Happy National Employee Appreciation Day to all of our KPGers! Whether they are building a holiday lane design (2019), cycling the pipeline trail for a site visit (2019), drawing cats during a virtual talent show (2020), participating in the KPG golf tournament (2020), or representing KPG at an IACC event (2019) - they are always raising the bar with their hard work, humor, and dedication. Our employees are what makes KPG a special place to work and we couldn’t ask for a better group of folks! Looking forward to the day we are all back in the office to celebrate in KPG style!

For over 25 years we have partnered with the City of Tukwila on overlay projects. We have designed overlay projects at various locations throughout the City that focus on pavement repairs, replacement of curb, gutter, sidewalk, and ramps to keep Tukwila’s roads and sidewalks in good shape.

Here’s a sneak peek of KPG’s recently-completed work at the Salmon Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. The renovation and expansion project required extensive modifications to mechanical spaces for new process equipment and controls. KPG also designed a new Laboratory and Administration Building, constructed on top of an existing 75’x 350’ concrete water tank to preserve limited site space. From the conference room in the Lab Office Building, staff can view the tailrace, where clean water is discharged to Puget Sound after passing through the plant’s state of the art tertiary treatment system.
Our Construction Services Team is currently providing construction management and inspection services for the City of Stanwood.

2020 has brought the construction of the long-awaited streetscape project!
