Excellence is at the heart of our culture: Consistently exceeding expectations allows us to continue to build enduring relationships with our clients and our employees.

At KPFF we recognize how fortunate we are to have the resources available to maintain our thriving practice and provide an excellent quality of life for our employees. We take corporate social responsibility seriously, and actively look for ways to improve the communities where we live and work, minimize our environmental footprint, and promote inclusion throughout our firm. While each of our KPFF locations develop and practice their own programs, they are united by our Core Values of Excellence, Trust, Relationships, Stability and Passion…the foundation for everything we do at KPFF.

Community and Charitable Contributions

KPFF is committed to the communities in which we design and live. We contribute both through financial sponsorships and with the donation of the time and talent of our employees to many organizations. We aid through monetary donations, volunteer hours, and pro-bono engineering. Our employees work with numerous organizations including: Engineers without Borders, ACE Mentorship program, YWCA, Bridges to Prosperity, Rebuilding Together, United Way, American Lung Association, Habitat for Humanity, American Heart Association, local food banks, and countless other non-profit organizations throughout the U.S. and abroad.

Sustainability and Environmental Responsibility

As a leader in sustainable design, KPFF takes our commitment to environmental stewardship seriously. Firm-wide, we have over 60 LEED Accredited engineers and have completed over 450 LEED Certified projects. Whether project related or within our office environments, our dedication to incorporating sustainable design features and preserving valuable natural resources remains constant. Some of the ongoing practices we have implemented to reduce our environmental impact include electronic filing systems to reduce paper use, incorporation of recycled and renewable materials in our specifications, and repurposing plotter trimmings into notepads. Our offices are stocked with reusable flatware, dishes, glasses and mugs. Many of our locations encourage employees to use public transit and active transportation, often subsidizing monthly transit passes and bicycle parking.

Advancement of Disadvantaged, Women/Minority Owned and Small Businesses

KPFF strongly believes in the need to increase DBE, MWBE and SMB contracting in the AEC industry and welcomes opportunities to partner with these firms. Some KPFF offices also promote a mentorship strategy that emphasizes communication and helps mentees develop their expertise and capacity. KPFF understands that small businesses may not have the resources including administrative staff and software that are beneficial to a large design and construction project. We continually seek Certified Businesses providing services in Engineering and/or Architectural Design to partner with. If you qualify, we would love to hear from you. Please submit a letter of interest, qualifications, disciplines provided and geographic area of your practice (not to exceed 2 pages) to smallbusiness@kpff.com.

Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
We are all unique. KPFF has created a culture that embraces its employees’ differences, strengths, interests, and backgrounds making the workplace environment a supportive, collaborative and just plain fun place to be each day. We believe that diversity of thought achieves better outcomes. We continually engage in training programs and workshops at all levels to not only educate ourselves but to be better partners to our clients and project teams. KPFF is committed to continued diversity and inclusion. We are one family.
ARUP
London, United Kingdom
Engineering
In 1946, philosopher and engineer Ove Arup set up his consulting engineering business in London. In the more than 70 years since then, Arup has grown into an international consulting firm of worldwide scope and reach.

Right from the start, Arup was known for its close collaborations with leading architects like Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers and Norman Foster. In its first two decades, the firm expanded rapidly and earned a reputation for creative and economical solutions across the built environment – a reputation it still enjoys today.

By 1976, Arup’s reputation had become truly global with the completion of the Sydney Opera House. By this time, the firm had opened offices in Northern Europe, Southern Africa, South East Asia and Australia. Its breadth of expertise was already considerable: this ranged from offshore engineering, acoustics, facades, and specialist skills such as impact, blast, risk and seismic engineering, to niche areas such as designing transportation containers for nuclear waste.

The firm’s portfolio of products and services today is even more wide-ranging. Many of the world’s most iconic sports stadia are Arup projects – such as Beijing’s Water Cube, the Singapore Sports Hub and London Aquatics Centre. Arup is trusted to develop vital new infrastructure, like the Second Avenue Subway or the Queensferry Bridge Crossing.

We’re collaborating on the development of the Hyperloop rapid transit system. Our range of computer modelling tools like MassMotion enable better decision making and more insightful design choices. Our virtual listening environment SoundLab facilitates better outcomes by letting clients hear the sound of spaces – before they are actually built.

Clients continue to come to Arup because of the way we think and do. Increasingly diverse projects bring innovations and leaps of imagination that benefit our clients and the environments in which we all live and work. We call this ‘shaping a better world’
Herman Miller

Products, Furniture
Herman Miller is a 100-year-old-plus company that places great importance on design, the environment, community service, and the health and well-being of our customers and our employees. Innovative ways to improve the performance of our customers’ organizations have become our hallmark.

Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him.

By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with “modern” furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.

Since then, we’ve collaborated with some of the most outstanding designers in the world, including Alexander Girard, Isamu Noguchi, Robert Propst, Bill Stumpf, Don Chadwick, Ayse Birsel, Studio 7.5, Yves Béhar, Doug Ball, and many talented others.

Today, in addition to our classic pieces and new designs for the home, Herman Miller is a recognized innovator in contemporary interior furnishings, solutions for healthcare environments, and related technologies and services. A publicly held company headquartered in Zeeland, Michigan, we have manufacturing facilities in the United States, China, Italy, and the United Kingdom and sales offices, dealers, licensees, and customers in over 100 countries.

We operate through several focused businesses, brands, and distribution channels, including Herman Miller, Herman Miller Healthcare, Nemschoff, Geiger International, and independently owned dealerships. All of them work to design and build a better world around you.

Bernhardt Design

Bernhardt Furniture Company was founded in 1889 by John M. Bernhardt. Orphaned at 13, John Bernhardt left for Oregon to become a government surveyor but returned home three years later to pursue a career as a logger and timber cutter. After buying a sawmill, he saw an opportunity to use timber in the manufacture of sturdy oak bedroom furniture. The company he started quickly found a market in such urban centers as Chicago and New York City. As the business grew under the leadership of the Bernhardt family, new product categories, dining room and living room furniture were added and additional facilities were built or purchased from other furniture manufacturers.

As the business grew under the leadership of the Bernhardt family, new product categories, dining room and living room furniture were added and additional facilities were built or purchased from other furniture manufacturers.

Until the 1980’s, the company was vertically integrated, having a veneer mill, lumber yard and numerous kilns as well as adhesives and particleboard plants. By 1981, in order to diversify the product offering, Bernhardt began sourcing globally and now has offices in four Asian countries, staffed with 50 employees to ensure the quality for which Bernhardt is known. However, the company still has a significant manufacturing operation in western North Carolina, with 12 facilities and 1500 skilled employees.

In 1983, Bernhardt Furniture added a line of commercial furniture, Bernhardt Design, manufacturing quality conservatively styled casegoods, conference and occasional tables, guest, lounge and wood guest chairs for the corporate and legal markets. Gradually, the product line expanded stylistically, adding more contemporary products and multi-purpose tables and seating and conference chairs.

In order to encourage student designers to make their products suitable for mass markets, Bernhardt Design sponsors an interdisciplinary course with the world-renowned Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Students who excel in the program have their products included in Bernhardt’s standard product line.

Bernhardt Design also sponsors ICFF Studio, a scholarship program which gives deserving designers global exposure to manufacturers, retailers and the media

Bernhardt Design markets to the architectural and design communities and is known for its excellence in design, winning many awards through the years. Our products are sold globally through sales representatives and selected dealers. The 20,000 sq. ft. flagship showroom is located on Madison Avenue in New York City.
