Commercial development requires accurate construction estimating and planning at the outset and effective project management through completion. At KPH, we believe in partnering with developers to deliver projects on time and on budget. With our own Environmental division and in-house demolition and carpentry services, KPH is ready to manage all aspects of your next development.
Every day your development isn’t open is a day you can’t bring in revenue. At KPH, we understand the tight timelines of remodeling and new construction. We start by delivering realistic accurate cost estimates for the development of budgets and pro formas. We offer a wide range of construction services, from general contracting to design/build and owner’s rep. And our expertise with historic restoration and repurposed buildings brings expertise in securing historic tax credits.
From neighborhood restaurants and hotels to office buildings and mixed-use developments, KPH delivers construction services that meet your finance model.

KPH Construction’s President Keith Harenda has been passionate about affordable housing since his time on the board of Hebron Housing Services, a non-profit that assists individuals and families struggling with homelessness. He has turned that passion into KPH’s expertise in a variety of housing projects including workforce housing, multi-family developments, student housing, and emergency shelter construction, remodeling and expansions. From environmental abatement and refurbishing to complete design/build work, KPH offers developers and non-profit organizations the complete package.
KPH also partners with developers and non-profits to identify opportunities to build safe, supportive housing in communities across Wisconsin. To ensure continual education and community collaboration, KPH leadership proudly holds graduate certificates from the first-of-its-kind Wisconsin Supportive Housing Institute created by Wisconsin Housing & Economic Development Authority (WHEDA). The program requires 80 hours of targeted training and technical assistance. While housing can be a complicated undertaking for developers, our trusted team of professionals serve as stewards of your budget, timeline, vision, and as proud partners in your project.
Historic restoration of commercial and government buildings requires a qualified team of experts. At KPH Construction, we understand the process of working with the National Park Service and state agencies to restore buildings that are recognized as historically significant. Whether you are repurposing a building into a hotel, offices, or mixed-use, KPH has the expertise to both restore and modernize these national treasures. We understand that process and protect both the structure and the valuable historic tax credits that can be realized by developers through preserving these buildings.
Today’s healthcare facilities are some of the most complex and sensitive work environments. At KPH, we understand the need to balance patient care, staff safety, and institutional budgets. We have completed time-sensitive healthcare construction and renovation projects in hospitals, urgent care facilities, and health clinics throughout the Midwest.
Our healthcare construction services focus on understanding your healthcare system’s needs and developing detailed plans and timelines to complete projects – large and small – with minimal operational disruption.
Working in active medical facilities requires a well-orchestrated effort that includes infection control, noise and vibration mitigation, emergency response protocols, and all levels of patient and staff protection.
KPH Environmental also specializes in healthcare. We offer a wide range of demolition, environmental, health, and safety services including property assessments, asbestos management, and asbestos/industrial hygiene consulting services. We believe it is important to provide healthcare systems with the personalized service each facility requires. Regulations and regulatory agency guidance have changed rapidly in recent years, and KPH has kept pace with these changes to provide healthcare clients with the best possible service.
