Kevin Hsu, PE, has more than 30 years of construction management and engineering experience. During the 26 years he served as a project manager for the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), he oversaw the design and construction phases of $20-million federally-funded transportation projects in the Denver metro area. His experience spans all phases of project coordination, from planning and budgeting to close-out documentation. 

As a CDOT project manager, Kevin negotiated with state agencies to secure funding, and coordinated with the FHWA, City and County of Denver, RTD, and utility companies. He managed and monitored the progress of IGAs (Intergovernmental Agreements). As part of pre-project preparations, Kevin drafted the scope of work and estimated costs, drafted RFPs and project advertising, and assisted with the selection of consultants and the award process. He developed plans and specifications, reviewed design reports, and facilitated meetings with specialty designers. 

Kevin’s project oversight included; monitoring expenses against budget, negotiating work hours and supervising payroll, processing payments, approving change orders, monitoring the Quality Assurance program, and approving final project documentation. He also monitored, inspected, and reported on contractor operations and progress. Kevin was instrumental in training municipal project managers and material testers, while providing technical assistance to CDOT Project Engineers. 

Kevin holds a Master’s Degree in Geotechnical Civil Engineering from Colorado State University, and is a Colorado Professional Engineer, as well as a licensed contractor in Denver and Aurora. Since retiring from CDOT in 2010, Kevin has been focusing on his own company, Hsu Properties, LLC.

Kevin is available for consulting through the Denver Metro SBDC in downtown Denver, as well as by virtual appointment statewide.
