ABOUT SHAFER, KLINE & WARREN

At SKW, we are problem solvers, committed to helping make life better, easier and safer.

We use our engineering, surveying and construction capabilities to provide comprehensive solutions for energy and infrastructure in communities large and small. SKW traces its roots back to 1885, making it one of the oldest continuously operating engineering and surveying firms in the nation. Through our foundation in surveying, we take a ground-up approach to developing lasting relationships with our clients. Large enough to effectively serve our clients while offering the personalized service of a smaller firm, SKW provides end-to-end solutions tailored to our clients’ needs.

SKW employees work through design plans

SKW is involved in the creation of all forms of development, from residential areas people call home, to the offices and industrial areas where they work. Children attend schools, families visit places of worship; and people, young and old, visit parks and recreational areas to unwind. You can also find the impact of our work in shopping districts, grocery stores, retail shops and restaurants.

SKW designs the infrastructure that ties a community together, including the streets, highways and bridges, as well as the electrical, oil and gas utilities that fulfill energy needs. SKW satisfies water needs, from developing a safe water supply to returning treated wastewater back to the environment.

As critical infrastructure projects have grown in size and scale, more clients are seeking ways to optimize the balance between cost and risk while improving efficiency and accountability among their engineering and construction partners.

SKW was quick to recognize this trend and expanded their capabilities in engineering, procurement and construction to meet growing client demand and improve project delivery and quality. In 2008, SKW created a wholly owned subsidiary, SKW Enterprise Solutions, to define, develop and deliver products and construction services that complement the surveying and engineering services they’d become known for since 1950.

With Enterprise Solutions, SKW is better able to serve clients throughout the U.S. by providing consulting, design, fabrication, construction and technical solutions that emphasize quality, scalability, convenience and value for the oil and gas, power, alternative power and water/wastewater industries.
