Since 1999, our engineering company, K. H. Davis Engineering Consultants Ltd (Architectural Home Designers and Consulting Structural Engineers) has been providing Structural Engineering Design, Home Design, and Project Management Services on all types of buildings for Architects, Contractors, and Private Clients.
Following a huge demand for our Project Management services, we started KH Davis Construction to serve our design clients during the construction phase of their projects.
Each year, we take on approximately 15 construction projects of varying size and complexity. Through our sister company, K H Davis Construction Ltd, we are able to ensure that the construction of somewhat more complicated projects is carried out correctly and in accordance with our the proper design intent.
Our projects are managed by Mr. Ken Davis, P. Eng., and our sub-contractors are handpicked from an experienced group of contractors that we have developed relationships with over the past 15 years.
One Stop Shopping!
A large proportion of our clients are busy professionals who would prefer to deal with one firm from start-to-finish – this is one of the benefits of coming to K.H. Davis for a comprehensive design and construction package. The other benefit is that your project will be supervised by a Consulting Engineering Firm that specializes in the design and construction of single family homes.
This does not rule-out the do-it-yourself Contractor as one of our Clients. Rather, we are regularly asked to carry out all of the structural related work on a home renovation project so that our client can act as their own Contractor for all of the non-structural finishing work. It is the finishing work which is generally more easily carried out by a homeowner or a small neighborhood Contractor.
In this regard, many General Contractors prefer NOT to do the heavy structural components of home renovation projects, and they like the fact that they can come to K.H. Davis Engineering Consultants Ltd for the structural engineering of the new beams for a project AND have us actually install those beams (under KH Davis Construction Ltd)
K. H. Davis Engineering Consultants Ltd can take care of all of the Engineering, Design, Permitting, and Construction Supervision aspects of your work, while KH Davis Construction Ltd can act as your Builder and Project Manager.
Regardless of the scope of work that you require, one Project Manager takes care of all of your design and construction needs, and serves as the single point-person responsible for the execution of your project.
Conflict of Interest
Since we are Professional Engineers, we are careful to avoid any perceived conflict of interest between the “construction” part of our work, and the “construction supervision” part of our work. We recognize that our role as a home design consultant or as a structural engineering consultant must never be compromised by the financial pressures of the contracting business; and it is for this reason that we have two, independent (but related) companies involved in all of our design-build projects. We always invite our design clients to obtain competitive quotations from other construction companies for the work that we design, and we are happy to provide our clients with “just design”, or “just construction” services on their projects.
