Who Are We?

NUCA of Greater Kansas City Region’s purpose is to advance the utility construction and excavation industry in the KC Metro Area through a unified single voice.  This includes relationship building with local municipalities and utility owners, advocacy for more favorable state/municipal laws and regulations that impact the utility and excavation industry, advancement of the industry with future generations, training, promotion of safety, giving back to the community through charitable opportunities, and networking with fellow chapter members all with similar interests.


We’re NUCA — your fellow Kansas and Missouri excavators and wet/dry utility contractors.  Working together to protect our companies and foster opportunities among us.  Giving “voice” to our unique sector and the vital excavation and infrastructure work we do here. View photos.

Join us. With your company on board, our collective “voice” grows stronger.  As we advocate for a more favorable business climate for us all. Valuable networking too.  More.

OUR MISSION: Protect and advance the KC region’s excavation & utility construction.


NUCA KC works closely with NUCA National's lobbyist who works hard to ensure that members have a voice in local government.


NUCA’s Kansas City team keeps an eye on stae and the regulatory agencies’ activities, teams up with coalitions that serve our industry and the business community generally, and rallies support when a threat or an opportunity looms.


Safety is a top priority for NUCA. Members can take advantage of training programs and consulting on both the local and national level.
