" Working with KALCON to build my dream brew pub was a very enjoyable experience. From the day we met, until we were open for business I knew I could trust and count on KALCON to get the job done. They had many good sub contractors that they dealt with on a regular basis and knew how to get them to prioritize our project. We had a complete overhaul of a large existing building, and they got it done in just 4 months. Justin Youngbluth was especially good at his job coordinating the myriad of different subcontractors, and when he couldn't find a sub to do it in the right time frame and for the right price, he went ahead and did it himself. Bottom line is KALCON did a great job and they did it on a short timeline. They hit the expected completion date, were within budget, and the place looks amazing. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to rehab or build new." Brennan Greene, Brewmaster/Owner

"KALCON was everything you expect and deserve in a general contractor. We had a complex remodel which included a total redesign of our facility, installation of a commercial kitchen, a lift, dining and office space. From the planning to the demolition and rebuild, through the day we received our new keys, KALCON walked beside us to ensure that our dream facility was realized."

"We knew that the task at hand was monumental. We knew that every hand on deck was critical. The KALCON team jumped right in and proved that our confidence was well placed. Your team definitely succeeded in providing a fantastic new Club House, Bar, and Restaurant that we are definentely proud of. Your ability to calmly navigate the myriad code requirements, to deftly "nudge" the subcontractors along, to assist us with value added propositions all added to our total satisfaction with our professional construction management services."

"We really enjoyed working with KALCON when building our new Hola Arepa restaurant. They were honest and great to work with. They were willing to work on our limited budget, and gave us advice when we had questions. They worked hard to meet deadlines and stay within the time frame of our project. Whenever there were any issues, setbacks, or problems, they worked quickly to resolve them. Working on a build-out can be stressful, but KALCON makes it easier by being positive, dependable and trustworthy. They were great people to work with, and we hope to use them again when we have more projects in the future.

"The build-out of our space in Downtown Saint Paul was my first experience with commercial construction. I found that working with KALCON was a great and enjoyable experience, which is hard to say when faced with the issues of construction. I selected KALCON after reviewing multiple bids, and chose them for their honest open book policy, aggressive pricing that was within our desired budget, their willingness to offer alternate design options to save money, and their team-oriented approach. They were up front and honest about the process and ensured that I understood the progress of the construction at each weekly meeting. This helped us work together as a team on design issues to stay within budget. The open book process was a refreshing way to do business, allowing me to see where the money was going while understanding the multiple bids that were coming in on various items. I will definitely be choosing KALCON for Tin Whiskers' next brewery sometime in the future."
