The consulting engineering firm of KLH Engineers provides engineering solutions for clients throughout the tri-state area and nationally. Experience covers many different types of facilities across various market segments. KLH has completed more than 16,000 projects for retail, educational, healthcare, civic, and commercial clients. KLH is known as one of the largest engineering firms in Kentucky and Ohio, and has been recognized as a top engineering firm by Building, Design + Construction and Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazines.



At KLH we built our reputation in the Education Segment by providing value to the project through responsibly sustainable design, being attentive to client needs, and providing high quality. We understand state building standards and the local desire for tailored solutions in educational facilities that speak to local needs. Our team strives to find what makes your education facility distinctive. We recognize the outcome is learning for the student and as so treat every project as if our own children will attend it.

Don’t settle for another building full of typical classrooms. Tell us your story of how you teach and how you convey content for learning. We’re experts in converting pedagogy into the systems that support it. We ask, we listen, and then we design.

Our project experience spans the same diversity that one finds in today’s learners. This would also include the diversity of project owners from public to private. Each owner type often brings pre-existing project standards (e.g. state standards, technology standards, construction or bidding processes, etc.) that we need to utilize. One of our core strengths is our team’s ability to integrate your project requirements into our process to deliver excellent outcomes.

When thinking of electrical engineering, the thought that flashes through your mind is “that’s how the light turns on!” While it’s true, electrical engineering is much more. It is the design of electrical power systems ranging from large scale settings such as how power comes from a utility company to why the lights come on when you flip a light switch. Electrical engineers are in charge of designing power systems to ensure that buildings receive proper electrical distribution and all aspects of the building are properly powered. This includes lighting and associated lighting control, critical operations equipment, emergency backup power, power to receptacles, HVAC, computers, and water heaters. All are designed with future growth and flexibility of the space in mind.

Our commercial work consists of a variety of projects that include retail shops, medical buildings, industrial and manufacturing facilities, professional office buildings, restaurants and more – any facility used to conduct business or commerce. Our engineers address a number of aspects that affect the function of a building. These may include the heating, cooling, and ventilation systems to ensure that the placement of equipment, the routing of ductwork, and the placing of vents throughout the space allow the occupants to enjoy comfortable temperatures at all times. KLH designed systems incorporate sustainable design features including energy management systems, highly efficient HVAC and lighting, reduced water consumption, improved indoor air quality, and reduced CO2 emission footprint.

KLH provides engineering services for new construction, additions, renovations, expansions, and downsizes for a variety of retail projects – small and big box stores, department stores, and larger scale retail developments such as malls, lifestyle centers, and mixed use facilities.

Our firm is not only driven by the designs we create, but ultimately by the spaces resulting from our work. We ask questions, seek to understand the project’s goals, and consult on solutions.

Existing condition information is critical for all projects -- whether new build or renovation. This information is typically garnered from a site survey or record drawings. If an engineering survey is required, KLH visits the site to determine the existing conditions. The owner’s prototypical standards in conjunction with the obtained existing condition information would then be utilized to design the MEP systems. KLH works closely with the architect and owner to finalize construction documents and ensure the systems provided meet the client’s expectations for the building. KLH is always available for questions, construction administration services, and site visits as necessary during the construction phase of the project.
