You Run Your Business -
We'll Handle The Rest
We understand that a construction, renovation or expansion project can be daunting, especially when you have a business to run. That's why we provide an array of services - from zoning, permitting and design to pricing, budgeting and construction - so you stay focused on your business, and we stay focused on you.

Let's get started

Pre-Engineered Buildings

We specialize in the construction of pre-engineered buildings. Designed from glass, wood, stucco, architectural metal, brick and stone, pre-engineered buildings are nearly 50% less expensive than traditional structures, are easier and faster to build and provide the flexibility to easily expand. In 2009, KACIN won the national Behlen Building Systems' Building of The Year.

Green Building

Green building is an environmentally responsible, resource-efficient and economically beneficial approach to construction. In addition to lowering utility bills and increasing property values, this sustainable building approach is designed for durability and longevity. Whether you want to a structure with "green features" or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, KACIN will make it happen.
