KU Resources, Inc. was formed in 1997 to provide environmental management consulting services. The business focus of the firm is to bring the knowledge and experience of our Principals and staff to our clients with a significantly reduced overhead structure. As former clients themselves, our Principals had experienced the results of high overhead structures and low levels of personalized service inherent with larger consulting firms. Initially, we focused on providing our services to two core markets: brownfield redevelopment and wood preserving.
We located our headquarters at a former steel manufacturing facility and brownfield redevelopment in Duquesne, Pennsylvania. This location has allowed us to participate in significant Monongahela River Valley brownfield initiatives and then utilize those experiences to serve an expanded geographic area.
Our Principals have extensive wood preserving experience and have leveraged that experience into becoming the premier environmental service provider to that industry, working with multi- and single-facility wood preservers and wood preservative manufacturers.
Our firm’s personnel are experienced environmental project managers, with high levels of technical expertise. This experience and expertise allows us to quickly review the technical, regulatory, and strategic status of projects, and work with our clients to establish project-specific technical and staffing needs. We then assemble the appropriate team of professionals that is selected to meet those specific requirements.
Our approach often results in cost savings that extend beyond our low overhead structure. The collective experience that we bring to projects offers additional cost savings through efficient and innovative project approaches. On numerous occasions, we have demonstrated our ability to save clients substantial amounts of money by virtue of our background and experience.
We now provide a full range of environmental management and consulting services to industrial, commercial, and community-based clients. We specialize in brownfield redevelopment, environmental site assessments, economic revitalization assistance, regulatory permitting and compliance, remediation design and implementation, site development engineering, and environmental risk management strategies.
Our firm’s engineering and environmental consulting capabilities also include the areas of civil and geotechnical engineering, water resource engineering, mining and quarry services, solid waste management services, water quality monitoring, and air quality compliance and permitting. We also provide forensic engineering and litigation support services.
