Kenosha Sign

About Us

Kenosha is an engineering and procurement company with construction management and inspection services.  Kenosha was founded to match experience with execution tailored for fast-paced projects with quality and cost in mind. Our experience over our careers has taught us that to be successful in the energy and industrial heavy construction industry, it requires flexibility and responsiveness and most importantly strong long-lasting partnerships with our clients.

Our engineering and procurement team has the experience to deliver a successful project, but our relationships with our clients drive the value to create enduring partnerships.  We believe that the ability of a company to maintain resources in a project on a consistent basis is critical for project success and performance improvement. That valued and consistent partnership drives collaboration which permeates throughout all of the stakeholders in a project for a more efficient execution model that can be repeated from one opportunity to the next. 

Our construction management and inspection team consists of highly experienced, proven professionals who know how to focus on execution and provide superior quality assurance.  We offer customizable field services to fit your needs for everything from supporting in-house constructability reviews throughout engineering design; to providing EPC quality and construction support; to field engineering, inspections and claims mitigation.  We can work directly with the engineering team through the project lifecycle to provide a seamless transition from the office to the field and minimize overall project costs.

We know that a project goes beyond cost and schedule and we deliver on our commitments to continuously improve with every partner, on every opportunity and at all stages.
