Founded in 1985 as a fire protection engineering firm, PDI provides a full spectrum of fire protection engineering services including sprinkler and fire alarm design, fire and smoke modeling, and performance-based designs offering innovative solutions to complex fire and life-safety challenges. In addition, PDI provides consulting services for fire, building, and life-safety code compliance, including plans review and the issuance of commodity letters. PDI also provides government third-party plan review services on behalf of local, state, and federal agencies. In addition to its engineering and consulting services, PDI, through its Permitting Section, assists its clients in negotiating the complex permitting process, managing that process from initial application, through all necessary inspections, to final Certificate-of-Occupancy.
In 2017, PDI began executing a strategic plan to expand its services, including PDI Rail. First, PDI is broadening its legacy professional engineering and consulting services into the oil, gas, chemical, power generation, and other critical-infrastructure industries. Second, PDI is growing internationally with initial emphasis on Western Europe, the United Kingdom, Poland, and other Eastern European countries.
In June 2009, PDI expanded its commitment to the rail / transit consulting business by launching a new, dedicated division, aimed specifically at that industry. That division is called PDI Rail Solutions.
