Our Story

Charles Braun Sr. founded Industrial Contractors Inc. in 1964 as a general and mechanical contracting company. In 1972, Professional Consultants Inc. was formed as an affiliate engineering and architecture company to support Industrial Contractors with their projects. Over the years, Professional Consultants began to provide design services directly to local and regional clients and became better known as PCI. In 2011 PCI was acquired by Skanska USA Civil, now known as PCI Skanska, and has grown into a national full-service engineering, architecture, construction and consulting solutions firm based in Evansville, Indiana. Nearly 50 years since our inception, our strengths lie in a wide range of industries, and our construction experience strengthens our ability to provide best value customized solutions that support the success of our clients.
