Giving Back + Paying It Forward = Community Support

We are proud supporters of many local charities and appreciate the opportunity to give back and pay it forward. Organizations that make a difference provide us the opportunities to support them in different ways – financially, in-kind donations, and participation. 


The CANstruction Citywide Competition, where A/E/C industry professionals compete building structures made of full cans of food, was held at Arrowhead Towne Center in 2022. Over 30,000 cans were donated to St. Mary’s Food Bank, with additional donations for People’s Choice raising $9,100.

PK Associates teamed up with Gensler, Holder, and Forward Tilt to create The Giving Tree.

Thank you to AIA Phoenix Metro Chapter for organizing yet another fantastic event. We are proud to have taken part in this event since 2011 and cannot wait for next year’s competition!

ACE Mentor Program

PKA is proud to have two Structural Engineer mentors participating in the ACE Mentor Program Phoenix Affiliate in 2023.

The program engages and excites local students to pursue careers in architecture, engineering, and construction through mentoring and supporting their continued advancement in the industry.

The participants experience a mock project that begins with site selection and ends with a final presentation to a panel for award, emulating an actual design pursuit. Numerous scholarship opportunities are available to participating students.
