KCI provides full design-build services for a variety of facilities. Our engineers and construction managers routinely partner with general contractors to provide design and construction oversight for highways, bridges, buildings, water and wastewater treatment facilities, pump stations, communications, and environmental restoration projects.

KCI has experience in public-private partnerships (P3) and design-build project delivery methods to expedite schedules and control project costs. We have become experts at fostering teamwork and communication. As one of the leading design firms in design-build delivery of heavy highway, water, facility, and infrastructure projects, KCI’s extensive experience allows us to bring innovative ideas to contractors, partners and owners throughout the country.

We deliver projects with a strong emphasis on scheduling, cost control and quality assurance, while adding significant value to our projects by solving complex constructability issues during the design phase. Lessons learned in the field are routinely captured and incorporated into future designs. Because of our working relationships and design experience with over 40 heavy highway, bridge, infrastructure and building contractors, our engineers specialize in constructability and best value solutions.

With years of experience, our team understands the demands for staff availability and consistency, schedule compliance, problem solving, and quick processing of permits and reviews. The firm has not only participated in the design and management of actual design-build projects, but has also assisted a number of government, institutional and private-sector clients with preparation of design-build proposals. Through this experience, we understand design-build approaches from the joint perspectives of both the document preparer (Owner’s Rep) as well as the document user and project implementer.
