Priefert Complex Designs' personnel have over 40 years combined experience in building design and construction management. Additionally, by utilizing resources from our parent company which offers Priefert Ranch & Rodeo equipment, we gain extensive knowledge of livestock handling in a variety of facilities. The result: our team is uniquely qualified to accept the challenges related to designing facilities specifically related to livestock and equestrian functions. These functions include initial site planning; master planning; architectural layout; stall, arena/equipment layout and design; structural and architectural engineering as well as livestock consulting. Our team has earned these functions by accepting rolls as programmanager, structural engineer of record, design-builder and/or livestock consultant.
Priefert Complex Designs (PCD) combines the architectural and structural expertise of our engineer Glen Calvert with Priefert Ranch & Rodeo's years of experience in equipment for livestock handling. This combination creates a unique set of skills specifically directed to enhance design and functional use of specifically tailored multi-purpose facilities.
