Jim Collins

Senior Principal

Jim began his career working with his mentor and company founder, Ray Chalker. Ray helped cultivate Jim’s passion and innovative solutions for the renovation of existing buildings with a focus on historic rehabilitation.


Jim has continued Ray’s legacy as he champions adaptive reuse and historic preservation projects for PCS Structural Solutions. He welcomes the challenges and mandatory out-of-the-box thinking that comes with repurposing existing buildings economically without disrupting their historic fabric.


On the weekends, Jim can often be found in the mountains working on his climbing skills and searching out new peaks to summit. Every summer he catches up with his six children and ever-expanding number of grandchildren at the family cabin on Priest Lake, Idaho.
