KPFF has recognized that there are specialized issues associated with development of some projects, which require unique management and technical skills. The KPFF Special Projects Division was established to directly address these concerns with a unique combination of focused dedication to successful delivery via specialized project managers, a highly qualified technical staff, and a predisposition to think and act innovatively. We have offices in Seattle, Tacoma, and Long Beach to provide efficient client service. Our Seattle Special Projects office was established in 1996.
I came to Special Projects to accomplish waterfront projects where the technical and operational demands required creative solutions. However, even while accomplishing some really great projects, I've learned that the true draw of my career is the incredible people – both clients and staff - that we are so fortunate to interact with every day. These relationships energize and drive me, and I believe it shows in our work product, our culture and the satisfaction our clients get when we totally exceed their expectations.
