WHO WE ARE
Incorporated in 1983 in Pennsylvania, under the name KC Engineering & Construction Co., performing primarily engineering and construction management for the private sector. KC performed residential construction, civil engineering and civil construction management. KC entered the public bidding market in 1987, successfully completing school additions, office renovations, municipal buildings, and libraries. In the mid 90's, KC began acquiring heavy construction equipment and moved into heavy civil construction. The work included mass transit maintenance facilities, water resources improvements, earth dams, landfills, wastewater treatment facilities, recreational facilities, athletic fields and highway projects.
In 2000, KC began to focus on Dam Rehabilitation and Flood Protection projects, developing a hand-picked group of project managers and skilled laborers who take great pride in quality work. Now having completed 40+ specialty dam, levee and flood control projects in our region, we offer unmatched experience and expertise with an army of seasoned suppliers, subcontractors and consulting partners in tow.
Over the years KC has grown from a small 3-person consulting firm up to a 90-person heavy construction company, now settling into a specialized Civil GC somewhere in between.
