Kevin J. Hock, Superintendent - Lake County Road Department

Adkins Consulting Engineering has been working for the City of Klamath Falls for over 30 years. To date they have competed over 150 engineering, surveying, and material testing contracts for the City. The projects have ranged from small to large and complex and include roadway, wastewater, and water projects.
Mark Willrett, PE - Public Works Director

Adkins not only provides a high-quality product for our irrigation and stream restoration projects, but they are also easy to talk with and take the time to explain project design details in a way that works for project managers, contractors, and landowners. All in all, working with Adkins has been a great experience, and we look forward to working with them on many future projects.
Nell Scott, Trout Unlimited - Klamath Restoration Director

Their actions on the Henley School Project helped reduce costs for the bus and vehicle parking areas on the magnitude of $150,000. This was greater than their entire work order amount so they essentially paid for themselves during the design phase of the project. This is a sign that Adkins is truly looking out for the needs of each project and client.
