“I found [KBE] to the perfect retail contractor who builds relationships and fosters teamwork with owners, architects/engineers and their subcontractors alike. If your project requires the ‘A-Team’, then working with KBE is the ideal choice. They exemplify a contractor who does indeed ‘walk-the-walk and talk-the-talk’. I found that KBE was proactive and creative in their problem-solving, their senior management showed integrity and personal involvement,…and had a fantastic attitude and acted in a very professional manner throughout the project.” - Kevin M.
