  • have been associated with KPE on several different projects and scopes of work. Quite simply, we find all KPE employees to do what they say they are going to do, perform work in a thorough, value-added manner, and actively listen to understand the matter at hand. While this may sound simple, it has become increasingly rare in the industry. I hope Hawkins Construction Company continues to have a strong relationship with KPE for many years to come.

  • I have worked with KPE on a number of different projects and have been very pleased with both the quality of their design work as well as their responsiveness. KPE has always made themselves available to answer any and all questions; not only on contracted projects, but going above and beyond to assist with out-of-scope technical advice. KPE continues to meet and exceed the expectations set by our railroad and would be a strong resource to assist any organization with their engineering design work.

  • Major renovation while a facility is fully staffed could be detrimental to daily operations. This has not been the case here at IPERS. The attention to detail by KPE staff has been very good. It’s been a pleasure working on our renovation project with such knowledgeable associates. I would recommend KPE to any entity interested in the Design and Construction Administration Services.
