KPG is attending the Joint Virtual Career Fair with @saintmartinsuniversity, @seattle_pacific and @univpugetsound next Wednesday, October 7, 2020! If you are attending this career fair, we hope to ‘meet’ you! RSVP on @joinhandshake for one of our slots today!
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. Annalynn, KPG’s Project Support Admin, said her and her pup, Maverick, like staying active by attending KPG’s 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.

To help KPG raise money for #foodfrenzy, we kicked off our campaign with an Ice Bucket Fundraiser, where one lucky KPGer would get to dump a bucket of ice water on their head. Congratulations to our Ice Bucket Fundraiser winner, Olivia Paraschiv!! Enjoy this clip of Olivia, who took it up a notch and decided a normal bucket just wasn’t enough. Do you love Olivia’s enthusiasm to raise money for @foodlifeline ? Donate today to celebrate her commitment at https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/kpg2
Meet Ruby the Red Heeler and Stitch the Main Coon; Cheyanne, KPG’s HR Generalist, says: “As much as Ruby and I miss going into the office, we love the ability to work from home too. Both Stitch and Ruby are always right next to my while I’m working, and Stitch has really grown to love me working in his house – as long as I don’t steal the window seat!”
This year, KPG helped sponsor the virtual Puyallup Tribe Walk hosted by Downtown On the Go. Download the free GeoTourist app and join us on this amazing tour (available anytime throughout the year) and learn how the Puyallup Tribe of Indians has interacted with the land and the City of Tacoma throughout the generations.
“Small Town, Real Life” is the motto of this historic river town nestled along the Snoqualmie River. The City of Duvall initially planned to only upgrade the utilities along Main Street. After discussing the project with KPG, the City recognized that in addition to the utility work, they were going to move forward with enhancing the entire corridor.
KPG is having fun in #FoodFrenzy this year by having an Ice Bucket Fundraiser! Each $1 donated counts as one vote, simply add the name of who you are voting for in your donation!

Working from home has taught us one thing, the only thing more important than naps, is meeting deadlines. Erick, one of KPG’s engineers, finds that drinking coffee, listening to music, and taking breaks to play Frisbee with Mooney helps him stay on track. Judy, one of KPG’s Landscape Designers, says making a list of tasks for the day, tidying up the house before bed, and playing ball with Louis helps her stay on track. How do you keep yourself on track in this new working world?
Back in 2006 (left), Siri was one of the first pups to come to work with Amy, one of KPG’s Marketing team members. Now Siri enjoys working from home too (right), but misses walking around and getting treats from KPGers!
KPG is excited to compete in #foodfrenzy this year! Over the next few weeks, we are going to be having fun virtual competitions to help raise money for @foodlifeline, a Seattle-based non-profit. Who else is excited for #KPGFoodFrenzy2020?! Be sure to tag #foodfrenzy & #KPGFoodFrenzy2020 in any of your posts!
When working from home, it is important to remember to still take breaks throughout the day. Matt, one of KPG’s Construction Services Team members, says he is thankful that his dog Gracie never lets him miss a break – “Gracie always brings her ball over to me when it is time to play!” Good job Gracie!
Peanuts Park is the heart of the City of Pasco’s downtown. This re-imagined urban plaza will be the downtown’s primary public open space and home to civic events including the Farmers Market, Food Truck Friday, Cinco De Mayo Festival and the Fiery Foods Festival. Construction begins this fall!

“Being a part of KPG has been one of the most rewarding experiences in both my professional career and personal life. When I joined KPG in 2001, I had high aspirations to make a difference in the surrounding communities of the PNW. Through innovative design solutions and by aligning our design process with community goals, we create public spaces that benefit the social fabric of the community as a whole. I am excited and thankful that the high aspirations I had in 2001 have become an everyday reality. At KPG, we pride ourselves as a company that values its people and the people around us, and that shows in everything we do.”

“When I started at KPG in 1994, we only had a few people and worked together in one large space. It is wonderful to see how that original family culture has continued to thrive as we’ve added over 100 new people, 7 new disciplines, and many more office spaces over the years. I’ve found it extremely gratifying to see our KPG family members grow professionally, both in their skills at creating great projects for our clients, and by providing inspired leadership for the future of KPG. What I love about KPG is that our family-feel is both internal and external – whether we are collaborating on how to build the best holiday office fort, or revitalizing ‘Main Street’ with the communities we serve, we always deliver thoughtful, creative and beautiful spaces for people to enjoy.”

“KPG creativity for me is like a fun dance. The freedom to play with ideas; and listening to teammates and stakeholders (dance partners), to find the right combination that creates something unique and special for each project and place.”
When new KPGers join the family, Joe (KPG Founder), and Paul (VP and Chief Creative Officer), treat the new employees to lunch and give a fun introduction to the history and culture of KPG. We look forward to resuming these when it is safe to gather again! #companyculture #onboarding #traditions #engineering #architecture #design...
“We formed KPG back in 1990 to combine the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture and civil engineering under one roof. We knew if we could pull it off successfully, we would be able to develop more creative, better thought out and well received solutions to the complex challenges that every public works project encounters. Thirty years later I can say our intuition was spot on and we managed to achieve great success. I’m constantly amazed and impressed with the super group of people at KPG who I consider to be family. I’ve always enjoyed the collaborative process we go through in orchestrating successful project pursuits and developing rock-solid visions to guide our designs, but most of all…I’ve enjoyed just hanging out with the people we have here at KPG!”
