Our family has been associated with the construction industry in West Michigan since 1897, through a variety of residential and commercial projects. On January 1, 1985, JWK Construction, Inc. was formed with Jim Karsten, his son Steve Karsten, and his son-in-law Mark Meyers as the principals.

With one project and the principals as the only employees, the company was kept busy through 1985 and began to build a team of qualified employees. In 1986, several new projects launched the company into many different directions.  Since 1986, JWK Construction, Inc. has averaged over 28 projects per year.  During the busiest years, JWK Construction, Inc. ran up to 46 jobs using a total of 45 employees.  The total revenue of those jobs ranged from $ 1,000.00 to $ 3.5 million.

JWK Construction, Inc. has completed a wide variety of commercial projects that range from the beautiful bed and breakfast Harbor House Inn in Grand Haven to remodeling grocery store food chains to a six theater addition at the Grand Rapids Star Theater.  The company has also built stand-alone office buildings for accountants, lawyers, and church regional administrative offices.  JWK Construction, Inc. has also undertaken government jobs such as:  building the picturesque Leslie E. Tassell Park that sits along the banks of the Thornapple River in Cascade Township, building city police and fire stations, and renovating the fire and rescue building at the Gerald R. Ford International Airport.  The company has completed projects on various religious facilities that range from church remodels to structural additions.  JWK Construction, Inc. has done extensive remodeling at several health care facilities.  Residential work completed by the company includes renovations to existing homes and building custom homes.

On January 1, 1998, JWK Construction, Inc. was reorganized with Mark and Steve as principals. Since then, JWK Construction, Inc. has been growing steadily in size and, more importantly, reputation -- by constructing high quality buildings for people and businesses all over West Michigan.  Both Mark and Steve strongly believe in offering their clients the personal one-on-one care that is necessary in order to successfully complete any project.

We pride ourselves in a large repeat client base. Let us help you build for your future.
