KCS West

When Kajima started its U.S. operations in California in 1964, its goal was to become a full-service provider for Japanese clients in the U.S.  Since then, KCS West, as a subsidiary of Kajima USA on the West Coast, has expanded that goal, and today is a total solutions provider with the ability to offer our clients a single-source for all construction services. American companies have become clients as a result of the firm’s excellent track record of completing highly technical projects, and now comprise the majority of KCS West’s revenue.

KCS West has constructed a variety of projects ranging from commercial hi-rises to hi-tech manufacturing facilities, to special-use entertainment/sports, hospitality, residential and educational facilities. The firm’s ability to provide an umbrella of construction services has brought it worldwide recognition.  Our company’s delivery method is unmatched in today’s industry. Our thorough understanding of all facets of the building process assures each client that a project meets or exceeds their quality and budget criteria.
