Washington University in St. Louis + KPFF Consulting Engineers

The History...

When the founding Principals of KPFF’s St. Louis office opened the doors in 2002, they brought with them a long-standing relationship with Washington University in St. Louis. Since then, KPFF has successfully completed dozens of projects on the University’s campus. 

KPFF has developed a unique understanding of the campus, its buildings, and its history, as well as the University’s distinct Collegiate Gothic style that requires sophisticated engineering solutions that are appropriate, cost-effective, and achievable.

East Campus Development...

Currently, KPFF is working on six structures on the East Campus Development, including Weil and McKelvey Halls, which are academic buildings; an addition to the Kemper Art Museum; a new Welcome Center; a new foodservice, meeting facility, and transportation center known as The Hub; and an 800-car underground parking structure, which is featured in this article:
