NXL, A Division of Kleinfelder

NXL, A Division of Kleinfelder is a leading group of talented construction managers, transportation engineers, and surveyors. As part of the Kleinfelder family of companies, we bring the experience of more than 3,000 professionals engaged in the planning and design of a variety of facilities, structures, and engineering projects. With this experienced and passionate team, we deliver quality and enhance our clients’ infrastructure programs. We provide our clients with services of the highest caliber.

In the last 30 years, NXL transformed from a one-person operation to a company of over 100 talented employees providing services on world-class projects. In late 2021, Kleinfelder acquired Century Engineering and NXL, thus expanding our services and reach nationwide. NXL now operates as “NXL, A Division of Kleinfelder,” still providing our Virginia and mid-Atlantic clients with the quality services and staff they’re accustomed to.
