The PT&C History
PT&C was founded in 1982 by Gene Brooks. Working for a building contractor right out of college, Brooks saw a gap between the design expertise of the architect and the construction expertise of the builder. One knew how to design a building and the other knew how to build it. Yet in between there was an unmet need for someone who would neither design nor build the building but could map the smartest path from design to finished product. There was a need for someone to design the process by which the building was built, applying the principles of engineering to design a construction process that was efficient, expeditious, and profitable.
PT&C first made its name designing those processes for large hotel construction projects, but the company soon graduated to even more formidable undertakings. Today, PT&C designs and manages the process for major public works programs undertaken by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. We design and manage environmental remediation programs and nuclear power plant construction projects for the Department of Energy. Our clients include the U.S. Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard, the Department of State, the FAA, the Federal Highway Administration, and many more federal agencies. Major corporations and other nations’ businesses and agencies also trust PT&C to control the scope, schedule and cost of their most vital projects and programs, bringing them to completion on time and within budget.
Cost Engineering and Program Management Combines with Forensic Consulting
With the addition, in 2004, of PT&C Forensic Consulting Services, P.A., we are able to apply engineering expertise not only to designing processes that go right, but to investigating and determining the cause when things go wrong. PT&C's forensic engineers were first on the ground in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, enabling major insurance companies to make swift and accurate determinations on cause of damage despite the chaos on the scene. Our forensic engineers' courage and cool heads have led major insurers such as Allstate, Chartis and QBE First to put PT&C on their preferred list of forensic engineering firms.
The integration of PT&C's Cost Engineering and Forensic Consulting services allows each division to provide greater value to our clients. Our forensic consultants are able to draw on the expertise of our engineers in their investigations and when determining costs of repair and replacement. And our cost engineers are able to draw on the expertise of our forensic consultants to proactively address future potential liability issues. Both practice areas enjoy the collaboration, and our clients benefit from the broad scope of expertise PT&C is able to apply to their needs.
Working with our clients around the world, the people of PT&C demonstrate daily that they are the best in the business. So it should come as no surprise that PT&C engineers have earned many of the highest certifications and won many of the most prestigious awards in their fields.
Throughout PT&C, we pride ourselves on our integrity, our commitment to professionalism and expertise, and on our obsessive dedication to getting it right. That's why more than 90% of our clients remain our clients. We're not in this for any quick, windfall profits. We build long-term relationships with our clients through giving them our very best every single time. We'd like to do the same for you.
