About KDW

A Dynamic Full-Service
Design/Build Firm

What began as a three-man partnership has matured into a dynamic, full-service design/build that we proudly call Kingham Dalton Wilson, Ltd. (KDW). With over 115 years combined experience, KDW's three partners have successfully completed over 2,000 projects. As each project is unique, the partners have honed their ability to solve problems while still delivering successful projects on time and on budget. This vast experience has allowed us to develop a method which makes the complex design/build concept simple for our clients-a process that helps our clients do what they do best while we design, build, and develop a facility to their exact specifications.

SINGLE-SOURCE EFFICIENCY

KDW is headquartered in Houston, Texas and serves both domestic and international clients. As a full-service commercial and industrial construction company, KDW is your one-stop-shop for development, design, and construction services. We help companies recognize exact costs, minimize risk, and expedite project completion on their new, expanded, or renovated commercial and industrial facilities. Our innovative design/build services are customized to meet your exact needs, resulting in a seamless project experience-from sourcing and developing land, designing and building your structure, through move-in and post-occupancy maintenance. KDW's single-source method eliminates the frustration of working with multiple service providers, cutting the process time in half compared to traditional design method.

Beyond Our
Relentless Drive

KDW’s main project delivery method is design/build. This option allows you to hire us under a single contract to design and construct the entire project. Our turnkey approach is structured to minimize the client’s risk and provide a more streamlined process. This integrated method combines the best practices of design and build to simplify the process and eliminate unnecessary elements.

In 2013 WIKA Process Solutions LP and GAYESCO INTERNATIONAL LCC started working with the KDW team to design & build our brand new manufacturing facility on a 13 acre lot in the Pasadena ship channel area. From start (concept & initial renderings) to finish (January 2015 moving in) the KDW team supported us in every step of the way.

People make the company.  The folks at KDW are talented, professional, friendly, and second to none.  In spite of the full book of business they keep, I never once felt like my calls were ignored, rushed, or unimportant.  Architects, project managers, superintendents.....they were all top-notch.  Our design/build experience with KDW exceeded all our expectations.

KDW built our new shop addition. They helped me with the Design and planning of the build. They did a wonderful job from the beginning to the end. I would highly recommend KDW and Rolf for any construction needs. They are a top notch company and I am proud to tell people who built our building and very proud of our new shop.

When Goya realized the need for a large facility capable of heavy production, we knew KDW would be our designs/builder and Houston would be our home. This is our second project in 6 years with KDW and the Goya team considers the KDW team part of our extended family."

Evelio Fernandez

Vice President

Goya Foods

We could not have picked a better partner, to help us in establishing a productive plant in SW Houston. KDW met with us several times, to develop an understanding of our needs. Once understood, they incorporated our proven program with their local knowledge of Municipality, available Materials, Sub Contractors, and other Project Management Guidance.
