Our Story

PES was founded in Atlanta in 1988, and since then, we have worked in close partnership with architects, developers, design-builders, general contractors, institutions and government agencies to develop long-term relationships with our clients.

We have experienced steady growth since our formation, which is directly attributable to client loyalty and repeat business. PES is one of the largest single discipline structural engineering firms on the east coast, with offices in Atlanta, GA and Hartford, CT.

Austin Lucas, E.I.T.

Design Engineer

Born in Edmonton, Alberta, Austin moved to Johns Creek at the age of five. He recently graduated from Kennesaw State University, earning his bachelor’s in Civil Engineering, and will pursue his master’s degree. He worked mostly in steel design while in school, was on the Dean’s list three times, and the President’s list once in the last two years.

He’s excited to work at PES, where he can improve as an engineer and learn as much as he can. When he’s not working, Austin enjoys playing hockey, rugby, fishing, and wants to get into motorcycles.

Fun Fact: He has a sulfur-headed moray eel as a pet, which lives in a tank he designed and built from scratch.

David Greenwood, P.E.

Project Manager

Although David comes from a family of engineers, it was his interest in the design process of building construction projects that really pulled him into the engineering profession.

What he enjoys most about his role at PES is how he can balance the engineering work with the customer service aspect of his role as a Project Manager. David often works with architects and contractors and relishes the opportunity to assist them through the engineering process with as much ease as possible.

Regardless of the type of project, rest assured David is always interested in finding the best solution for whatever challenge each project presents.

Fun Fact: He is the standing 2001 District 5, Publix bagging champion – undisputed and undefeated!

Daysiry Rodriguez

Design Engineer

While growing up in the Dominican Republic, Daysiry used to tell her mom that one day she would design a big building for children without homes. This love for helping others coupled with her curiosity to learn and challenge herself drove her passion for civil engineering.

Daysiry attended the Florida Institute of Technology, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering followed by her master’s in Structural Design. After college, she did not understand how important it is to be in a healthy and balanced work environment. The diversity, community outreach, and the company’s mission to provide the best service not only to its clients but to its employees are what drew her to join PES.

In the future, Daysiry would like to obtain her P.E. license and be a part of the leadership at The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), where she could encourage more women to be a part of the engineering industry.

When she is not working, Daysiry enjoys hiking, traveling, reading, and finding new places to eat!

Fun Fact: Traveling since she was seven years old, Daysiry recently traveled to Cusco, Peru, where she taught English to low-income children for a week and had the opportunity to travel to amazing scenic places including Rainbow Mountain, which sits at 17,000 feet above sea level and takes up to five hours to hike one way.
