In addition to strengthening our municipal and public works services, the combined firm will have an expanded footprint, allowing us to better service clients on both sides of I-25.”
KBN will maintain its downtown Greeley location at 820 8th Street. Northern Engineering’s headquarters will remain at 301 N. Howes Street in Old Town Fort Collins. Mike Ketterling will continue to lead the firm’s Greeley’s operations. The KBN name and employees will remain the same.

We truly feel this creates the top engineering and surveying firm this side of metro Denver.”
