CREATE A CUSTOM PLAN
Our passion lies in crafting fully custom homes, meticulously tailored to your unique vision and needs.
When we build your home, we will meet with you on-site once a week to review building progress, ask you any questions we might have and answer any questions you might have. We encourage our clients to visit the construction site as often as they would like!
A few of our weekly walk-through meetings are a little longer and cover more information than others. See the list below for meetings that fall under this category.
Here at Kenco Construction, we pride ourselves on using cutting-edge digital tools to streamline and enhance our construction processes, and one of our core software programs is "BuilderTREND."

FRAMING & ELECTRICAL
This walk-through is done when the home is framed. We will mark on the framing where all of the lights, plugs and switches will be located. We will draw all of the cabinets on the floor. We will also mark the locations of sinks, tubs, and showers.
This walk-through is done after the drywall has been installed and primed. We go room by room through your house, drawing shelves in closets and features on the walls. It is a fun, creative process!
This walk-through is done after flooring and tile have been installed. We will go room by room and mark the location of mirrors, toilet paper holders, towel bars, hooks, etc.
Committed to upholding
the highest standards.
Each time we visit the jobsite, we are inspecting the work that has been done and looking for deficiencies. If any are found, they are corrected in a timely manner before they are covered up or before it becomes a bigger problem.
After your home has been built, we do a 2 week inspection and a 1 year inspection. The purpose of these inspections is to note any items that are not to your satisfaction, as well as to give us an opportunity to look at the finished product with fresh eyes. If there are items that need attention, we make a list, send it out to the necessary sub-trades to affect the repairs.
New home construction in Medicine Hat requires several inspections to be done by the following people: Building Safety Codes Officer, Electrical Inspector, Plumbing Inspector, Gas Inspector and Mechanical Inspector.
