A successful project starts with a solid plan. PDC’s team of transportation, land use, and environmental planners bring knowledge, expertise, and creative thinking to every one of our projects. Planning at any level is a complex undertaking, particularly in Alaska where extreme conditions, costs, and distances require innovative yet practical solutions. From airport master plans to Safe Routes to Schools, we deliver plans that are tailored to your project and help bring your vision to life.
Aviation planning in Alaska requires a team of planners with technical expertise, a thorough understanding of FAA policies, and Alaska-specific experience. From small GA facilities to international airports, PDC planners have worked across the spectrum.
Making walking and biking an integral part of everyday life can be challenging in Alaska. Our planners understand these difficulties and tailor our approach to a client’s situation to ensure practical, implementable plans that encourage active transportation and enhance cyclist and pedestrian safety.
From multi-modal municipal transportation plans to solid waste management, PDC planners take a holistic approach to master planning that considers regional, local, and client concerns. Using proven public engagement tools, GIS technology, and robust forecasting techniques, we excel at reaching consensus on the path forward.
PDC’s planning staff supports municipal planning agencies with long-term comprehensive planning work, including socioeconomic forecasting, public engagement, project management, map making, transportation analysis, document preparation, graphics, and agency coordination.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a planning process that utilizes dynamic 3D models to provide project members the opportunity to more efficiently plan/design the development and management of new structures. Utilizing the latest software and technology, PDC Engineers is proud to offer a full range of BIM services including BIM project planning, 3D modeling, point cloud conversions, virtual reality environments, and BIM consulting.
PDC employs BIM to integrate a 3D architectural model with structural, mechanical, and electrical elements to communicate and confirm design intent with stakeholders and contractors, allowing users to visualize the completed facility before breaking ground.
This data driven approach to information sharing and collaboration promotes efficiency, saving project time while allowing for the accommodation of complex designs and shorter construction schedules.
