Our clients come from all sectors; industrial, governmental, institutional, and private business.

Kalleward’s project experience is just as diverse as our customers, with construction projects ranging from small office interior remodeling to the large multi-story industrial and institutional buildings seen throughout the region.

In addition to a multi-faceted background with a wide variety of construction projects, the type of services offered by Kalleward Group has also grown beyond the general construction disciplines.  We have now extended to our clients such services as construction management and design/build.

With a greater emphasis on project quality control and project delivery, we realize the benefits to our clients of the design/build method of project delivery.  By providing our customers with a single source of construction management, we can assist with the fulfillment of their building needs as well as their budgetary constraints.

Development is another area in which the Kalleward Group has expanded, offering clients a complete turnkey style of construction.  This includes assisting our clients in land acquisition, development and investment analysis for their facility management and growth.
