Safety

Placing A Priority On Workplace Protection

Placing A Priority On Workplace Protection

Safety is an integral element emphasized in all of KDW's operations. Our safety processes utilize the TCA Safety System®, which is modeled on the global International Standards Organization's ISO 9000 Quality System methodology and aligns with, or exceeds, all recognized quality systems currently applied to safety including OHSAS 18001 and the proposed ISO 45001 standard.

Safety For All

These practices include integration of all field personnel in safety process implementation and accountability - meaning that each project team recognizes their responsibility for safety as equal to their duty to complete a client's project on time and on budget. Each superintendent owns their role as safety director for their project.

Safety Systems

KDW employs a multi-pronged approach to development and management of sustainable and scalable safety processes. This includes, but is not limited to, management commitment and direct involvement in safety leadership and accountability, a continuing education program to enhance knowledge of specific safety issues, written regulatory safety programs aligned with our discipline, short service worker programs, third-party safety observations through field audits, and managing third-party safety observations via the TCA proprietary predictive analytics software (TCA Instant!®). By using predictive analytics, KDW can identify trends before an incident or injury occurs and proactively interrupt that trend and influence safety outcomes on site. From quality systems to the latest cognitive neuroscience techniques on managing self-organizing systems - and every construction site is a self-organizing system - KDW brings state-of-the-art methodologies to both our design/build services as well as our sustainable safety practices.

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.

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."

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.
