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.

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.

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."

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.

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.
