Homegrown Success

Construction Contractor in Kansas City


Kissick Construction Company is Kansas City’s construction contractor, founded in 1994 by Lloyd J. “Jim” Kissick III and Pete Browne. They began this firm with a commitment to provide quality service to their Kansas City client base.

Celebrating its 30th year of experience, Kissick Construction is diverse in its scope of work, from initial demolition, rough grading, and site utilities to structural concrete and flatwork.

Pete and Jim founded Kissick Construction on the belief that success is a result of treating others fairly and with respect, hiring and retaining talented people, and never saying “we can’t” to a client. The firm has grown to manage projects as large as $100 million with almost 400 employees, and has earned a strong reputation for innovatively solving  construction challenges.

Quality / Enthusiasm / Safety / Technology / Equipment

With Kissick Construction on your team, you’ll never have to worry about accountability and can be assured your project will be completed on time, within budget, and with the highest quality.


We come to work every day with a passion for solving our clients’ problems, doing exceptional work, and improving the communities in which we work in meaningful and long-lasting ways. Working toward results we can be proud of is not only fulfilling, it’s a culture we’ve built within our company, and something we strive to do on each project, big or small.


Following safety protocols is part of our core culture, as the wellbeing of our team members and partners is paramount on all job sites. This safety culture is both longstanding and effective, as shown by our excellent safety performance.


Kissick keeps pace with current technology for more accurate planning, and to allow our partners ease of collaboration and access to realtime information on job progress. Our project managers, superintendents, and foremen utilize tablets with the most up-to-date software to sync the office and the field together. Our talented group of surveyors ensure maximum accuracy for our estimators and field teams with the most advanced survey and take off equipment in the industry.


As a self-performing construction contractor in Kansas City, Kissick stays within our client’s budgets by efficiently maintaining a fleet of over 300 pieces of equipment, many of which utilize GPS/GIS to control and track location, depth, & excavated volume.

Our 24,000 square foot facility also allows us to service this fleet with minimal down time.

Our Pillars

Our three pillars support everything we do.

Relationships are our Strongest Foundation

From demolition and moving earth to finish-grading and landscaping, Kissick can bring together the many different disciplines required to prepare a site for the next stage of construction.

Innovation Fuels Our Ingenuity

Kissick Construction team members utilize their expertise and years of experience working on similar scopes to strategize unique approaches. Many times these end up as value engineered solutions, saving our clients time in their schedules, and money in their budgets.

Determination in Challenging Environments

The greater the challenge, the greater the opportunity. Kissick has a reputation for successfully managing risks. We prosper in complex construction environments by leveraging the ingenuity and dedication of our personnel: tough, smart people who take pride in succeeding despite challenges.
