Our integrated mindset benefits projects, clients, teams, communities, employees, and families; it's how we revolutionize the way structures are designed and built. 

LET'S CREATE TOGETHER

STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING

Since our inception, we have crafted the art of adding value to the traditional approach of consulting engineering.  Our differentiators in delivery are collaborative and project centric, facilitating a more engaging design process.  Our expertise is unparalleled and is the bridge to all project types, all materials and construction techniques, and all delivery methods.  Our reliability in outcome is un-matched, our creativity is enticing, and our technical advancements in the industry will bring you back for more.

CIVIL ENGINEERING

KL&A uses a “FIELD-TO-FINISH” approach for the civil engineering on projects.  This involves the engineer being on the survey crew which performs the preconstruction site survey.  This approach has proven very beneficial as the engineer gains a very in-depth understanding of the site while performing the survey.  It also ensures all data needed for the design is collected.  The engineer will then transition into preparing the plans with an immediate understanding of the site and the ability to recognize potential conflicts before the design begins.  The engineer then proceeds into the roles of construction administration to complete the project.

Land Surveying

KL&A has FAA-licensed pilots for using an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS), A.K.A. drone, to collect high-resolution images and videos.  Data from these aerial surveys are used on a wide variety of applications for capturing the existing conditions at a project site.  KL&A has found aerial surveys to provide an enhanced product for our clients.

Aerial Surveys

  • General aerial video and photography

  • Base mapping

    • Georeferenced Orthophoto with associated coordinate world file

    • Topographic contours

  • Volumetric calculations for material stockpiles

KL&A can provide an array of services to the energy sectors.  Our staff of engineers and land surveyors have experience working with oil, gas, and coal companies in the permitting and construction of their projects.  These services have included:

  • State of Wyoming and Federal Well Pad Application Packets

    • Well Plats

    • Well Pad Designs

    • Well Pad Access Road Design

    • Well Pad Reclamation Design

  • As-built Surveys of Existing Infrastructure

  • Staking New Infrastructure

  • Staking Well Pads

  • Staking Pipeline Corridors

  • Staking Road Corridors

  • Subsidence Studies

  • Design of Secondary Containment Areas

Steel Detailing

Integration is our mindset. We are project centric virtual builders, combining steel detailing and high collaboration to achieve project successes faster, cheaper, and more creatively than the competition. We are experts translating design into buildable 3-D fabrication and erection models, capturing the simple and driving the complex.

We have a strong portfolio of work, capturing simple structures to the exceptionally complex. We detail for many fabricators as well as to support our in-house construction work.

Mass Timber

Since the early 2000s, KL&A has seen mass timber as a key component of design strategies to minimize embodied carbon and reduce construction time while delivering architecturally stunning buildings. We have accordingly organized our practice to be the premier structural designer of mass timber in the Rocky Mountain Region. KL&A’s history with heavy timber structures started with our very first project and has continued to this day. Since about 2010, that practice has included the innovative new materials and systems known as mass timber construction.

Embodied Carbon &

Life Cycle Assessments

In 2019, KL&A created a team of engineers focused on the environmental impact of our structures. KL&A is a signatory to the SE2050 Challenge and is devoted to reducing the embodied carbon in the built environment. We offer Structural Life Cycle Assessment, Embodied Carbon Impact Reports, Embodied Carbon education, material salvage and deconstruction consulting, and mass timber design.
