St. Louis, MO, – General contracting firm KAI Build celebrates almost 3 years in Kansas City with a new, expanded office and warehouse at 13313 W 98th St. in Lenexa, Kansas — more than double the size of its previous location at 9900 Pflumm Road.
Over the course of its nearly three years in Kansas City, KAI Build has continued to experience steady growth in terms of projects and staff. KAI Build has progressively expanded its staff over the last two and a half years and currently has 13 employees working out of its Kansas City office, including two project managers, six superintendents, three carpenters, one laborer and a senior project assistant.
With its current success, the KAI Build Kansas City division is booked through the end of the year with current and future projects. These include the remodel of existing Target stores in St. Louis and Kansas City and the remodel of a distribution center in Topeka, Kansas and a new store in Fort Collins, Colorado. Additionally, KAI Build is constructing the Kansas City International Airport Terminal Modernization TI Project, among other projects.
KAI Build shares its new location with sister company The UP Companies and its divisions Power UP Electrical Contractors, Square UP Builders and Hustle UP Laborers. KAI also has access to architects, MEP engineers and construction managers through parent company KAI Enterprises’ divisions KAI Design, KAI Engineering and KAI 360 Construction Services.
“We can self-perform most of the work with our sister companies and design/build divisions, which means we can be more cost-effective and efficient for our customers,” said Joe Brown, Senior Project Manager for KAI Build in Kansas City. “Also, KAI is made up of a diverse group of individuals who offer different perspectives that help lead us to faster resolutions and outperform other companies.”
