We are proud of our strong connection with the Kansas City community and our identity as a locally owned business.  Rau has successfully completed over 3 million square feet of new construction in the Kansas City metro area including numerous landmark building projects for locally owned Kansas City businesses.  Rau has been a major participant in the down-town revitalization where we have successfully completed over 30 historic renovation projects in the Crossroads, River Market and Midtown areas. Understanding the business atmosphere of our home town has helped us to deliver projects that are a smooth process for everyone and is the reason for so many of our repeat successes.
