"Across the company you will find genuine people with a common belief of working together to build something we are all proud of."

- Tom Huster
Since 1922 we have remained true to our roots as A Builder and Not A Broker, and because of that our biggest asset remains our people. We have a diverse background that allows us to be successful in many different types of projects. Our experience in those varied areas builds confidence with project owners, and the confidence in our people to develop new solutions to meet challenges, builds excellence.
As Project Managers, we strive to treat our Owners, Subcontractors and Suppliers with fairness and respect. Our goal is to foster relationships through cooperation to reach a common goal. We work together with our Superintendents and Field Forces to maximize productivity, while working safely. Our ultimate goal is to deliver a Project to our client that exceeds their expectations.
The integration of Safety, Quality, and Productivity are necessary for a successful project. Without any one of them, a project will suffer. KCI's Operations Team focuses on these three elements every day on every project. Pre-planning and communication of daily goals to everyone on the job ensure that at the end of the day we can all go home the same way we started the day. We pride ourselves on our ability to self-perform and retain risk, and we don't subscribe to the idea that self-performed, high risk work will result in incidents or injuries.
We take great pride in the work we put in place, and that pride is evident in every trade and skill level throughout the company. Many have worked for KCI for over 20 years, with an evident sense of family that is willing to help each other out at any time. KCI is a Builder, not a Broker, and our mindset is to pull together to develop new solutions to project challenges.
