We produce innovative designs for systems that incorporate energy conservation, maintenance efficiency and environmental responsibility.
KCI understands that engineered systems are crucial design elements in the functionality of buildings and facilities. Our team provides expertise in mechanical, electrical and plumbing system design for central plant, HVAC, plumbing, process piping, materials handling, refrigeration, industrial ventilation, and utilities systems. KCI’s experienced professionals commission HVAC and fire protection systems in addition to providing electrical design through systems commissioning for projects ranging from a modest system upgrade to a multi-million-dollar new campus construction.

With a dedicated staff of LEED-accredited and Energy Star-certified engineers, we also offer green building design and building commissioning to ensure the sustainability and performance of facility systems. KCI partners with owners, architects and contractors to conduct feasibility studies and prepare designs for mechanical, power, lighting, communication, electrical assemblies, control and distribution systems, and subsystems. Our team additionally offers specialized expertise in Zero Net Energy (ZNE) building design and redundancy design for generators and uninterruptible power supplies that are required for emergency operations facilities.
Engineering and land surveying services provided in North Carolina are performed by our associated entity, KCI Associates of North Carolina, P.A.
We work closely with the design team to integrate passive heating, cooling, and lighting, and design optimal mechanical and electrical systems that meet clients’ needs when natural approaches cannot.
