KGM Engineering

The bridge between construction and engineering

July 2022 Edition

Business background

KGM Engineering (KGM) is a renowned construction and structural engineering company that combines more than 20 years of construction experience with a unique approach to cost-efficient engineering solutions, bridging the gap between construction and engineering. With locations around the world, this company specializes in construction and bridge engineering in Canada, tower engineering in Europe, and geostructural engineering in Africa for renewable energy.

Since problems cannot always be solved from a design point of view, construction know-how is essential for the successful completion of a project. KGM’s major strength is being able to design and incorporate construction engineering into their design methodology. This allows their team to isolate many constructability issues during the design phase and provide insight into unforeseen challenges during all phases of construction.

Proudly Canadian and believing in more than just client satisfaction, KGM remains focused on community development projects that are achieved with help from its subsidiaries KGM Africa, KGM Europe, and KGM Community.
