KPFFKPFF is a multi-office, multi-disciplinary engineering firm. In Portland since 1974, KPFF’s wide range of civil engineering projects have successfully integrated sustainable strategies such as low-impact development, green streets, pervious pavement and rainwater harvesting. Solutions have been developed that challenge current code, pushing for acceptance of narrower streets and new green infrastructure standards in the Portland metro region. KPFF’s green team pushes initiatives to help staff reduce waste at the office and in business practices.
