Mitch Kaelin, President and CEO
As founder and president, Mitch Kaelin brings more than 30
years of Northern California construction experience to Kaelin Construction,
Inc. As a Senior Superintendent with premier Bay Area construction companies
such as DPR and Rudolph & Sletten, Mitch discovered his passion for
building fast paced, highly technical projects.
As a 20 + year Union Carpenter, Mitch learned all phases of construction
on his path to becoming a Senior Superintendent. Mitch mastered the skills of
project scheduling and coordination, budget management and quality control
while constructing some of the most unique and challenging Bay Area
construction projects. Mitch still uses the lessons he learned as a Union
Carpenter-- a strong work ethic, careful attention to detail, the importance of
quality and the critical necessity of integrity-- in his new role as President
Mitch Kaelin, a well-known and well-regarded life science construction
expert in the Bay Area, has a long list of extremely successful fast-paced and highly
technical projects working in critical environments. With a focus on customer satisfaction
Mitch has become a client favorite with companies such as Roche, Exelixis and
Genentech. Mitch treasures the relationships and contacts he has developed over
the past 30 years among clients, building departments and subcontractors. These
relationships, which were built upon trust and experience, allow Mitch to
achieve 'minor miracles' on an amazingly regular basis.
As a LEED accredited professional, Mitch has played a
significant role in integrating and applying green building philosophies and techniques
into the life science projects he has constructed. Recognizing the significance
and inevitable role that 'Green Construction' would play within the
construction industry, Mitch felt it would be increasingly important to possess
the knowledge and experience to provide leadership in the design and
implementation of sustainable construction.
After 30 years constructing challenging projects and
developing lasting relationships, Mitch started Kaelin Construction in July of
2009. Mitch's goal is to create a construction company that focuses on the
client's needs and, most importantly, their satisfaction. Along with the
challenges of starting a new company also comes the opportunity to focus on the
things that really matter: safety, quality, reliability, personal accountability
and most importantly, customer satisfaction.
Mitch is a Bay Area native currently residing in Pleasanton
with his wife Lisa and two daughters. Mitch is active in the Pleasanton Girls
Softball League having coached his daughters' teams for the past 10 consecutive
years. Mitch enjoys hunting, fishing, camping trips with his family and
spoiling his daughters in his spare time.
