About KiRST Construction, WNY

Kirst Construction, founded in 1976 by Don and Ken Kirst, is nearing its fourth decade of service and has grown to include the third generation of ownership. The Kirst team – Don, Ken, Mike, Tim, and Andrew – have brought their dedication to quality to a trail of successful construction projects that dot the Western New York landscape and demonstrate the company’s successful longevity.

Every project is managed by an owner of the firm. As a full service firm, we provide general contracting, carpentry, and concrete foundations and flat work. We are also a leading builder of metal buildings in Western New York.

Our long-term relationships with clients, architects, subcontractors, and suppliers translate into successful, quality projects. Many of our employees have been with Kirst for many years, showing mutual dedication and loyalty.
