Why Work with KasCon

KasCon provides unparalleled experience, proactive leadership and diligent oversight for every project, no matter its size or its complexity. We thrive on unique, complex and time-sensitive projects.

KasCon Partnership

Partnership

As partners in your success, our job goes well beyond the hard construction. We take a comprehensive look at every project and every detail to make sure that your process is smooth and stress-free, and your results are exactly what you want but with fewer surprises and unexpected changes.

Proactive Problem Solving

We review and analyze every project before work begins to identify, anticipate and solve potential issues before they emerge. We ask hard questions and then explore all options to find the most efficient and effective solutions. This might include permitting, lease or purchase concerns, code challenges, utilities, equipment, furniture or cabling. And, contrary to industry norms, KasCon doesn’t believe that change orders are inevitable. We work hard to minimize them. In fact, less than 2% of all change orders have been initiated by KasCon over our 20+ year history.

The result? More savings, faster projects and greater confidence in knowing that the project is moving forward as planned and on-time, without unnecessary obstacles.

Proven Success

KasCon has been managing complex construction projects in the mid-Atlantic region since 1999. Our record of success, financial stability, strong working capital and bonding capacity means that no matter the economic climate or changing circumstances of a project, we’ll be here until the work is fully completed.

Our Principles and Beliefs

Executive Involvement

A KasCon executive is intimately involved in every project and is always available to the client, providing experienced oversight and ensuring results exceed expectations.

Transparency

We provide straightforward, honest and timely communication. Even if an item is complex or sensitive, we make sure there is mutual understanding.

Personal and Timely Communication

When you call our office during business hours, you’ll talk to a person, not an automated system. We respond to your calls and emails in hours not days. You matter to us. We’ll keep you informed throughout the entire project, and we’re always available to answer questions or talk through your ideas or concerns.

Single Contact

A dedicated project manager is assigned to each project from start to finish. This gives you a known, single point-of-contact from the initial concept estimate to closeout. This continuity results in more efficient communication, less time lost on hand-offs between departments and a fuller understanding of the projects’ history, nuances and your specific needs.

Doing the Right Thing

If a problem emerges, the KasCon team tackles it with a sense of urgency and brings it to a quick resolution. We maintain such long-standing relationships with our clients by doing what’s right and make sure what needs to get done is done – not just sticking to the “contractor role.”

Loyalty and Respect

KasCon focuses on building excellent relationships with our subcontractors. We believe in treating them fairly, paying them quickly and rewarding their work – all resulting in superior project staffing and high-quality, reliable work for our clients.

Leadership

Jeff Kassman

President

“It is more rewarding to just do a little extra, reach outside our job description and contribute more.”

Jeff Kassman

President

Jeff has over 30 years of professional construction experience. Starting on drywall and carpentry crews, he moved into roles as Project Manager, General Manager and Chief Operator Officer at other firms before founding KasCon in 1999.

Jeff continually pushes the limits of what you might expect from a typical general contractor and has earned a reputation for going above and beyond – delving into design, leasing and other aspects of projects. By doing so, Jeff is better able to understand the needs and motivations of his clients and can offer proactive suggestions as to how to improve the entire real estate transaction process to better meet his client’s goals. Instead of just “managing construction,” Jeff represents his client’s interests in all aspects of a project.

This tenet has become the cornerstone of the KasCon culture and is how all KasCon employees and subcontractors work.

Jeff has a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland at College Park.

Peter B. Tracy

Executive Vice President

“KasCon is different. We do more for our clients than a typical contractor. ”

Peter B. Tracy

Executive Vice President

Peter brings extensive experience, knowledge and ability to every KasCon project. He was a Project Manager, Vice President, and General Manager for other mid-Atlantic firms before joining KasCon as a partner in 1999.

Peter has an intense commitment to client satisfaction, personnel motivation and keeping a project on schedule, while his calm demeanor provides clients with a sense of comfort and confidence.

Peter fosters repeat business opportunities. By identifying and satisfying the unique needs of his clients, Peter turns a single job into a series of projects and long- standing relationships – a true testament to KasCon’s success.

Henry M. Brown

Executive Vice President

“A key to our success is our focus on relationships; with clients, partners, and subcontractors.”

Henry M. Brown

Executive Vice President | Director of Construction

With over 40 years of construction experience, Henry brings a unique blend of field savvy, industry knowledge and technical abilities to KasCon’s clients. Through 12 years of direct field supervision, Henry has detailed knowledge of all trades and has applied that knowledge over 20 years of successful project management.

Working for both large and small firms, Henry started as a Carpenters Apprentice, advancing to become a Foreman, Field Supervisor, Project Manager and Senior Manager before he joined KasCon as Vice President. Our clients benefit from his excellent field management skills, organizational abilities, and expert understanding of construction schedules.

Community Involvement

KasCon believes that contributing to our community is an integral part of running a successful business. Through donations and volunteering, KasCon supports the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center and Dream Builders.
