Pimara Paul Koehler
Pimara Paul Koehler (PPK) is a structural engineering firm owned by Virginia Loring, an enrolled member of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. Formed in April of 2010, the PPK team brings more than 90 years of combined structural engineering experience to our work.
We use a collaborative approach and work closely with the owner, architect, design and build contractors, and other consultants from the outset. With this approach, we ensure that every structure is completed within budget and meets the needs of all involved.
On all major projects, Pimara Paul Koehler utilizes the most up-to-date software and state-of-the-art equipment for development and analysis, including: Revit® Structure, AutoCAD, 3-D modeling capabilities, ADAPT Structural Concrete Software System, Etabs, and Ramsteel. We share these 3-D models with our partners in order to coordinate designs across disciplines and to generate final fabrication models. This collaborative approach allows us to provide better estimates and verify project completeness.
We are licensed in 49 states to provide structural engineering services and are fully covered with $5 million in E&O insurance.
Each client/project is assigned the personal attention of one of the skilled, experienced principals, and a team which remains involved in the project from beginning to completion. Pimara Paul Koehler provides a standard of satisfying the needs of each client as our primary objective.
