Cost Control

Keeping Costs Down

Keeping Costs Down

As soon as we are involved, KDW will canvas numerous subcontractors and vendors who may qualify to provide their services to your project. We've developed substantial relationships with major subcontractors and vendors all over Texas and beyond, and each has repeatedly shown confidence in our abilities to manage and supervise any project. Subcontractor agreements could represent as much as 85% of your total project cost, so our focus is always to generate as much interest as possible for your project.

Our database of previous job costs is used to compare bidding contracts. Should the low bid be over budget, we determine where the differences are and take one of the following courses of action:

  • Request that the contractor take another look at their bid
  • Reject their bid and negotiate with the next bidder
  • Reject all bids and re-bid the division of work in question
  • Self-perform if it is within our capabilities


KDW Utilizes:

  • Timberline Estimating
  • Timberline Project Management
  • Timberline Construction Accounting


Each are designed and integrated to achieve maximum results in project management and cost control. The systems accommodate multi-user, multi-projects, and are client/server database products that help track information and documents beginning with our pre-construction services and continue through post-construction services. Once your project is estimated, it will be automatically interfaced with management and followed by accounting. With all data centrally stored and organized, we can provide real-time information for our managers and accountants to keep your project on time and within budget.

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.

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.

Jeff Olchesky

Pine Cove

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.

BAUER Equipment America

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.
