outside outlets and consider having a qualified electrician check "suspect" outlets that may look damaged.

Look carefully for char around outlets that might look like dust, loose connections which can cause arcing and fire, rust or any evidence of moisture entry and damage. Don't forget to look for critter damage too so something like this doesn't happen to you or your family.

The PDC Juneau office certainly got into the spirit this past Saturday. The Mendenhall Mall hosted a "Trunk-or-Treat" event where community members could decorate a trunk and give out candy in the parking lot. Businesses from the Mall also setup tables inside the building to give out candy. There were over 750 kids in participation!

Way to show your community you care, Fairbanks office!

Our Interior team has been doing a great job over the past couple weeks gathering food for the local food bank. Due to recent increases in unemployment and school closures from COVID-19, it was sorely needed.

Special thank to civil engineer, Brandon Irvine (pictured here), for all your work in pulling the effort together and to everyone else who donated!
