Our Philosophy

Helping people succeed—both our clients and our staff—is what we do best at Kimley-Horn. As one of the nation’s premier planning, engineering, and design consulting firms with over 2,800 staff members in more than 75 offices across the U.S., we offer full services in a wide range of disciplines. Whether your project is national or local and involves public infrastructure or private development, we look out for your best interests, reduce your risk, and deliver great value.

We asked over 1,000 of our clients what stands out about Kimley-Horn. They said it’s the total experience of working with us—that with Kimley-Horn, you can truly expect more and experience better.

The Kimley-Horn Difference

Our former president, Ed Vick, said, “We have no reason to exist except to serve our clients.” That intense focus on providing quality consulting services to the people we serve has made Kimley-Horn one of the nation’s top consulting firms in dozens of disciplines, turning thoughtful proposals into award-winning projects and satisfied clients, and going above and beyond to exceed our clients’ expectations.

But our work can only be as successful as the people behind each proposal, plan, and project—that’s why Kimley-Horn not only hires top talent, but also gives them the tools to help them succeed. Our core purpose is “to provide an environment for our people to flourish,” and we do that by giving our employees opportunities for a path to entrepreneurship, internal technical training programs, bonus-based incentives, and more. We know that people are fulfilled, motivated, and challenged in different ways. We support our people to grow into roles and take on opportunities that they’re passionate about. Growing professionally, having fun with our colleagues, and finding satisfaction in our work are central to our way of life.
