About Us

Our Work

We are a multidisciplinary consulting firm that has been serving the Pacific Northwest since 1996. Our team spans seven office locations and is made up of over 360 individuals trained across multiple disciplines, providing a unique perspective that encourages:

  • Thoughtful collaboration on how to best achieve project goals
  • Efficiency generated by a strong understanding of what data is needed, how it is collected, and how it is used
  • Respect for each project phase and understanding the impact that clear communication and forward thinking can have on a project

Our Team

We value the individual perspective each team member brings. It’s the sum of life experiences, knowledge, and skills that create our company culture and results in our success. That’s why we regularly invest in hands-on learning, personal development, and team building.

We are dedicated to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environment. We hire based on skill, dedication, and attitude regardless of skin color, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, or financial class.

Our Clients

Our first job is to serve our clients' needs. We take the time to understand what motivates our clients, what they need, and how we can help them achieve their goals. When we put our clients' needs first, we find everything else has a way of falling into place.

  • “Only rarely do I see this excellent level of planning, communication, and execution of work. The kind of interaction and detailed coordination you demonstrate is exactly what ODOT should do to develop trusting relationships with our partners during design and especially construction. I sleep very well at night knowing [AKS is] involved in this project.”
