Kenall Inc. (Kenall), a Geotechnical/Environmental/Material Testing Company founded in 2002, is happy to announce three exciting developments in the expansion of our capabilities to provide solutions to the civil engineering, structural engineering, and construction management challenges facing our clients.
Acquisition of Ratnala and Bahl, Inc (RBI). Kenall is proud to now provide the expertise of a full-service Architectural and Engineering (A & E) firm! As a leading Houston-based civil engineering firm, RBI has operated in the Greater Houston Area for more than 30 years, successfully performing public works/infrastructure projects for municipalities and county governments. The acquisition of RBI augments Kenall’s portfolio of services, adding design and construction management of water, wastewater, storm water and transportation projects, and extends our capabilities in providing design, consulting, and construction management services throughout the entire states of Texas and Louisiana.
Kenall – Freese and Nichols, Inc. (FNI) 8(a) Mentor-Protégé Joint Venture (KNFI JV). The KFNI JV has a proven record of successful project performance for clients including the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the International Boundary and Water Commission (IBWC), as well as other government and private entities. Our JV was recently selected by the USACE Fort Worth District as a winner of three new Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) prime contracts. The three new contracts include A&E services related to military installation facilities, dams and levees. Through the KNFI JV, Kenall strengthens our capabilities and competitiveness in both the Federal and local government markets.
Facilities Expansion. In keeping with the growth of our services, Kenall has opened another office dedicated to A&E services at 6200 Savoy Dr. Suite 600, Houston, TX. 77036.
