Utility Coordination

KCI’s dedicated utility coordinators are focused on addressing the needs of each key stakeholder and planning for the successful resolution of utility issues.

The benefits of quality and efficient utility coordination can mean the difference of eliminating millions of dollars’ worth of utility impacts, missed construction schedules or the delay of getting power and communication services to your new project site. Our team works to successfully modify or relocate utilities where proposed design and construction may impact existing utility lines.
