Howell Construction Company has been a Kansas City based general contracting firm since its founding in1989. During those twenty plus years, the company has built a strong reputation in the construction industry by remaining true to its founding values of integrity, value and professionalism. These values show themselves from beginning to end of every project. And the stability of our company is measured by our longevity and our commitment to the area and customers we serve.

From our location in downtown Kansas City, Howell Construction Company, Inc. supports the community in many ways including working closely with the Kauffman Foundation and the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC) to promote the economic stability in Kansas City's urban core.

The strength of our company stems from our personnel. Howell Construction Company, Inc.'s founder, owner and president, Carol Howell, has four decades of construction related experience. In addition, the office staff is composed of highly qualified, professional individuals with an awareness of the construction industry and our clients’ needs. This administrative team provides a strong base of support throughout the project.

Providing unsurpassed quality on every project is the focal point of our company. We employ our own union field superintendents (most averaging over two decades of experience). Individual projects are supervised on a daily basis by our on-site superintendents, with support from the project manager, union carpenters and union laborers. This in-house team of expert craftsmen ensures efficiency, professional quality and integrity in every project. Our people are second to none.

Howell Construction Company, Inc. is a certified D/WBE company. Certifications include City of Kansas City, MO., State of Missouri and Missouri Department of Transportation.
