    Estimating and staying within project budgets during construction and excellent problem solving are just a few areas that their project managers take personally. Because of KSW’s strong project team leadership our clients are happy and our projects are successful.

  • “ The Great Dane made a commitment to be part of the newly renovated Hilldale Mall last summer. Knowing that we had a late start, it was critical for us to be open in early December for the busy Holiday shopping season. While many said it wasn’t possible, KSW made a commitment to complete our construction by December 3rd, and actually delivered a day early. This effort took careful planning, extensive organization, and timely workmanship to accomplish such a difficult task. Doug Slaby and Craig Hoernke of KSW were terrific, and we hold KSW in high regard for their services. ”
