Communications Design

To keep our society connected across various networks, KCI provides a vast array of design services to support, update and expand communications infrastructure.

Our team has expertise in planning, engineering, inspection, permitting, right-of-way and site acquisition for both large carriers and small communications companies alike. By combining years of practical experience with our advanced technical skills, we deliver detailed, customer-specific infrastructure design to commercial, institutional, federal, state and private sector organizations.

As the demand for telecommunication continues to grow, KCI works to expand network capabilities through design for wireless infrastructure and installation or relocation of wire, cable and fiber optic systems. We additionally support upgrade efforts with in-house complementary services such as survey, subsurface utility engineering, geotechnical investigations, structural inspection, environmental permits and GIS database management.
