Award-Winning Commercial Construction in Kansas City

At the forefront of commercial construction

At Luke Draily Construction, we focus on the big picture without letting the little details slip by. We earned our reputation as a top commercial contractor in Kansas City with good old fashioned hard work.

The Luke Draily Construction Story

Bob Becker founded Luke Draily Construction Co. in 1997 with a business approach based on the values he learned from his parents:
We believe that trust, integrity and flexibility are imperative to doing business, that people should treat others as they want to be treated, and that our word should stand for something: The Truth.

It turns out, Bob wasn’t alone. Years of fostering strong working relationships, holding ourselves accountable, and innovating in the industry saw us through incredible growth.

More than 25 years later, we stand as one of the Top Ten Commercial Builders in the KC Metro according to General Contractors Magazine. We’ve been recognized as the fastest growing construction company in the KC area and have numerous Capstone Awards and List Recognition from the Kansas City Business Journal and Ingram’s Business Magazine.

Dentistry for Children has worked with Luke Draily Construction for the last 6 years. They were involved in the construction of our two-story dental office in the Linden Square area of downtown Gladstone, MO. This building was the Benchmark for what future construction was to look like and the standard that would have to be met in the area. Luke Draily was very professional and could see our vision for the building. Their skills and contacts helped bring the project in on budget and exceeded our expectations for the finished building. They were always available during and after the project as different questions arose. Luke Draily was truly a team partner in completing this building. We are currently undertaking another project and went back to Luke Draily for the work. They stand behind what they and their contractors do. The quality and workmanship delivered is high, and the personal touches make all the difference. We would highly recommend them for dental office new builds and remodels as they have a vision on flow and needs and partnerships with dental supply companies.

Whole Foods Markets, being the nation's premier organic and natural foods grocery chain, seeks to find partners in building our stores that can join us in getting our message to the public. We negotiated our construction contracts for the Shell and Tenant Improvement package for our new 55,000 square foot store in Town and Country, MO with Bob Becker, president of Luke Draily Construction. The process allowed us to review all sub contractor bids and material purchases together through an open book policy and maintained a hands on management style that helped to monitor our budgets and see first hand the inner workings of Luke Draily. Bob and his entire staff were committed to value engineering our project throughout the design and construction process. They responded efficiently whenever redirection issues arose, never yielding the best of Quality and Craftmanship. Thanks to their excellent communication and dedication to detail, Whole Foods opened on time and on budget. Every customer and visitor to this store is able to quickly see the quality of construction and attention to detail that marks this as one of our BEST stores in the Midwest Region. It will be our plan to use Luke Draily Construction again and have, in fact already started conversations on several future projects.

We could not be happier with the outcome of our project!

For years my wife and I had talked about building the dental office of our dreams. At the time, a project of that size seemed like a huge undertaking full of stress and the unknown. We had never done a large construction project and hardly even kew where to begin. With the help of Darrin Ingram and Luke Draily Construction, our dreams have become reality. Ever since our first meeting, we knew that Luke Draily was the partner we needed for our project. Darrin, our general contractor and project manager, was very open and honest from the beginning and made the entire process a great experience. Darrin spent a great deal of time making sure that the design was exactly how we envisioned it before we even broke ground. Our requests were the highest priority for Darrin and he often reminded us that the most important thing was making the building exactly how we wanted it. The construction phase of the project went extremely well considering we continued to operate during the expansion. We tripled the size of our building and never once had to close for construction reasons. This was one of our requests before we began construction so Darrin figured out how to make this happen without any problems. The attention to detail was quite remarkable and having a Superintendent from Luke Draily on site proved to be a huge help in managing workflow and completing the project on schedule. We could not be happier with the outcome of our project. Our team members are proud to work in this new environment and we can see their enthusiasm and excitement each and every day in our state-of-the-art facility. The original fear that we had of taking on this project was easily changed by the professionalism and expertise of Darrin and the Luke Draily team. We could not have done this without them and we plan on continuing our relationship in all future construction endeavors that we come upon.

Tutera has entrusted over $100 million worth of projects to Luke Draily Construction

Luke Draily was involved from the early planning through completion, provided valued engineering throughout the project and coordinated the work of the design team. They have shown the flexibility to adapt to our needs and go the extra mile when small or large changes occurred. This allowed us to continuously improve the product for our future residents while construction proceeded. Luke Draily used an open-book approach to the project which provided transparency in all aspects of their engagement. Their commitment to this process created trust, teamwork and resulted in competitively priced projects with award winning quality. Tutera previously served as its own general contractor in our last generation of projects. However, we lacked the processes, access to quality subcontractors and manpower needed to engage on the scale of projects we were currently undertaking. Luke Draily was able to fulfill this crucial role at this critical time with full transparency.
