KLH Engineers Receives NKY Chamber of Commerce Innovation Award


Kohrs Lonnemann Heil Engineers, Inc. (KLH Engineers) is pleased to announce it was named the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Innovation Award winner Thursday, May 2, 2024, at the Business Impact Awards. The Innovation Award recognizes a business that has inspired and delivered new thinking in the marketplace and has bravely stepped into the unknown and delivered their unique point of difference.

With an innovative culture that consistently challenges the status quo, KLH Engineers is committed to streamlining the design and construction of the built environment. Recognizing inefficiencies and technological limitations in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, has driven KLH to evolve from a singularly focused consulting engineering firm to an industry-changing enterprise.

A fundamental aspect of KLH’s strategy revolves around its commitment to investing in proprietary technology developed within its in-house software department. Since 2016, the company has been developing AutodeskĀ® RevitĀ® add-ins, becoming an Autodesk Authorized Developer in 2020. Leveraging these tools, KLH has achieved significant cost savings, reducing direct service expenses by 16.5 percent last year alone.

This year, the firm successfully launched the software tools to market and introduced four subscription-based software bundles tailored for MEP engineering and model management. Designed to customize Revit, the add-ins enable design teams to reduce modeling times, enhance quality and increase profitability.

In addition to its technological advancements, KLH has fostered innovation through its incubation efforts and strategic partnerships, leading to the establishment of Levcon Analytics, an AEC data consultancy, and Demain, a provider of industrialized construction.

Through these strategic initiatives, KLH Engineers continues to demonstrate its resilience and adaptability in navigating the dynamic landscape of the construction industry. The firm continues to explore emerging technological trends and their potential impact on the AEC industry including machine learning and AI.
