About AKS

AKS is a consulting engineering firm focused on developing infrastructure for public and private clients in the Northwest.

AKS Engineering & Forestry is a consulting firm focused on developing infrastructure for private and public clients in the Pacific Northwest. With 85% of our work coming from repeat clients, we have an established, broad-based portfolio of clients including landowners, real-estate developers, architects, government agencies, public service providers, timberland owners, and others. We’ve enjoyed steady growth allowing the company to thrive and flourish since 1996 and with growth comes progress and opportunity.

Whether it is a small project or spanning hundreds of acres, we use our diverse in-house capabilities to make the vision come to life. Our focus is on finding the right solution for the client, not just the project, by building long-term relationships. We are consistently ranked among the top 10 largest consulting engineering firms in the Portland metropolitan region and diligently remain true to our values and focus on quality.

The Culture:

AKS is not your typical consulting firm.

AKS is not your typical consulting firm. We’ve done away with the typical silos created by corporate profit centers and rigid departments. Instead, AKS is organized around multidisciplinary project teams that follow a project from conception through construction. We function as one company, one team, one community. With a reputation built on personal responsibility, straight answers, practical solutions, and client service, AKS has become a highly sought-after place to work. In fact, AKS was recognized by The Oregonian as one of the Top Workplaces in 2018, 2019, and 2021.

We feel accountable and empowered to build a culture where everyone thrives and we intentionally seek out, learn, understand, and appreciate who – and what – surrounds us. We care deeply about a positive experience for all and creating an environment of fairness, equality, and feeling heard and valued. We look for opportunities to share meals together every week, go on teambuilding adventures, make team site visits, and host events that bring our people and clients together.


AKS values our employees and proudly provides competitive compensation and benefits.
