The PEEP Committee is excited to announce their Student Award program for RCOP & ICCRE! You can still sign up!



PEEP was started with a grant from the Permafrost Technology Foundation (PTF). The USPA appreciates their major contribution to this project. To learn more about the history of the PTF, find relevant PTF reports, and to see PTF technical manuals, follow the link below.

Permafrost Technology Foundation


The USPA created PEEP as an educational initiative in 2009, to promote engineering education and outreach for permafrost and cold regions engineering related issues. PEEP addresses the sustaining need for practical engineering solutions related to buildings, roads, and other infrastructure in Alaska and Arctic Regions. It continues the successful legacy started by the Permafrost Technology Foundation in its focus of providing permafrost engineering solutions and standards in the public domain.
