About Kelley Construction

Holding our Industry to a Higher Standard

Kelley Construction is America’s new culture of construction. Innovation starts with the confidence and expertise to handle even the most challenging projects, and the commitment to see each one through to completion with excellence and enthusiasm. It also demands that we never cut corners and that we always take a relationship-first approach toward our clients and our team. 

 

It’s why we have the best talent, the latest technology, and why our clients won’t go anywhere else for their building needs. That’s the Kelley culture of construction.

Our overall experience with Kelley Construction was outstanding. The attention to detail, the level of communication and the overall finished product exceeded our high expectations. We would absolutely recommend Kelley Construction!"

Scott Neff
Glenview Trust Company

The entire team from Kelley Construction was fantastic to work with – both job site and office personnel. The team was very responsive to any of our questions....You will find the values of their owners and senior leadership live throughout the organization...and they show that by providing honesty and integrity throughout the process, from estimating the job to final walk through. We are exceptionally pleased with our new clubhouse and the quality of the workmanship. If I had another building to build or renovate, I would not hesitate to hire Kelley Construction again!”
