Sirko Associates, Inc. was established
in May, 1985 to provide engineering and drafting consultation
services in the specialty engineering area of precast concrete
engineering and plant support.
Since our beginning, representatives from Sirko
Associates, Inc. have served the precast concrete industry
through the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute and other
organizations. Our involvement has included committee service
and leadership, publication reviews, and financial and advisory
committee support of research projects. The engineering, detailing
and project management teams at Sirko Associates, Inc. have
experience with a variety of precast/prestressed concrete
construction types including: structural, architectural, cast
stone, bridges, and underground structures. Other services
include forensic analysis, expert witness and repair recommendations.
Sirko Associates personnel have helped a number of precast concrete producers
start CAD departments by providing turnkey hardware, software
and training packages to neophyte users.
In 1990, Sirko Associates founded CAD-1, an
Autodesk Authorized Reseller and Premier Authorized Training
Center to serve the specialized automation needs of architects,
engineers and the construction industry. Since its start,
CAD-1 has received an unprecedented number of national Autodesk
sales, training, facilities and customer support awards.
In 1993, Sirko Associates released AutoCAST®/HardCOUNT®.
This software was developed as a supplement to the industry
standard AutoCAD® software. AutoCAST was developed to
help standardize the precast drawing industry with productivity
tools and to provide many precast concrete related symbol
libraries as a time saver and efficiency improvement tool
for the industry. HardCOUNT is an automated material counting
software that uses extended data contained within precast
concrete drawings to generate lists of materials for
production, foundations, and erector use.
Sirko engineering has touched over 1000 projects.
Make yours the next one!
