Engineering

In addition to the foundation construction services offered by PFI, we also have the capability to serve our customers with engineering design support. From foundation design to full transmission line projects (new or rebuild) we possess the capability and experience in congested urban areas to open right of ways. By maintaining in house engineering services, we can offer true design capabilities. This paired with the history of successful construction project experience and company structure also allows for EPC style services to be offered to our clients.
