KPFF Portland was founded in 1974, and since that time the firm has grown in both size and stature. We have built a reputation as creative and innovative engineers who are focused on a high level of client service and excellence in everything we undertake. This strong tradition of client service and excellence is the primary reason that we have experienced significant growth in our professional practice over the last 40 years.
Frequently bestowed as one of America’s most livable cities, Portland secures high rankings due to its strong job market, cheap utilities, and vibrant music scene. As the largest city in Oregon, Portland is also small enough to maintain a strong sense of community and affordable neighborhoods to live in. This creative and entrepreneurial culture attracts many unique and inspiring thinkers that have established niche markets in research, technology, and product design, among others.
KPFF is entrepreneurial at its heart. Our most successful engineers embrace this philosophy and they use it to better themselves and their client relationships.
