KCI’s affiliation with heavy/highway and bridge contractors has provided our employees with the knowledge and experience of working with construction issues on a day-to-day basis. We now serve more than 70 contractors throughout the eastern United States, and can develop and incorporate new ideas to help contractors save time and money, based on the continuous influx of information on new construction concepts and problems encountered by contractors in the heavy/highway construction industry. We offer contractors a level of confidence that each concept discussed is fully understood by KCI staff and the most effective approach used for design and construction of each system. Many of the projects we have been involved with are fast track, value-engineering projects that require a dedicated staff to perform the design, complete plans and secure client approval under very accelerated timeframes in order to meet original construction schedules. KCI has saved DOT clients more than $7.5 million in value engineering savings and several years of construction time by incorporating innovative ideas on transportation projects.
