PND Engineers announced two new Alaska-registered professional civil engineers: Nathan Harris and Logan Imlach. Both are University of Alaska Anchorage graduates and received their PE designations in December. Harris joined PND in in September 2015, shortly after receiving his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering. Since then, he has gained significant experience in transportation design, estimating, heavy civil construction inspection and contract administration. He worked previously for the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, first as an intern and then as an engineering assistant. Imlach joined PND in August 2018 and has performed structural design primarily on marine and oil and gas industry projects, including North Slope construction. Imlach’s previous work with other Alaska engineering firms ranged from small civil projects to project management during the construction of two extended reach drilling rigs on the Slope, and planning, permitting and designing both gravel and paved roads. Logan received his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering in 2010.
