What We Do


Because no two projects are the same, AKS offers a diverse combination of services not found elsewhere. For public agencies, we assist them with planning and design of capital improvements and support them through construction. That can also mean responding on a moments notice to emergencies. Our private development clients rely on us to provide feasibility and entitlement services, and provide all the services necessary to get their project in the ground.

We are committed to meeting client needs with a focus on high quality. Our work with all types of clients provides us a broader perspective in balancing the needs of entire communities.  Therefore, AKS has earned a reputation for producing outstanding work. Our clients seek us out and keep coming back because they know AKS will keep their best interest in mind and can deliver.
