KSW Construction: Madison, Milwaukee, and Verona, WI
Commercial Building Contractors & Construction Company

KSW Construction provides commercial construction services in and around Madison, Green Bay, Verona, and the Milwaukee area. Chances are that you’ve eaten in restaurants, shopped in stores, and / or driven by many buildings we’ve been the commercial contractors for. With an extensive history as a local commercial construction company, our philosophy includes providing the absolute best service at every phase of your project. As your full-service industrial and commercial contractor, you can rely on us to help you bring your vision to live, offering quality and value through every phase of your project.

Our Philosophy

Our clients know from the onset of every project that we're committed to providing the best service possible through all phases of construction. We also understand a building reflects the brand of a company, and our team works diligently to make sure a client's brand and culture play a big part in the structure's design. That means before any planning or construction begins, we sit down with clients and do whatever it takes to make sure we understand your project goals. From the very first meeting to moving in, we know we're not successful unless our clients are. We see our dealings with every client as more than a simple contractor/client relationship - we view it as a true partnership.

Full-Service Industrial and Commercial Contractor

Our experience in the Madison area means we understand the problems facing clients seeking to build in the region. We've worked with dozens of clients in the Madison area and are now expanding to the Verona area as well. Our new headquarters is conveniently located off Hwy M at Exit 79, and we expect to expand our service capabilities and help even more clients achieve their building project goals.

Clients are a Big Part of the Construction Process

The KSW Construction team cares about your vision of the project. That means we take every precaution to ensure that vision is achieved. At the same time, we know every client has a budget and timeline they need to adhere to, and we do everything possible to make sure every project stays on track, saving clients both time and money. Throughout the process, we'll be here to answer your questions and handle any problems that develop. To make it easier for our clients, we view the building project as a three stage process.

Stage One:
Taking Your Vision and Bringing it to Life


At this point, you, the architect and engineer, along with our team of contractors work together. We explore your proposed budget to get an idea of what we can accomplish. If you're planning on leasing, we'll need to get an idea of the total space being used by both your company and any tenants. We'll try to incorporate as much of your wish list as we can while still sticking to the budget.

Stage Two:
Going Through the Bidding Process


Here's where we find out if the project is feasible as outlined in the planning stage. While our early involvement will most likely mean we'll see figures in line with our (and your) expectations. If any revisions are needed, we walk clients through the process to ensure none of the changes negatively impact the project objectives.

Stage Three:
We Build Your Dream


This is where all of the planning really shows. The KSW Construction team monitors every step of the construction and keeps you, our client, informed of the project's progress. Our goal is to make sure the project is completed on time and within budget. Of course, the project must also meet all of your expectations.

Every step of the process is important, and we're always available to answer any questions. You'll also have a single person to contact if any problems develop or if you just want to know how things are going on a specific day.

This effort took careful planning, extensive organization, and timely workmanship to accomplish such a difficult task. Doug Slaby and Craig Hoernke of KSW were terrific, and we hold KSW in high regard for their services. ”
    ~Robert LoBreglio, Vice President, Great Dane Pub and Brewing Company, Madison, WI
