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.

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.
