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 good reputation for its attention to detail, excellent craftsmanship and for creating homes with enduring value and classic tropical island 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 provides 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 local family. With the family’s children returning back from the mainland, the family wanted to expand and maximize their home without sacrificing the space of their beautiful landscape.


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 design, drafting, drawing, permitting and construction. It was such a smooth process and delightful experience for the homeowners. By listening to the homeowner’s needs, the company also recommended different plans and building solutions. They liked having the company’s professional input to help them through it all.

Kai Ridge’s project manager utilized his engineering background to study the feasibility of the land to propose the best use for it. The foundation of the proposed house required excavation of its original retaining wall. The project manager recommended a solution to the homeowner that would allow them to maximize the house space.

Interiorly, the company designed the kitchen with a dark, real-wood finishing and high wall cabinets; unique, sophisticated lighting features; a contemporary refrigerator paired with a two-sided pantry that gave lots of storage room; granite counter-tops with a full backsplash to accent the beauty of the natural stone; a 36-inch island and entire piece of granite that flowed together and naturally divided the kitchen and living room; and a wall-mounted microwave that matched the dishwasher.


The modern, country style kitchen paired well with the hardwood flooring. The modern and contemporary theme was utilized throughout the interior of the house. Kai Ridge also purposely added trim into the frame of the window so that the owners could have a mountain view from their kitchen. By the end of the project, the company had finished the home within the agreed timeframe.

More than 50 percent of Kai Ridge’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’s recent residential development project of eight houses at Wilhelmina Rise also demonstrates its expertise in luxury residential houses.
