Founded in Lexington, Kentucky in 1914 by Howard K. Bell, Bell Engineering has earned a solid reputation as a provider of solutions-based, innovative engineering applications that fulfill the needs of communities and industries around the country.
Originally operating as Howard K.

As we approach our 100th anniversary, we are proud that our firm remains locally owned and operated. We are committed now more than ever to developing successful partnerships with our customers.
We employ experts in civil, environmental, mechanical, electrical, operations and value engineering, industrial pretreatment and landscape architecture -- all prepared to work with you to solve issues that you encounter. Our staff leads with the experience and availability necessary to complete projects in a timely, efficient and cost-effective manner, while planning for compliance with the rigorous and ever-changing standards facing the industry.
Bell has the advantage of being on-site from the initial design through the completion of our projects. We still value client input and your feedback will be considered throughout the entire process.
As you browse our website, we hope you will see why Bell is the best choice for your project. We serve our clients with a "hands-on" approach offering top-notch customer service that is second to none.
