KFW Engineers & Surveying is organized around three major branches – Residential Development, Commercial Development and Public Sector. We offer comprehensive services in each sector. Our expertise spans the life of each project from concept to final acceptance so you will enjoy excellent continuity on your project.
KFW is an energetic and nimble firm that embraces the latest technologies to improve our project delivery. We are always on the lookout for newer technological advances that add value for our clients.
For example, we have an extensive GIS database and we are running the latest version of ArcGIS. This improves project site selection and planning. We also use Civil 3D with Building Information Modeling (BIM) which streamlines the project design phase. This software is an excellent tool to provide photo-realistic visualizations at client and stakeholder meetings. KFW stays on the forefront of the latest Low Impact Development (LID) technologies and we have experience installing the newest TCEQ-approved BMP’s. Each KFW survey party is equipped with Leica GPS and robotic Total Stations for the best speed and accuracy. This equipment reduces both field time and office analyzation processes on all of our land surveying work.
Our Land Surveyors are licensed in California, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, West Virgina and Pennsylvania.

KFW Engineers & Surveying utilizes GIS tools to generate reports, databases, and online services to help with planning and design implementation for Residential Development, Commercial Development, and Government Services. The GIS Department uses ArcGIS to populate and illustrate city, county, state and, federal datasets. The GIS department uses ArcServer to showcase several different data sets online allowing the user to gather information about a parcel of land and make informed decisions. KFW Engineers uses GIS software along with AutoCAD to provide support for all engineering projects from site selection and data gathering to construction management and final data as-builts.
