Issues Addressed:  Building owners and property managers occasionally require a broad range of restoration services that go beyond simply re-painting, spall repair, waterproofing and basic carpentry.  In this type of situation, the experience and skills of a professional General Contractor can prove to be highly valuable.  A highly knowledgeable General Contractor can provide timely and cost-effective project management, sub-contractor selection and ultimate savings for the client.

Being a general contractor requires knowledge of running a business and often starts by gaining in-the-field experience as a construction worker.   Kawika’s Founder and President, David Dunham, started as a field worker, carpenter apprentice, mason tender, and painter helper while simultaneously securing a degree and attending apprentice classes. Over the past 30 years, he has acquired necessary management skills to both successfully operate Kawika’s and manage complex and routine General Contractor projects.
