About Koehn Building Systems and Our Commercial Construction Specialties

How We Got Started in Commercial and Agricultural Construction

Since the company’s founding in 1997, Steve Koehn and Jerel Koehn have always taken the approach of doing what is best for the customer, no matter the cost. We are expert problem solvers and strive to deliver quality in every project. We believe it is our duty to provide our customers our very best, and we strive for 100% satisfied customers. This approach has led to building deep relationships with our clients and created a loyal and repeat customer base.

From our humble beginnings in 1997, Koehn Building Systems, LLC, located in Rich Hill, MO, has been faithfully serving commercial, agricultural, and industrial clients throughout the states of Missouri and Kansas.

Our Construction Company’s Leadership and Culture

Today, Steve and Jerel continue to have an active role in the company’s day-to-day operations. Steve is the company’s CEO, and Jerel oversees our metal building operations. We believe there is very high value of one of the owners being directly involved with field operations and building relationships with our team members by working alongside when possible. Both Steve and Jerel instill the importance of attention to detail in every aspect of the commercial construction project, from site analysis and planning to construction management and finishing touches. The value of attention to detail, combined with the vast knowledge and experience of the Koehn Building Systems team, translates into a well-planned, designed and superbly executed construction project.
