08/19/2014 KCI welcomes Dewayne L. Sykes, PE, CPM, as highway practice leader in Raleigh. Sykes brings to the firm nearly 40 years of experience in highway design and a thorough understanding of the highway project development process and utility relocation within the state.
The S.T. Wooten Design-Build team was selected by the North Carolina Turnpike Authority (NCTA) to design and construct the $1.03 billion three-mile-long Triangle Parkway segment. KCI was responsible for construction quality control, mainly consisting of inspection and testing, to ensure that the new highway is built in accordance with the project’s plans and specifications.
KCI just passed a major milestone—our silver anniversary, 25 years of employee ownership. On December 15, 1988, the employees of Kidde Consultants Inc. completed a leveraged buyout from our parent company Hanson Trust PLC—a British company who had purchased the Walter Kidde company in 1987.
