Sands engineering, llc
Kenneth E. Sands, P.E., President
I have been involved in the field of Civil/Structural Engineering for 24 years. I started out doing manual drafting, and worked my way through helping implement and manage the automation of the drafting, standardizing on Autodesk Civil products. I have been a member of ASCE, ITE and NSPE for a number of years. I am currently Treasurer of the Southwest Ohio Chapter of the Ohio Society of Professional Engineers. Most recently, the projects I have been working on are foundation settlement projects. These are usually in conjunction with local foundation repair contractors.
Sands Engineering was started over six years ago, and has been a great experience. When I started, I was not familiar with the complexity of running my own business. Through some trial and error, tons of reading, and some help from friends and former associates, I figured out what to do. As the sole proprietor, I have to do the day to day administrative duties, as well as the design work.
The original market that I served was Southwest Ohio. Because of some projects for multi-state clients, my business has now expanded to include Northern and Central Kentucky, as well as Southwest Florida.
Projects that I have worked on include: commercial site development, commercial tenant finish, commercial low-rise structural design, transportation engineering, surface mining permitting, residential house plans, residential structural repair details, foundation inspection and design, and residential bridge design.
