Priefert Complex Designs (PCD) was founded to provide sound, practical design services for livestock related projects in an effort to offer solutions before complex issues become a problem. From fairgrounds to equestrian facilities, from riding arenas to complete rodeo facilities, for private ownership, municipalities, colleges and universities, PCD delivers valuable insight into key design phases for construction projects of all sizes. Combining the practical experience of the many professionals from Priefert Ranch and Rodeo Equipment with the extensive, hands-on experience of Architectural Engineer Glen Calvert, Priefert Complex Designs has the ability to bring together a unique set of talents. While applying extensive knowledge of engineering principles with the design of your project, PCD incorporates critical understanding of livestock flow and confinement that helps ensure a safe environment for animals, participants and spectators.
With the field of architectural engineering being a collaborative one, PCD often works closely with architects to design buildings that reflect owners' visions. Where the aesthetics of design in a structure are addressed by architects, PCD has the experience to create the functional aspects. We solve potential problems regarding livestock flow before construction begins. By incorporating the ranch and rodeo livestock experience of key personnel at Priefert Manufacturing, we can focus on livestock movement and how it relates people. Such insight benefits projects by creating versatility; a key element in maximizing costs and efficiencies. Utilizing our resources results in sound planning that becomes highly valuable as owners seek to complete projects on time and within budget. As the architectural engineer, PCD takes primary responsibility for coordinating building systems with the needs of livestock to make sure projects are designed and built safely, practically and economically.
