Conceptual Building Design

From Sketch to Schematic

From Sketch to Schematic

Conceptual Building Design is a process that starts with an initial idea and propels a project forward. We often begin with a starting point as simple as a "napkin sketch" to initiate a dialog, which then pushes the rough concept toward a schematic layout.

At KDW, we prefer Live-Design programming with our clients in the room. This allows us to design from the inside-out using what we call Lego-Blocks to represent the various departments, components and future growth. This arrangement helps us to solidify the size of the structure and study the process flows. It's important to remember that we handle the Conceptual Building Design completely in-house, so that it remains an integrated part of your larger project.

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.

KDW has worked with us on two of our facilities, and we have been more than pleased both times. Their expertise in building for companies in the manufacturing industry resulted in facilities that were optimized for our purposes, resulting in smart layouts and highly-efficient spaces. When it comes to customer service, KDW has been affordable, personable, and timely. We highly recommend KDW for your company’s design/building projects.

Working with KDW to build our state of the art High Bay/Heavy Lift Fabrication Shop was nothing short of pleasurable and professional.  Their knowledge of construction techniques is amazing and every sub-contractor that was used did impeccable work. We could not have chosen a more competent General Contractor on our million dollar expansion project.

Throughout the different phases of construction, one thing impressed us the most was your focus in honoring your commitments. Secondly, The art of making a very complex project simple is a concept you have gracefully mastered.  We not only made the right choice with KDW we found a new partner.
