Founded in 1992, privately-held Kapela and Pachowski (KiP) specializes in structured design for civil engineering and architectural projects.


Our core team consists of 19 full-time designers and technical specialists. Eleven are engineers. Seven have professional licenses enabling them to design all types of structures in Poland. Based on project needs, we can easily enlarge our team by adding engineers, technicians and CAD operators.

We are led by our senior designers (business partners):

Piotr Pachowski Ph.D., M.Sc., Civ.Eng. - Senior Project Designer and  President of the company
Piotr Kapela M.Sc., Civ. Eng. - Senior Project Designer, Partner, and Director

University Connection

Both senior designers lecture and take part in research projects at the Warsaw University of Technology in the Faculties (departments) of Civil Engineering and Architecture. Cooperation with the university provides access to qualified experts for solving especially difficult problems. Our permanent university consultants are:

Professor Józef Sieczkowski, Sc.D., Ph.D., Civ.Eng., a specialist in high rise buildings
Professor Jan Pachowski, Ph.D., Civ.Eng., a specialist in geotechnics


We strive for high standards, integrity and on-time delivery. Our goal is to build a stable team and atmosphere where our designers can achieve their full potential. We believe that stability and teamwork positively affect the realization of each project, providing quality structures that exceed our clients expectations and th sense of a job well done for ourselves.


With more than 20 years' experience in structural design between them, our senior designers have worked on projects both in Poland and abroad. In the last 14 years, we completed over 300 projects including: housing estates, business centers, churches, industrial stores, commercial centres, factories, restaurants, schools, hostels, residencies, embassies, fuel stations, and engineering structures. We have specified projects using R.C., steel, laminated wood, timber and masonry.

Thanks to our professional team and in cooperation with the best architectural firms, our clients enjoy award-winning non-conventional architectural designs and interesting structural solutions.


We use IBM-compatible computers, Computer Aided Design (CAD), and several statistical programs that allow us to analyze and calculate the dimensions for each structure. We have customized some software in-house to suit our specific requirements.

KiP's activity is insured in Gerling.
