Testimonials

“We have recently completed three projects with KUE Contractors. First was our $3.5 million renovation of our Allied Health Building. The project was completed on time, under budget and met our expectations. The next two projects were done simultaneously. They consisted of interior finishing upgrade of our trades area and a new playground surface at our Day Care facility. Again, both projects were completed on time, under budget and met our expectations.”

Jason Theisen — Director of Facilities St Cloud Technical & Community College

 

“Our management company has worked with KUE Contractors over the last 15 years. During those years they have played an integral role in working with federally financed apartment buildings who received funds for rehab. Their competency with the endless paperwork involved during the rehab process was appreciated by all parties involved.

We cannot express enough the professionalism and workmanship that each employee has given us over these years. KUE Contractors will continue to be a “go to” contractor for us for years to come!”
