Rehabilitation and Replacement

KC’s structural engineering group consists of our structural engineers who, combined with our civil engineering and surveying professionals, provide extensive capabilities in the rehabilitation and replacement of existing structures and construction of new steel and concrete structures. We have extensive experience in foundation design ranging from conventional spread footings to pile foundations and drilled shafts. We are committed to creative, ingenious solutions that provide our clients with the best possible design services on complex projects.

KC’s design experts are practiced in rehabilitation design and in the design of new bridges, from simple span bridges to complex structures with curved girder design. We utilize a broad range of modern building materials and have developed bridge superstructure and substructure designs for highways, railroads, and light rail applications. KC closely adheres to new building code requirements including all applicable International and State building codes. Our engineers are well versed with changes and updates made to the design requirements for seismic requirements and wind loading standards for building structures.
