On Thursday March 19, 2020, as Governor Newsom implemented a shelter in place policy, simultaneously QK was transitioning to a fully remote workforce (TELEWORK).  Given the implications of the COVID-19 public health crisis and the need for reducing the spread, QK has the ability to work effectively with YOU (our clients and Agency Partners) through Microsoft Teams and other collaboration software from a remote work environment.  Our remote workforce and use of collaboration technology allows QK to advance your projects and maintain a safe work environment during this unprecedented time.

QK remains focused on YOUR projects, deliverables and schedules.  Through utilizing a team approach with our clients and agency partners, I know we can continue through this difficult public health crisis together!  With that in mind, I want to share the following:

  • QK is open for business, our teams are working remotely and ready to continue serving you.
  • Our focus is on your project: The times have changed but our focus remains the same and that is getting your project completed and providing innovative solutions to your needs.
  • We continue to be one connected team with our clients and agency partners.  We are available to meet using Microsoft Teams, other video conferencing tools as needed to keep you connected.
  • QK can still be contacted via office phone, cell phones, email, or text at any time.  QK is committed to making this transition and collaboration easier for everyone.
  • Our field operations will CONTINUE for construction observation, biological monitoring and land surveying and YES, we are practicing appropriate social distancing practices for a safe work environment.

Whether it’s project specific or something we can do to support your overall organization, we are here for you.

We’re serious about making communities stronger. Every one of our projects is designed to help Californians live richer, healthier lives.


If you don’t know where to start with a complex, California-based  project, QK is your best resource.

QK is built on five distinct areas of expertise that work together to make the built environment possible. We have the industry’s most creative professionals in engineering design and construction management, survey and GIS, urban design and landscape architecture, biology and environmental permitting, and planning.

QK incorporates its GIS (Geographic Information System) into each area of our business. Biology loves the flexibility afforded by our ability to provide them with quickly generated field maps on their mobile devices. Land Surveyors use it to track their jobs (both historical and current) and as a quick reference for locating benchmarks while in the field. Engineering uses it as a spatial catalog for their city infrastructure. Planning capitalizes on the ability to have each city’s zoning, general plan, and parcel information at their fingertips. We’re always looking for (and finding!) ways to maximize the investment made in our staff and equipment to improve QK as a whole.

For decades we’ve been helping clients make their ideas come to life not just through innovative design, planning, and construction, but also by helping them work through their funding questions. Let us guide you through your funding issues.


If you don’t know where to start with a complex, California based project, QK will be your best resource. Helping 21st century clients like you is what we do best.
