Kenn has professional experience in the design and construction of corporate, civic, healthcare, residential, federal and state projects for an array of public and private sector clients.
With projects ranging from $100,000 to $18,000,000 every project gets the same attention no matter the size. Each project is important to that client.

Many of the firm's clients return for subsequent projects because of quality of design and the attention they received. Kenn is organized and is proactive in the design and construction aspects of a project.
