Ed manages all pre-pricing and cost estimating, including negotiating costs for materials and bids from sub-contractors. He makes sure that each project remains on budget, and will help suggest ways to keep costs down through value engineering evaluating materials and construction methods to achieve the most cost effective results without sacrificing quality.
Ed began his career in construction during high school as a laborer with his father’s Seattle general contractor company. After graduating from the University of Washington with a degree in accounting, Ed joined Lane Building Corporation, also a Seattle general contractor, full time as superintendent. Ed quickly moved his way up to project manager and oversaw the development of multiple shopping centers in King County.
Other commercial construction projects he managed included: apartment buildings, schools, warehouses and office buildings throughout the Puget Sound region.
In 1977, Ed struck out on his own and started Keever and Associates, a Seattle General Contractor. Under his guidance, the company has built hundreds of custom residential homes, commercial buildings, remodels and tenant improvements.
