KFW Engineers & Surveying is organized around three major branches – Residential Development, Commercial Development and Public Sector. We offer comprehensive services in each sector. Our expertise spans the life of each project from concept to final acceptance so you will enjoy excellent continuity on your project.
KFW is an energetic and nimble firm that embraces the latest technologies to improve our project delivery. We are always on the lookout for newer technological advances that add value for our clients.
For example, we have an extensive GIS database and we are running the latest version of ArcGIS. This improves project site selection and planning. We also use Civil 3D with Building Information Modeling (BIM) which streamlines the project design phase. This software is an excellent tool to provide photo-realistic visualizations at client and stakeholder meetings. KFW stays on the forefront of the latest Low Impact Development (LID) technologies and we have experience installing the newest TCEQ-approved BMP’s. Each KFW survey party is equipped with Leica GPS and robotic Total Stations for the best speed and accuracy. This equipment reduces both field time and office analyzation processes on all of our land surveying work.
KFW’s Civil Engineers are masters in the trade of land development for Residential, Commercial, and Private and Public Sector projects. Our Engineers are here to ensure your goals and expectations are fully met from project planning through construction. With in-house Surveying, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Hydraulics & Hydrology, and Geology Departments, we always have the most capable staff and services available to successfully complete your project.
KFW has built a reputation for taking on projects that host unique challenges and providing innovative solutions—especially in the realm of the Public Sector. We have key staff with substantial experience planning, designing, and managing construction on a variety of government projects throughout South Texas.
KFW’s Surveying Department is truly a vision come to life. The founding Principals recognized the integral role surveyors play in land development – from the planning and design stages to the final construction of property. In order to fully meet the needs of our Clients, KFW Surveying was formed.
Established in 2008, KFW Surveying has built a reputation for dedicated customer service and skilled craftsmanship. Our surveyors will be the first people on your site, measuring and mapping the land!
Both in the office and in the field, our Surveying Department works with the latest technology. Our field crews are equipped with the LEICA GS18 Global Positioning System (GPS), and robotic total stations. To provide scanning services, KFW utilizes the Leica P40 and BLK360 scanners.
KFW Surveying is also excited to announce we will be providing subsurface location services utilizing the Leica DS2000 Ground Penetrating Utility Detection Radar (UDR) & ULTRA Utility Tracing System (UTS).

KFW Engineers & Surveying utilizes GIS tools to generate reports, databases, and online services to help with planning and design implementation for Residential Development, Commercial Development, and Government Services. The GIS Department uses ArcGIS to populate and illustrate city, county, state and, federal datasets. The GIS department uses ArcServer to showcase several different data sets online allowing the user to gather information about a parcel of land and make informed decisions. KFW Engineers uses GIS software along with AutoCAD to provide support for all engineering projects from site selection and data gathering to construction management and final data as-builts.
