Long-time established (1945) and having facilities outside the US - Canada and Australia - the firm is focused primarily on developing protective designs and devices for extreme load environments such as those associated with blast, shock, and high-velocity impacts, K&C personnel also provide risk assessments and R&D related to blast effects and high-energy impacts. Objective: to ensure client security from risks associated with extreme events, especially malevolent threats such as those related to terrorist attacks that could involve blasts, high-velocity fragments and projectiles, and impacts from vehicles, ships, and airplanes. The firm provides the complete package of engineering design services, construction drawings and supervision, testing to demonstrate the validity of designs, and educational seminars to explain the technology behind the work. Provided protective designs fornew and existing buildings and of other types of facilities (e.g., sports arenas), bridges and other components of the infrastructure (e.g., dams, locks), and processing and manufacturing facilities (e.g., petrochemical plants).
