Cross Park, a newly opened public space in Pierce County, is one of the first parks in the Fredrickson area. Nate Mozer, KPG’s Professional Services Manager, helped lead the civil elements for this project. “We were subs for HBB, and designed the underground utilities, lighting, and focused on the frontage improvement. The best part about this project has been being part of the team that brings this unique facility to the area.” Have you visited yet?
Liz Gibson, KPG’s Landscape and Urban Design Department Manager, loves going on outdoor adventures and long walks with her Labradors, Vincent and Oliver.

To all of our veterans – we thank you for your sacrifice, bravery, and the example you set for us all. Happy Veterans Day!

While working from home we like to remind ourselves to stay active. One way we do that is by having a KPG Yoga Session on Fridays.

Alexa, KPG’s Documentation Specialist, said her dogs Jobin and Dale will stare at her while they count down the minutes until the next break to take a walk to the park.
