While we can proudly provide you with the same quality service the larger firms offer, we are still the small town people at our core. Our capabilities might have increased, but our work ethic and integrity are as strong as they have ever been.

Our Story

The History of Kaw Valley Engineering

40 Years of Industry Experience

Kaw Valley Engineering was established on June 6, 1982, in a two-bedroom home in Junction City, KS. While many firms choose to name themselves after their founders, Leon Osbourn, John Sheets and Greg Christiansen decided to base their firm name on the location of their first office. Since those humble beginnings, our firm has grown to more than 170 employees throughout six offices that continue to provide a full line of engineering services throughout the Midwest.
