KPFF Civil + Survey


KPFFKPFF is a creative team that provides civil engineering, structural engineering, and surveying services. In Portland since 1974, KPFF’s civil engineering projects integrate sustainable strategies such as low-impact development, green streets facilities, and rainwater harvesting. Solutions continually challenge current code, pushing for acceptance of narrower streets and new green infrastructure standards in the Portland metro region. Surveyors use the latest technology (drones, 3D scanners, GIS) to reduce paper and promote collaboration. KPFF’s green team meets regularly and pushes initiatives to inform staff on small changes that can make big impacts at the office and at home.
