PND's success is founded on our core ability to develop design solutions that are innovative and efficient. Beginning in 1979, the first PND design projects were successful by virtue of our strong working relationships with regional contractors and private-sector businesses in Alaska. Our development of the SPIN FIN™ pile and OPEN CELL™ bulkhead concepts resulted from matching our engineering skills to the realities of construction operations and market needs. This effort to know the construction business, its people, and mindset has been essential to our long-term success.
In the current day, PND continues to provide engineering services to contractors for temporary structures. Known formally as construction engineering, this company skill is simply an application of structural/civil design within the ever-changing and increasingly complex construction environment. The clients served to date include the two largest marine contractors in the United States, supporting work to construct signature span bridges, lock and dam structures, and equally providing service to niche contractors in local/regional markets.
