KCI maintains an ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility, and our accredited professionals lead the way in implementing, designing and constructing projects with state-of-the-art sustainability features.

Our team is experienced in working on all levels of LEED-certified facilities, verifying Envision awards, planning and managing construction for green streets, and designing Net Zero Energy buildings. We approach sustainable design by assessing the long-term impacts of a project on local infrastructure capacity or using natural energies such as solar, wind, and geothermal cooling whenever possible.
