Since the 1930s, KLJ has worked alongside communities and clients of all sizes; partnering with cities, counties, and developers — just to name a few. At KLJ, we plan, design, and support infrastructure across the country such as roads, runways, pipelines, and parks.

We do this by focusing on a business model that puts the customer first, providing an exceptional experience that truly reimagines what projects can become. KLJ has office locations that span several states and cities, but that doesn’t mean we only work from those locations.
