Our History

KSi Structural Engineers was founded by Kurt Swensson, PhD, PE in 1999.  The firm grew quickly to include a team of talented engineers dedicated to making their clients successful by adding value to every project.  The growth of the firm is driven by loyal clients and friends based on each team member’s creativity, service, experience, and technical ability.   In 2000, KSi landed several major contracts in the corporate, medical, and biotechnology research laboratory markets solidifying the firm’s growth for years to come. In 2015, KSi promoted Eric Blackmore, David Lower, and Thor Wiggins to principals. Our growth, fueled by our loyal clients and industry partners, represents our continued commitment to better serve our clients, our industry, and our community.

Our Infrastructure

After our first year, both offices (Atlanta and Nashville) expanded and our Atlanta office changed location to allow for continued growth. The company’s infrastructure with office interconnectivity, and supporting integrated software was brought on-line to jump start productivity and service to our clients. Design, drafting, communications, and administrative software and hardware are continually upgraded and integrated to support our growing firm and take advantage of improvements in technology.
