Confidence Starts With Expertise

Confidence starts with the expertise to handle even the most challenging projects, and the commitment to see each one through to completion with excellence and enthusiasm. Trust is earned through hard work and dedication to the customer – proved by a substantial number of repeat customers. Integrity demands that we never cut corners, and that we are always transparent with our clients. This philosophy enables us to maintain solid relationships with existing clients, even as we grow and take on new challenges. These relationships have allowed us to grow into a national, multi-division firm providing quality and excellence in construction.

Kelley Culture

The culture at any company begins with the people you choose to be on the team. You have to create a culture with intention. And through three generations, we have done that at Kelley Construction.

When choosing teammates for our company, we place one quality above all: compatibility.

So what does compatibility look like to us?

People whose passion for building runs deep

Construction is more than a job. It is a calling to serve your community and the nation at large. We meet every situation and challenge with integrity and transparency because it's our passion.

People committed to a culture of trust and mutual respect

Our people value and embody respect at all times. When we treat our clients and our work with respect, it spills over into everything we do.

People who value each other and the skills we all bring to the table

It’s teamwork that makes Kelley the New Culture of Construction, and we wouldn’t be where we are without the individual talent and contributions of each and every member.

People who are proactive about safety both onsite and offsite

Safety awareness is an integral component of any endeavor that we undertake. We are all more than the job or position we have at work. Home life feeds work life and vice versus. A positive, balanced relationship between the two keeps you safe in both.

Our relationship-focused culture is the reason our community continues to flourish.

If this sounds like you, we’d love for you to join our team.
