Ken Saucier - Office Engineer, Project Engineer, & Assistant Project Manager
Ken Saucier has more than 25 years of experience as an Office Engineer, Project Engineer, and Assistant Project Manager on aviation, public works, educational, and commercial projects. He has been with KKCS since 2014 and has worked on large projects for agencies such as LAWA, LACCD, and LAUSD. Some of Ken’s duties include attending weekly scheduling meetings with the contractor and subcontractor foremen; coordinating area shutdown requests and utility shutdown requests; issuing change and field directives; reviewing change order requests; and coordinating and presenting semi-weekly updates at the project stakeholder meeting.
Ken served as an Office Engineer for the MSC Project at LAX, where he has been assigned since November 2016. The project is the next substantial project in the continued modernization of LAX and is being built west of its immediate neighbor, the Tom Bradley International Terminal. In addition to his duties as Office Engineer, Ken was assigned as Area Manager for the remote LADWP Industrial Substation. The substation will serve as the location for the primary electrical feed, housing the LADWP transformers, as well as LAWA’s switchgear for the MSC. Ken says, "Working with KKCS at LAX has been both challenging and rewarding. It has been a tremendous learning opportunity. I have learned that planning, planning, and more planning, increases the opportunity for success."
In his spare time, Ken enjoys DIY projects around the house, tending to his salsa garden, and walking his yellow lab mix, Ginger. Despite his hectic work schedule, Ken has been a dedicated volunteer for the Museum Service Council at LACMA for the past 10 years. He considers being immersed in art the perfect break from the work week and enjoys helping visitors locate artworks by certain artists and find their way around the museum.
