2nd Annual PCS Structural Solutions Putt-Putt Golf Tournament
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. 

Please join PCS Structural Solutions in welcoming their newest staff members: Paige Jones, Ellen Williams, Shadow Woodfork, Hai Lin, Chris Jeseritz, Sunny Siddhu, Sharon Mika Sweney, Bryce Floyd, Steven Farmer Jr., Marv Fucal, Katya Finegold, Hee Jin Byun, and Daniel Hollar.
Paige Jones joins PCS as the Human Resources Manager in the Tacoma office. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications and Business from Washington State University and has over 20 years of HR experience in the construction, financial, and healthcare industries.

The WSU Elson S. Floyd Cultural Center is the recipient of a 2018 ACEC Washington Engineering Excellence Silver Award for Complexity. The Engineering Excellence Awards aim to recognize and elevate noteworthy engineering achievements by design teams in Washington State.

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.

"What's cool about structural engineering?"
