KMW Builders was founded in 2009 by three professionals with extensive experience in construction, real estate and development.

John Kavanagh ran a successful home building company before joining Weaver Investment CEO Lee McAllister and Weaver Investment founder Mike Weaver to form a new general contracting company to focus on multi-family developments, affordable housing and other commercial projects.

Our goal is simple

To complete the project so it meets your requirements and so we exceed your expectations.

What We Do

KMW Builders focuses primarily on six types of commercial construction:

  • Multi-family
  • Affordable housing
  • Adult living communities
  • Upfits of existing commercial space
  • Rehabs of all types of multi-family communities
  • New commercial projects, including warehouse and basic retail

We typically begin a project with planning, including site analysis, design review, value engineering, budget estimates and scheduling. Our goal is to develop a plan and budget that our clients can rely on. We also work closely with architects, real estate professionals, bankers and others involved in the process.

Once construction begins, we tightly manage the entire process. These services include general contracting, construction management, safety coordination, quality control, cost containment and contract administration. KMW also has expertise in green building practices and principles and we frequently apply those to our projects.

What Makes KMW Different

Any commercial construction project involves a considerable investment of time, money and your reputation. While construction has unpredictable elements, our goal is to ensure that you’re never surprised by what we or our subcontractors do, and never surprised by the outcome.

KMW has built a reputation for high-quality workmanship and integrity — on every project, every time. From budgets and scheduling to what our professionals say in meetings and on the job site, we have a simple standard: We do what we say.

We’re proud of the long-term relationships we’ve built with clients. We hope to build that kind of relationship with you, too.

KMW Builders has completed a wide range of projects across North and South Carolina, including NCHFA, HUD, Rehab, Green Retrofit, Senior/Adult living, Multi-family, Single-family, Commercial and upfits.
