Military construction projects bring with them a unique set of requirements for all parties involved. Whether it is the strict quality control requirements or the security clearance, KTI is prepared for military jobs, because we have been there. KTI was founded at WAFB and has more experience with projects on military installations than any other testing firm in the Kansas City area.
