MEET THE PRESIDENT
First and foremost, John is a family man who has been married to his wife, Melanie, for 20 years. They have 3 boys; twins Jack & Dane (12) and Dax (7). He enjoys hunting/fishing, BBQing and golfing, as well as sponsoring and coaching youth sports.
John was born and raised in Kansas City, Kansas and attended Kansas State University where he received a Bachelor of Science in Construction Science and Management from the College of Engineering. After being fast-tracked from Project Manager to Director of Operations in a short period of time, it became clear that creating his own business and leading others was necessary. Baron Contracting was established in 2006 with the mission to become a “Class A” Commercial General Contractor in Kansas City, providing a level of service and quality that did not exist. His vision to build a legacy of excellence within the industry and throughout individual communities remains the same today.
He has strong ties to the local community and his past and present board terms include many local non-profit organizations such as The American Red Cross, Kansas City’s Entrepreneurs’ Organization and the YMCA. In 2014, he and Melanie established a foundation named Train It Forward. This organization is dedicated to teaching life-saving skills and spreading water safety knowledge to the Kansas City community through free, convenient and fun training-based events. In 2017, John was elected to the Piper USD 203 Board of Education and continues to give back by lending his professional expertise and oversight as they build new schools.
With a local and regional reputation for being a leader in innovative work with developers, building owners, architects and contractors alike, we are equipped with expertise across a wide range of services. Our determination to achieve perfection produces a seamless project lifecycle from start through punch list completion regardless of the delivery method.
STEP 1: GOALS & OBJECTIVES
As one of the top Kansas City General Contractors, our very first step is to identify the goals and objectives of our clients. This allows us to define the outline of the project and the disciplines required to achieve the desired outcome. We spend sufficient time at this stage developing a strategy that helps ensure a successful project completion.
STEP 2: RECRUIT TALENT
Recruiting the right talent contributes to an organization’s overall productivity and growth. We only hire the best people, subcontractors and material vendors who deliver first-class quality and know how to pay attention to detail. It is critical for us to use those with top-level talent, attitude, and customer service in order to guarantee exceptional results.
STEP 3: THE HEAVY LIFTING
We collaborate with our project team to achieve a shared goal of delivering premium solutions. We understand the importance of a sharp engineer, an architect with a keen eye, as well as master craftsman that uses high-quality materials. Within our team, we foster full respect of our client’s time, budget, and property.
STEP 4: COMPLETION
Final inspections and punch lists are the Achilles heel for most General Contractors. However, we see these milestones as celebrations of success. We are constantly informed by clients and architects that we are more critical of our work then they are. We’ve mastered the art of expedient punch list completion and are the best in the business when it comes time to handing over the keys. Satisfaction for our team is only realized when your vision becomes reality.
