Are you ready to get started on your projects?
Comprised of general contractors, architects, bankers, realtors, developers, engineers, surveyors and homeowners, the team starts with a tried and true formula called “The Recipe.” As the lead “chef” for the team, you specify the ingredients, including priority list and budget, and co-direct team players to prepare and construct your home.
Our greatest compliment is a business partner who has grown into a trusted friend and asks us to build for them again.
We build as if it was ours
A general contractor since 1990, Kiha pioneered the “Partnering Concept” and authored “The Recipe,” a step-by-step approach to designing and building homes as a Team. With an engineering degree from Stanford University, training as a petroleum engineer with Getty Oil, and experience as a consulting mechanical and electrical engineer for Syntech, Ltd., Kiha uses his skills to “engineer” and develop a loyal team of employees and clientele. Kiha enjoys serving in a variety of venues from coaching coaches to ministering at church to building teams. He has three sons and one daughter and is married to Heidi Mukai Pimental.
A second-generation contractor with 28 years experience, Rod leads with a “nothing no can” attitude. Rod instills pride of workmanship and encourages service excellence in the team. He is motivated by seeing a satisfied customer become a trusted friend. In 2002, Rod led the Steelframe Team to Kathmandu, Nepal where they built a medical and dental facility complete with pharmacy. Rod's wife, Jessica, is also a Steelframe Associate whose title is “Project Anything Administrator.” They have three children (1 son and 2 daughters).
Andy, a 30-year industry veteran with nine as a general contractor, has gained his experience in both the commercial and residential fields. He's been on construction teams that have built commercial properties such as the Wailea Suites and First Hawaiian Bank branches. Andy's skill is the result of local and international training. In 1994, he made a trip down under to exchange steel framing knowledge and expertise with the Aussies. In his free time, Andy and his motorcycle friends offer youth-at-risk lessons in horseback riding at Da Ranch and collect Toys for Tots. Married to Denise, their blended family includes two sons and two daughters.
AS A TEAM, NOTHING NO CAN
