KPFF's engineers practice with a minimum of organizational restriction. This allows us to work directly and independently with our clients, while drawing upon the resources of other professionals in the firm.
KPFF's Seattle office is home to approximately 200 employees, organized into three engineering groups: Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering, and Bridge/Waterfront Engineering. These disciplines are complemented by CAD drafting, marketing, graphics and administrative staff.
Located in the heart of downtown Seattle, we offer an exciting work environment and easy access to the many amenities that make Seattle one of the most livable cities in the United States.
