Projects

Experience forms the basis for how we approach our work. We have used that experience to improve the quality of life in neighborhoods and communities for over three decades. The experiences we gain from working for a wide range of clients – from individuals to small communities, to large governmental agencies – expose us to new ideas, techniques, and solutions. Working collaboratively with other professional from the fields of construction, architecture, art, accounting, science, and public relations, we help design comprehensive solutions to complex problems.

Education & Institutional

KDAPL has understood the importance of educating our youth and are committed to designing facilities which provide a safe and pleasant environment where learning and teaching can take place. We have designed and renovated many educational and institutional facilities for kindergarten through high school that meet the needs of public and private school students, parents, faculty, and administrations.

KDAPL has designed new schools, additions and renovations to existing schools, transportation/bus maintenance facilities as well as infrastructure improvements. KDAPL stands ready to continue improving the quality of education through better facilities with thoughtful civil engineering and surveying services.

Government

Understanding the requirements for a project and then listening to the client is paramount to succeed on any project. While the government endeavors to standardize most operations, each governmental agency and branch of the military have slightly different procedures and design standards to navigate through during the project development and construction.

Healthcare

Our group has created a significant market in medical care that require doctor offices and hospitals. KDAPL has creates sited for these facilities and were vital members of the teams of architects and engineers to meet this tremendous need.

Hospitality & Recreation

The hectic pace of modern life has created a desire by the populace to find time to spend away from the frantic speed of the workplace. Thus was born the concept of theme parks and other facilities to give people an alternative to the family picnic at the city park.

Residential

Since the Cro-Magnon Man first found shelter in a cave, people have always wanted place to rest, raise their families and call their own. Today’s residential communities vary from large acreage tract to the condominiums located in the center of bustling metropolitan cities. Each type of residential form of development requires a knowledge of the rules and regulations as well as the features that each form of residence must contain or the development will not prosper.

KDAPL is actively engaged in the development of the regulations where these criteria are discussed and formulated. This intimate knowledge gives our staff the ability to design residential projects effectively and economically.

Roadway & Highway

When ancient Rome dominated the European continent, the Appian Way was constructed to transport troops and supplies to the outlying regions of the Roman Empire. The Interstate Highway System envisioned by General Eisenhower provided the United States with a network of roadways for the purpose of improving commerce across the country while meeting our nation’s military objectives.

KDAPL has provided professional services to TxDOT on projects including segments of the Interstate System and the supporting roadway system of U.S. Highways, Farm to Market roads and local and county facilities. In addition to roadway and highway design, KDAPL provides effective solutions to traffic congestion problems with experienced Traffic Engineers for Intelligent Traffic Management Systems, traffic control plans, signalized corridors, and traffic modeling and simulation analyses.

Surveying & Mapping

KDAPL has a team of Registered Professional Land Surveyors directing survey crews complete with modern field equipment in San Antonio and Laredo. These crews are routinely dispatched across the State of Texas providing Surveying services which include topography, boundary, Oil and Gas related surveys, ALTA/ACSM, Right of Way and easement surveys, as-built surveys and construction staking.

Our state-of-the art surveying instruments, electronic data collectors, GPS capability, and computer systems allow us to provide quality services for our clients with superior results – cost savings, efficiency and reliability. KDAPL understands the connection between surveying and engineering to provide precise and reliable data. KDAPL performs surveys for design of commercial sites and agency infrastructure to include building sites, waterlines, storm sewers, sanitary sewers, utility design, parking lots, contour maps and easement acquisition.

IT & Software

CoolSoft is a software development unit of K.D.Associates Pvt. Ltd. working in the software development since 1992. In the past she has developed numerous interfacial program for database, autocad, excel and web design. The oustanding software developed by the company are following:

Rate Analysis4

Rate Analysis4@ software is designed for deriving the composite construction rates with the basic material and labor rates as input to the analytical system and the cost estimation of Building, Road, Water Supply, Drainage and Irrigation facilities. Initial page prompts you for the input of project details to tag to each output pages. Then just change or edit the basic construction material rates and get the composite rates of more than 4000 items of work type. You can create or write your own composite rate structure in the norms (program files) and get the result. You can also download the rates of various places of Nepal from www.hurar.com and software can evaluate the composite rates. Once composite rates are prepared, for different type of construction eg. Buildings, Highways Roads and Bridges, Water Supply, Drainage, Irrigation, Sanitary and Plumbing, Electrical and transportation facilities, a forms will be available with items and rates. You check the items and enter the quantities to get abstract of cost at once. This can be saved in excel format or in document format or get the hard copy. From the abstract of cost, breakdown of materials can be prepared with clicking "Show Breakdown of Materials" which can be saved in excel format.

Its easy to operate and save lots of manpower and time for the tedious job giving more time for design amendments. All the results are in presentatble forms saving secretarial jobs.Features are incorporated in the system to read the quantity analysis produced by KumuCad which is under construction.
