Our History

In 1973, a structural engineer in Oklahoma City named Ed Kirkpatrick had the idea to create a structural consulting company founded on the principals of treating clients like partners and getting projects done on-time, the right way, no matter the job. This company was the Kirkpatrick Engineering Company.

In 2001, Rick Forest and Larry Curtis joined Ed in his pursuit for engineering excellence and created Kirkpatrick Forest Curtis PC, also known as KFC Engineering. Since 2001, KFC Engineering has grown to become one of the largest structural consulting firms in Oklahoma, and in 2011, Ed’s own son, Alan Kirkpatrick, became a principal.

KFC Engineering attributes its accomplishments as a structural engineering firm to its dedication to providing a high quality product within the client’s schedule and budget constraints.

As a well-established firm, KFC Engineering recognizes that in order to maintain strong client relationships, a commitment to provide superior service is essential.  The ability to offer such service is found in the commitment of our staff and our extensive project experience.
