Working Together To Meet Our Client’s Goals.
A Philosophy of Partnership
Through a team approach, we ensure crucial communication between owners, architects, construction managers, contractors, and their teams. This method enables us to stay on schedule, avoid miscommunication, and reduce the risk of exceeding our client’s budget.
From Start to Finish.
Our General Contractor services are second to none in the commercial & construction industry. Our proven experience, networks, and systems ensure a smooth construction process for all involved and deliver a superior experience for owners, sub contractors, architects, and engineers alike.
Managing costs without sacrificing function, aesthetics, and most importantly quality, is our highest value in every phase of general contracting. Based on the plans and specifications provided by owners, architects, and engineers, we guarantee our competitive edge by utilizing a broad base of qualified subcontractors and suppliers to assist in preparing the final bid. Our contracting services include:
- Ensuring job site safety
- Soliciting qualified subcontractors for competitive bidding
- Subcontractor scheduling & quality oversight
- Code requirement & compliance oversight
- Material purchasing & equipment scheduling
- Managing construction waste & recycling
Planning. Preparing. Producing.
As experienced construction managers we know that all the preliminary work is as important as the building phase. We take the time on the front end to coordinate and provide all aspects of the preconstruction phase necessary for the success of a project. We provide a wide range of construction management services for owners, architects, and their teams including:
- Conceptual budgets and estimating
- Architectural & Engineering development and documents
- Constructibility reviews
- Code review and coordination
- Infrastructure and utility review and coordination
- Preliminary planning and scheduling
- Cost analysis and value engineering
During actual construction we oversee and supervise the overall construction process to assure that the facility is constructed in strict conformance with the plans, specifications, and all required codes and regulations while maintaining timely, accurate and complete contract administration.

I wanted to write and say thank you and how pleased I am with the services you have provided Good Samaritan Hospital. The work has been top quality, your staff is excellent and you are willing to do whatever it takes to meet our needs. I have been in facility management over 17 years and have never received the amount of unsolicited compliments, from my customers about a contractor, as I do with your firm.

Thanks Art. I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for the work you and Krause Construction did for our two projects. Your team is very good to work with and hope in the future we will be able to partner again.

Thanks so much for looking into and correcting the recent situation we had. As soon as you found out you handled it right away. You could have made things much more difficult, but because you have integrity and honor, you saw something was wrong and you righted it. These days it is getting harder and harder to find these qualities. Dan, you are a class act and I thank you.
— Andy Lambeta, Professional Decorating & Painting, Inc.

A sincere thank you to the Krause team.

Thank you for helping us get this problem corrected so rapidly and successfully.
