A passion driven by founder, Devan Kaufman, and his lifelong appreciation for architecture, quality craftsmanship, and excellent customer service.
Whether he and his staff are transforming a dated kitchen, helping homeowners create a luxurious master suite or renovating the family bathroom, they’re not satisfied with anything less than the best. The company has extensive Design-Build experience and has remodeled kitchens, master suites, bathrooms, entire houses, covered porches and home exteriors, in addition to finishing basements and building additions for homeowners throughout the greater Des Moines area.
Devan devotes his personal appreciation for fine design to each Kaufman Construction project. Our design team works closely to finalize each detail before construction begins. Once the final plans are complete, they are turned over to skilled craftsmen who share the same passion, integrity, and commitment to quality construction. Thanks to their dedication, Kaufman Construction consistently delivers projects that are on time, on budget, and exceed client expectations.
Our clients were the inspiration behind KC Handyman, a division of Kaufman Construction formed in 2004. In some industries, you never hear from your clients again once a job is finished. Fortunately, that wasn’t our experience. Our clients stayed in touch with us long after their remodeling projects were completed. In fact, many of them trusted us to tackle other jobs in their homes, ranging from repairing leaky roofs to installing new kitchen cabinets and countertops.
We realized that it made sense to start a service that offered an alternative to the Design-Build, fixed price approach offered by Kaufman Construction. KC Handyman was created to handle smaller projects that require skill and craftsmanship but don’t need the same oversight as a major renovation.
The talented handymen who work for KC Handyman take care of large and small repairs, maintenance and renovation projects for homeowners and businesses. Clients pay an hourly rate and are responsible for directing the work of the handymen.
Matt is the longest full-time employee at Kaufman Construction - since 2003! He is responsible for creating and managing the design schedule throughout the design process. He is also in charge of all drawings and schedules. Matt gathers information from the sales and design team, vendors, and trade contractors to produce accurate and complete drawings and estimates. His favorite part about working at Kaufman Construction is the variety of projects and the detail level of the design and drawings. Matt's favorite food is Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch, and his favorite sport to watch or play is baseball.
Scott is responsible for all aspects of production, making sure the company has the needed resources to achieve our goals. This includes meeting company goals, setting the field staff up to be successful, and ensuring our customers are satisfied. When he is away from work he enjoys spending time with his wife and three dogs. A guiding principle or rule to live by that Scott has is – get it done.
