The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) has hired Timothy Cullen as the director of technical activities. Cullen will be responsible for technical activities for developing and disseminating the PCI Body of Knowledge necessary for designing, fabricating, and constructing precast concrete structures.

“I’m very excited to join PCI,” Cullen says. “I look forward to working with other technical leaders in the institute, industry consultants, and volunteers to provide guidance and perspective on major technical issues confronting the industry and enhancing the PCI Body of Knowledge.”

Cullen has more than 14 years of experience in the design, detailing, construction, maintenance, and renovation of precast and prestressed concrete structures. Before joining PCI, he was vice president of Blue Ridge Design, a structural engineering consulting firm in Winchester, Va., and was previously a design engineer with High Concrete Group in Denver, Pa.

As an active member of PCI, Cullen has been a voting member on the Industry Handbook and Joint and Connection Design Committees and a member of the Blue Ribbon Review Team for the Eighth Edition of the PCI Design Handbook: Precast and Prestressed Concrete.

Cullen attended Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa., where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering and a Master of Science degree in structural engineering. He is a licensed professional engineer in 14 states and Washington D.C.
