KANE Construction, Inc.

Dennis O. Kane
President and CEO

FOUNDING PRINCIPLES
KANE Construction, Inc. builds commercial and medical office interiors and life science facilities throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. The company’s founding values have remained the same since its inception: Take care of the client and do what is right, in an effort to earn a fair profit. KANE Construction is one of three Kane family businesses, along with Office Movers, Inc. and International Limousine Service, Inc. The companies operate symbiotically, but as separate legal entities.

ONBOARDING FAMILY
President and CEO Dennis O. Kane works alongside his siblings to provide industry-leading best practices under the umbrella of the Kane brand. Family members who want to work in any of the businesses are trained like any other employee. While three generations of the Kane family have worked in the family businesses, KANE Construction is still founder-operated, with the fourth generation currently in high school.

Fun Fact: Dennis Kane routinely buys Powerball lottery tickets when the jackpot exceeds $100 million. Each employee, regardless of position, is included in the pool.

CULTURAL VALUES
Quality construction depends on quality work, and Kane intends to keep to his company’s traditional attributes to guarantee good results in all of its operations. This path, he believes, will help continue KANE Construction’s prosperity as well as its status as an industry leader.

LASTING LEGACY
“Our objective is to bring leadership to our industry and community,” Kane says. “We do this through thoughtful and innovative solutions to daily industry challenges.”
