The end result is a career that is constantly changing, projects that are forever teaching me new lessons, and experiences that are unique and fulfilling. I am truly blessed with the opportunity to embark on a new journey with Killian Construction Company.”

Duane Prewitt
Senior Vice President

“I enjoy my role in estimating because I am able to be involved in most projects in the early design stages, sometimes even at the conceptual stage. I also enjoy working with a wide range of construction professionals, but the best part of my job is the satisfaction I get when I drive past a project our company built and know that I had a role in its construction.”

“One of the greatest rewards from being a part of the construction industry is placing quality work in a safe manner and knowing you were an important part of the construction team that has built a Project that all can admire for years to come. Another great reward is the relationships you develop and friendships you make with Owners, Design Professionals and the great men and women that work in this industry. One of the biggest challenges and enjoyments is being a successful problem solver. I always say if you don’t like today’s problems wait till tomorrow, you will get a whole new set of them.”

OUR HISTORY

OldPhotoKillian Construction Co. was founded in 1948 by Robert G. Killian. From that time until 1992, the firm grew from a small home builder to a respectable sized construction firm that averaged approximately $25 million in revenue each year. In 1992, William F. Killian bought the company from his family and began to transition the company into the larger scale General Contractor that it is today.

William F. Killian is a true visionary who has always believed in the future of information technology and modernization of the construction world. Due to the industry and client demand our company has grown to nearly $200 million in yearly revenue and an Engineering News-Record (ENR) Top 400 firm consistently delivering quality construction from coast to coast.

We have completed projects in 28 states and counting. The majority of growth has been attributed to our mission statement that clients, architects, and subcontractors can embrace; "Killian Construction Co. provides an extraordinary construction project experience. We lead, inspire, and reward team members by sustaining success built on our partnerships."

Killian Construction Co. is among the most experienced construction firms in the United States. We strive to create long lasting, repeat business relationships with its clients by serving their needs and by delivering on promises. In an industry in which demand changes constantly, we have profited by looking for win-win solutions.
