Awards

The staff at Rau Construction is immensely proud of each and every project they have completed over the years. However, it is nice to know that other people appreciate our work as much as we do. The following are some of the most recent awards we have been honored to receive.

 Building Excellence awards for Project of the Year – The Associated General Contractors of America, Kansas City Chapter:

2012 AGC Building Excellence Project of the Year: Grand Boulevard Lofts

“The entire Rau project team worked together to coordinate every aspect of this complex construction project.  Rau Construction Company did what we know they will do for us on future projects, they provided personal attention to detail to ensure the overall success of the project and complete customer satisfaction”

2012 AGC Building Excellence Project of the Year: TMC Behavioral Health

Category: Project by General Contractor $1 Million to $5 Million
“Rau Assembled an outstanding team of subcontractors and guided them through the complex change of use from a photographic laboratory to a medical office facility.  The Rau Team never wavered with the many scope of work changes during construction and performed an extremely high quality of craftsmanship in the process.  I give Rau Construction Company the highest marks for excellence in performance and quality for the TMC project and would recommend them without reservation to any developer or building owner.”

2010 AGC Building Excellence Project of the Year: Sigma Phi Epsilon

Category: Project by General Contractor $1 Million to $5 Million
“Rau Construction assisted SigEp’s ownership group from the very early stages of the project, providing critical advice on many of the features of the project design.  Rau’s project manager had direct interaction with the neighboring owners throughout the project, taking extra steps to meet their desires.  The construction, from its inception, progressed on schedule, and the project came in below cost projections.  From an owner’s perspective, “on time,.” “under budget,” and “no workmanship issues” is about as good as it gets!”

—  Thomas L Gray, Sigma Phi Epsilon Construction Committee Chairman

2010 AGC Building Excellence Project of the Year: Valentine Apartments

Category: Renovation Project by General Contractor
“Valentine Apartments was a complex historical rehab involving significant structural damage and the renovation of intricate plaster work in the lobby and foyer areas.  The team’s guiding goal was to meet the schedule and budget while performing with the highest quality of craftsmanship available.  The highest praise I can give is that Rau Construction and Stark Wilson Duncan Architects are good problem solvers.  They proved that time and again on the Valentine project.” 

—  Jack P. Hambene, Senior Vice President, McCormack Baron Salazar Inc.
