By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: RemodelRenovating

Kai Ridge Hawaii Construction is Hawaii’s premier builder specializing in residential Design-Build homes, as well as commercial projects. With years of building experience, the company has a reputation for its attention to detail, excellent craftsmanship and for creating homes with enduring value and unique style.

Kai Ridge’s company culture is committed to creating homes with exceptional quality. It has professional experts on the team. Their passion and integrity in building has gained the trust of clients, peer contractors and trade subcontractors.

Design-Build is a new concept, which has become more popular among homeowners than the Design-Bid-Build project. It allows homeowners to be in control of the project alongside the professional builder. As a Design-Build contractor, the company handles architectural service, designing, engineering and construction.

It is able to provide a one-stop shopping experience to its customers and sets a fixed contract amount to the homeowners without any surprising hidden costs at the end. These contracts allow homeowners to build their dream home without any unexpected cost or budget overrun. Kai Ridge will perform a thorough project site assessment, research efforts to help homeowners strictly control the budget and take risks during the construction, such as unforeseen conditions or design changes.

Recently, Kai Ridge worked on a Design-Build house for a young couple. In working together with the architect and project manager/ engineer, the owners were very satisfied with their new home. The owners said that they were happy that the company helped them from designing, drafting, drawing, permitting and construction.

They liked the project manager — who has an engineering background and can solve a lot of field problems. It was such a smooth process and delightful experience for the homeowners. By listening to the homeowner’s needs, Kai Ridge also recommended different plans and building solutions. They liked having the company’s professional input to help them through it all.

The construction of the project was not that easy, and there were many obstacles. In order to let the homeowners fully utilize the space, Kai Ridge needed to excavate the retaining wall, which was harder than what was estimated, since there were some hard volcano rocks underneath. There also was unforeseen factors that the company anticipated, so the project manager worked with the fieldwork to solve the problem. The homeowners were very satisfied with Kai Ridge’s quick problem solving ability.

In addition to the technical construction/engineering skills, Kai Ridge was also able to utilize its intrinsic artistic sense to recommend/ design the interior features. This particular client wanted a modern looking house, so the company had recommended more contemporary materials, such as flat panel solid wood cabinets.

Kai Ridge also purposely added trim into the frame of the window, as well as the entire living room, so that the owners could have a more sophisticated interior look. On top of the design and construction quality, and within the given time frame, the company had finished the project on time.

More than 50 percent of the company’s existing business is from repeat or referral clients. Kai Ridge not only meets the industry standards, but also goes above and beyond to ensure that the projects reflect the company’s brand and culture. Kai Ridge Hawaii’s recent residential development project of eight houses at Wilhelmina Rise also demonstrated its expertise in luxury residential houses.
