July 25-27, 2018
Last year we partnered with the American Heart Association to raise money for heart and stroke research and education. With your help, the first annual PCS Putt-Putt Tournament raised almost $15,000! That's amazing! 

The American Society of Civil Engineers’ (ASCE) Structural Engineering Institute (SEI) received a Research Grant from the Charles Pankow Foundation in the amount of $150,000, for the development, writing and publishing of ASCE’s SEI Pre-Standard for Performance-Based Design for Wind (Pre-Standard). The Research Grant Agreement was signed on March 15.

The past couple weeks have generated a lot of attention and speculation regarding steel tariffs.  We at PCS Structural Solutions have been monitoring this issue closely, as we want to understand its impact and be able to best support our clients through this uncertainty.

PCS Structural Solutions is proud to announce the opening of its third office in Portland, Oregon. With more than 50 years of experience as a collaboration-focused, single-discipline structural engineering firm based in the Northwest, PCS is excited to better serve its clients in Oregon. The state of Oregon has been increasing its priority of seismic resiliency in education and healthcare facilities—two valued, core components of PCS Structural Solutions’ portfolio.

Elson S. Floyd Cultural Center, named in memoriam for the late visionary president of Washington State University, stands at the campus entrance as a statement of inclusion. It celebrates four underrepresented people groups while creating an environment that melds with the surrounding hills of the Palouse. This building represents so much to so many. Its legacy is far more than the free-form roof. As an alum, this project was special — part homecoming and part awe. What struck home for all of us on the design team was the passing of Dr. Floyd during the design-build selection process.
