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.
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 long after the work is completed.
Our Principles and Beliefs
A KasCon executive is intimately involved in every project and is always available to the client, providing experienced oversight and ensuring results exceed expectations.
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.
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.
“It is more rewarding to just do a little extra, reach outside our job description and contribute more.”
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.
