How we will grow?
“We wanted a building that would last 100 years: Key Builders helped us reach our goal.”
Phil Kaufman, administrator at Greenfield Assisted Living, was one of the primary contacts with Key Builders when his facility contracted the firm in 2007 for a $3.4 million addition.
“When Key Builders is involved, clients see what they’re paying for.”
Dave Mitchell of Mitchell Associates Architects has worked with Key Builders for more than ten years on design-build commercial and industrial construction projects.
“They saved us in so many different ways. They saved us money. They saved us time. They saved us heartache.”
When the Abiding Word Church of Princeton, Illinois, decided to build a new facility, they partnered with Key Builders’ design-build construction management services to create a church that would inspire.
“They will do everything they can to keep projects moving according to schedule.”
In 2006, Key Builders won a $1.2 million contract for the construction of Prophets Riverview Independent Living, a 24,000 sq. ft. assisted living facility in Prophetstown, Illinois. CADM Architecture was so pleased with its relationship with Key Builders and Key Builders’ work that the firm invited Key Builders to go on the road to Lodi, Wisconsin, to complete another assisted living construction project.
We’ll partner with you fairly and honestly. We’ll build relationships based on honesty, trust, and credibility.
We have an impressive depth of staff, providing excellent fieldwork, outstanding management and breadth of experience.
You’ll be our most important client. You’ll see that your project will be more than just another job to us. We’ll be a trusted business partner that you’ll view as an extension of your own organization. We’ll build great relationships with both the owner and the architect so we’ll work together as a team to construct a quality building.
Architects often report that Key Builders “made my job easier,” because we work as a partner with the owner and the architect, building long-term, win-win relationships during the design and construction process. We are a sophisticated firm experienced in partnering with architects, and we know how to manage paperwork and documentation that architects require. When it comes to your local contracting community, we know how to seek out the best, regardless of where projects are located.
You’ll never wonder what’s going on at the construction site. We’ll keep you informed with clear, scheduled written and verbal communication. At our weekly meetings, we’ll answer any question you have, whether about process, status, or cost.
We’ll create and seek out value. Through value engineering, we’ll help you save tens of thousands of dollars in construction costs. Our buildings cost less to construct and are completed in less time. Our innovative solutions help reduce the cost of ownership, operation and maintenance. And we’ll always be up-front about cost before work is executed.
Our construction process will provide you with clear choices in service providers, greater control over your project, and no surprises. We’ll offer multiple perspectives, because we work with a portfolio of more than 40 architects, the best subcontractors in your area, and respected financing entities.
We’ll pride ourselves on being on scope, on time, and on budget, every time. We’ll hire exceptional contractors, and if a problem ever arises, we’ll be there to take care of it, no questions asked. We’ll strive to do all work right the first time, because rework costs money.
Key Builders will work around your schedule and needs. We’ll help you keep your business open during construction, and our contractors will be respectful of the needs of your business.
