What our Clients are Saying

Kelly Brother’s commitment to customer satisfaction, quality work, and on budget performance was proven at every level and every project. The result of our working together has been building one of the area’s premier marinas and recently garnered National Marina of the Year.

What our Clients are Saying

Kelly Brothers was commissioned to construct a meandering 1,200 lineal foot elevated boardwalk, through our environmentally sensitive wetland. Our goal was to construct an elevated boardwalk and shell paths through this coastal habitat while respecting the mangrove forest, salt marsh, as well as the oak hammock uplands. The chorography technique Kelly Brothers created was truly impressive. As a result, there was no disturbance or destruction to any part of the surrounding area.

They have a knowledgeable staff with a strong work ethic and the specialized equipment to deliver a quality product at a competitive price.

What our Clients are Saying

KBI was very cooperative in developing solutions to an unforeseen subsurface condition that occurred during installation of the piling. They negotiated the extra
work compensation fairly, and they proceeded with the work with no delays to the project.

What our Clients are Saying

Congratulations to the team for a great project. The KBI crew was outstanding. It is rare that a crew completes a dredge project without the need for a punch list at the end.  Thanks to Jake, Travis, and especially to Raul and his crew.
