KPE Celebrates 20-Year Journey to Full-Service Architecture, Engineering, and Forensics Firm
Founded in 2000 by Kevin C. Power, KPE Architecture – Engineering – Forensics (www.kpe-inc.com) started as a small engineering firm specializing in energy-efficient design and modernization of commercial, educational, and industrial facilities. Twenty years later, they are thriving as a full-service architecture, engineering, and forensics firm working in seven states.
In 2007, KPE began providing forensic engineering for insurance-claims and legal industries and realized a unique niche in the local forensics industry that fit them to a T. Because of their relatively small size, KPE also was able to be flexible and take on jobs that other firms could not.
KPE’s forensic engineering experience sets them apart from other architectural engineering firms. Their investigative engineering approach creates an internal culture of cross-trained employees that benefits all projects. KPE investigates hundreds of property-loss claims involving structural deficiencies, envelope defects, water or air infiltration, roof damage, frozen pipes, mold, and more. By investigating construction defects and the design errors of others, they help continually improve the quality of their own designs.
KPE Architecture – Engineering – Forensics is an industry leader in multi-disciplined full-service firms and also provides services in transportation improvements, including railroads, intermodal yards, truck centers, freight terminals, heavy-equipment repair, automotive dealerships, bus bars, and fleet maintenance.
