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.
For creation of a comprehensive assessment from the applicable
area relevant to a variety of factors including, but not limited to:
demographics, traffic flow, facility type, construction cost, revenues and
Analysis of Project Program
Utilizing various available data to determine the achievability of a successful venue for the intended purpose.
Evaluation of prospective site(s) in relation to the proposed development, economic and environmental impact, project budget and schedule - an essential for a cost effective, rational approach to project development.
Schematic Design and the Preliminary Cost Estimate
Drawings based upon compilation of initial information to create of a conceptual representation of the project - the first look clients see of the project taking form with initial projected costs.
Integration of livestock and multi-purpose use with preliminary drawings and other documents to more clearly define design concepts in terms of architectural, electrical, mechanical and structural systems.
Responsible for planning and management of multiple duties associated with contractors and consultants, design documents, project schedules, code compliance and budgeting.
A critical point on which an entire project may hinge. Accurate forecasting of the cost in order to create a realistic expectation of actual bids.
Structural and Architectural Engineering
Where function meets design. The application of professional analysis, engineering principles, technology and creative design ensures the creation of buildings which are animal friendly and people safe.
Creation of specifications and scope of services required to screen and accept qualified bidders under specific terms and conditions.
Oversight of the construction activities and project management to ensure the contractor's compliance with project plans and specifications and review of the work in place to recommend appropriate payments as the work progresses.
