Engineering solutions from PWA are based upon a background in the construction industry. We bring schedule, cost, feasibility of fabrication and field construction, to the forefront of all our designs. This blending together of real world construction experience with technical engineering skills is the legacy and hallmark of PWA Engineers Inc.
Since 1976, our clients have sought us out because they want more than academic engineering. Our clients demand that cost and scheduling comparisons be a vital part of all engineering solutions. A general lack of experience and emphasis on cost and time considerations cause most projects to finish over budget and behind schedule. At PWA we emphasize budget and schedule and we have the experience.
At PWA good engineering is more than an exacting science. It is an overall knowledge, a renaissance of the sixth sense relating to balance and, appropriateness, practicality and end use. We like to refer to our experience in construction and engineering design as constructioneering. We have successfully been providing constructioneering over the Western States for over 40-years.
PWA'a team of professionals have provided construction engineering designs for many significant and unique projects. These projects range in nature from deep water bridge construction to forming of complicated shapes and systems for building construction. They include the following specific categories:
- Coffer dams and seals for bridge construction
- Building and Residential design
- Bridge false work support systems
- Trench shoring systems for pipeline construction
- Support systems for HVAC / Mechanical equipment
- Steel forms for intricate shapes and multiple uses
- Sand pile systems for caisson excavation/placement
- Equipment foundation and support systems
In order to help our clients effectively manage their projects PWA maintains a complete computer generated estimating and scheduling system with a nationally recognized data base. We also publish a "Construction Engineering Handbook," currently in its second printing. The following is a representative sample of projects by type and client for which we have provided project management or design services:
