Our Company

Since 1972, QK has been helping California grow into the communities we see today. Our company was built by strong values, talented people, and the widespread recognition of our work in the field. We continue to help clients across the state by managing their most challenging infrastructure projects.

Our Team

No one is better at helping clients through the confusing regulations, funding problems, and planning requirements that are part of completing a project in California.

Our employees are the bedrock of the QK brand. Their talent, integrity, and commitment to quality has defined QK’s culture for over four decades and will carry our values into the future.

We are proud to provide our employees with hands-on training, workshops, networking events, tuition reimbursement, sponsored memberships for professional associations, and assistance with obtaining professional licenses.
