A&K is unique in that we have an in-house architect, engineers, construction superintendents and project managers to facilitate the design/build process.
Design-build is a method of project delivery with the emphasis ultimately on project performance. For our clients, this has meant timely project completion at a lower cost. Fundamentally, design-build embraces architecture/engineering and construction services under a single contract, thereby integrating the roles of designer, and constructor. Because there is a single point of responsibility, the ability to manage risk is improved and because A&K believes firmly in the partnering concept, we emphasize the importance of the owner, architect, contractor and supplier functioning as a team. The consistency afforded by the approach is beneficial in completion of the project on schedule, within budget, and in accordance with plans and specifications to meet the specific needs of each client.
DESIGN With a LEED credentialed Professional
A&K has trained its professionals to design with an eye on being environmentally friendly. To that end, our designers take continuing education classes with the Green Building Certification Institute to maintain compliance and discover new ways to design “Green”.
A&K has experience with a variety of construction sites and types including those in the areas of medical, commercial, retail, industrial, religious, residential, and education projects. The results of our ingenuity in these varied applications are the construction of modern educational institutions, sophisticated health care facilities, contemporary religious environments, office spaces, industrial manufacturing facilities and warehousing complexes.
With regard to every project, A&K takes a thoughtful, concerned approach to craftsmanship, cost control, layout and design and structure longevity. Toward that end, A&K project managers carefully plan and analyze every facet of your construction project from the origin of blueprints to handing over the keys to a finished project. Our goal is to completely satisfy our clients.
A&K provides best-in-class construction management services to successfully complete your projects on time and within budget. Our proven experience helps us operate as an integral part of our customers’ team. We manage your money as diligently as if it were our own.

They are highly qualified and responsive steel professionals that are proud of what they erect. Our crew team approach allows each of our steel crew team members the opportunity to know each other well.
