KCM works with owners before a project even begins to ensure they have the required stormwater and air quality permits in place. By coordinating with field crews, client teams and other project consultants we are able to ensure the construction sites are prepared as required by the regulating agencies. We know how to implement and manage permit requirements in all stages of the construction process.
