Who We Are

The Constant Pursuit to do Everything Better

KHS&S is transforming construction from a field-based industry to an industry of digital modeling, virtual project delivery, prefabrication and Lean manufacturing. We are defined by a core purpose and set of values that drives us to not be defined by others, but rather forge our own path into the future.

History

Pioneers in Construction Since 1996

KHS&S was founded in 1984 as a regional wall and ceiling contractor and enjoyed a decade of steady growth amidst the expansion of Walt Disney World, EPCOT Center and the exploding economy of Central Florida. In 1996, the company expanded westward to California and Nevada, beginning the company’s rapid ascent to becoming one of the largest specialty contractors in the United States and the international leader in themed construction.

Safety

An Unwavering Commitment to a Culture of Safety

Safety is a core value at KHS&S. Our commitment is demonstrated in our ongoing development of comprehensive programs that include training and development, safety inspections, safety incentives and daily job walks. Every KHS&S safety program has the single goal of sending workers home safely every night.

  • Training and Education
  • Management Support
  • Accountability
  • Human Element
  • We are committed to providing health & safety related orientation and training for employees at all levels within the organization.

    Training ranges from daily tool box talks and Lean stand up meetings to OSHA certifications, informative updates and job site hazard analysis.

  • Leadership plays a vital role in developing and maintaining an ideal safety culture.

    Leadership and field management from the president through the first line supervisor contributes to safety performance. This high level of support demonstrates the importance that safety plays on every project.

     

  • Everyone plays a role in our safety culture

    Every employee is required to do their part in making safety a priority. Workers are encouraged to provide suggestions on improving safety quality and productivity.

  • KHS&S' Human Element Safety Program

    Our company’s written safety program Human Element offers guidance to a safe work environment, while providing direction to a compliant workplace. We have implemented safety systems that follow our program, but allow for innovation, flexibility and creativity. KHS&S’ Human Element system provides framework for safety implementation.
