Congratulations to Hoefer Welker Principal Elise Kirchhofer on her recognition as one of The Kansas City Business Journal’s 20 to Know in Engineering!
When Hoefer Welker launched an in-house mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering unit this year, the firm chose Kirchhofer to oversee it. The unit’s first project is Aspiria in Overland Park, a major redevelopment of the former Sprint campus — and Hoefer Welker’s future home.

In addition to expertise in project management and sustainable design, Elise has worked as an Owner’s Representative.

In addition to serving as vice president of a national engineering firm, Elise has held leadership roles in a nationally-ranked commercial real estate firm and a regional general contractor, further enhancing her operational acumen. She is a member of the Women Who Mean Business class of 2016.
