Though I have only worked with KSE for just a few years, their professional style and super-efficient work ethic, will ensure that our company will continue to utilize their services, and help grow our business as well as theirs. Their designs are cost effective, and their attention to detail and special requests from us, have always come quickly, with attention to detail. From the largest design request to a simple need in the field, they always come through with flying colors! KSE has the team assembled to accommodate any size builder, and I give my fullest endorsement to anyone needing their services.
Aaron O., Regional General Manager
Resibuilt, Charlotte, NC
I have had the privilege of working with KSE Engineering and KSE Architecture for more than 20 yrs. Ken and his team provide exceptional service including value engineering suggestions or simplified designs to minimize cost but achieve the goal originally set forth. His staff is responsive and communicates very well so it is easy to follow and understand. I look forward to continuing to work with them as we help build homes for those that want homes.
Matt H., Brand Manager

We’ve been utilizing their services in our Carolina divisions for a while now and they’ve been great for us. We highly recommend KSE Engineering and look forward to future business with them.
Kelly L., Architectural Design Manager
Deluxeton Homes, Atlanta, GA
I have had the pleasure of working with KSE Engineering for several years and I cannot speak highly enough of this team.I have worked with both the Structural Engineering team and Architectural team and their knowledge and skill in both areas are unprecedented. Their work has always come back in a timely fashion, is accurate, and helps me do my job better. They are wonderful about even the smallest changes to a project and when my decisions change from day to day, they stay on schedule and are great about making sure that everything affected by the change is considered. Again, I think very highly of the work I have received from KSE and I strongly recommend this group to anyone who is looking for solid Structural Engineering and Architectural Design.
Pilar N., Product Development Manager
As Product development Manager for Caruso Homes at MD, DE, NC & PA, I am pleased to confirm the excellent work, accuracy and Professionalism received from KSE in all of the structural plans assigned, not to mention their expedite time frame on each of them which make it easier to meet all our deadlines scheduled. They also help us find observations in the Architectural plans one step ahead to avoid any future incongruences. We are very satisfied and confident with their job for the current and years ahead to come.
Garrison S., Director of Operations
Davidson Homes, Raleigh, North Carolina
I have partnered with KSE for almost a decade in large volume production home building. Ken Keen and Andrew Moore have always fulfilled my expectations. Having dealt with other engineers throughout my career, KSE far exceeds others in their responsiveness, attention to detail, and customer service. Not only do they provide quality engineering, but they do it with the customers’ building cost in mind. A unique trait about KSE is they are willing to collaborate with the customer when an engineering detail is not efficient and causing headaches during the building or inspection process. I would recommend KSE to any business that is seeking professional engineering.
Matthew D., Regional Director of Architecture
As the Director of Architecture for a large national housing provider, I have had the pleasure of working with KSE Engineering. Over the past 18+ years I have found the experience valuable and rewarding to our company. KSE’s expertise in structural design has led us to keep down with value engineering, as well as providing a blueprint for our framers and vendors to provide consistency in production of our homes. All members of the KSE Staff are consummate professionals and are also a pleasure to work side by side with. Their knowledge of the industry as structural engineers can only serve as a great contribution to any housing provider.
The staff at KSE take great care of us. They engineer our plans with delicate precision, without wasting unnecessary materials, time and money. It was also a huge workload taken off our shoulders when we heard they maintain their own structural sheets. Their turnaround time is top notch, too. When you’re ready, they’re ready. I would recommend KSE to any of our colleagues and business partners in need of professional engineering.
Working with KSE to create our structural plans is a key component to our home building operation working smoothly. Jim and the team is so pleasant to work with and delivers high quality plans quickly and efficiently to keep our projects moving forward. We continue to be pleased with the work, year after year.
David Weekley Homes, Charlotte, North Carolina
In the time that we’ve partnered with KSE Engineering, we’ve come to find that their level of expertise in the field and customer service are top notch in the industry. They make the effort to understand what we need and then help us design efficient structural systems.
They have become an important part of our team!
KSE is a valued resource for our Carolina Architectural Department. Ken Keen, in particular, does a wonderful job of managing our projects by providing timely communication and quick turnaround time on all of our structural deliverables. He can be counted on to go above and beyond to meet or exceed our deadlines. I also greatly appreciate the accuracy of his work, especially when assisting with last minute requests.
Cheryl A. O., AIA
C. O’Brien Architects, Inc.
I have worked with Charles for years. He is reliable, competent, and very responsive. I can always count on him. And he has a great sense of humor, which I enjoy. I feel lucky to have him as a part of our consultant team.
Guy D., Purchasing Manager
With 36 years of experience in the residential construction industry, I cannot say enough good things about KSE Engineering, Jim, and the entire staff. We are a relatively small home builder and quality as well as cost effectiveness is key to our success and growth. KSE provides us with sound engineering for our plans and cost-effective designs that do not waste unnecessary materials. They help us to save time and money with their designs. Their turnaround time is outstanding and there is always someone available to address questions and field issues. KSE is a key component to our success as a homebuilder in today’s highly competitive housing market. I highly recommend KSE Engineering!
