Universities, colleges and other educational institutions have the capacity to think long term. You want high quality facility infrastructure that is going to have a long and efficient life. You want to know you’re getting a solution that will meet the mission for the next 20 years or more.

Many firms can provide adequate short-term designs. What sets KFI apart from the field is that our expertise extends from sophisticated long-range planning, through all facets of design, to commissioning and client training. It is truly a cradle-to-cradle approach.
