Kay Builders – Sculpting Communities Into the Natural Setting

Kay Builders – Sculpting Communities Into the Natural Setting

June 5, 2015

Kay Builders, the leading homebuilder and residential developer in Lehigh Valley PA, has introduced The Fields at Indian Creek, an active adult community of 219 single homes in Emmaus PA and Trio Fields a community of 350 townhomes and single homes in Nazareth PA.

Kay Builders is a fully integrated company, performing all functions in-house – from property acquisition, land planning and site excavation to architectural design, construction, and marketing and sales. Many years of owning and operating a site excavation company and a strong knowledge of engineering give the company a unique perspective on how to design communities. According to owner Rick Koze, “We have a very good feel for how a community should layout given the specific topography and site conditions and we often make changes to our engineer’s designs. We will suggest where to add units to make better use of roadways, where to add walkout basements, how to re-orient the roads to provide maximum views, and where to add parks and recreation areas.”

With its in-house site excavation company and vision for the end product, Kay Builders can cost effectively add character to its communities. It is this approach to sculpting the land, while also providing superior home designs and unique facades that makes the difference. This may include adding landscape berms or rock walls to just the right area, adjusting grades to save trees, adding water features, or adding elevation changes to the property rather than flat grading the property like most developers.   Koze adds “We view site development and homebuilding as separate forms of art.”

In an era of increasing environmental awareness, Kay Builders also is sensitive to building communities that buyers can feel green about. According to Koze “Most developers will clear cut all trees from the entire site; that’s never been our approach. We work as much as possible with the existing landscape,” Koze said. He said sensitivity to a property’s topography, as well as preserving trees, natural resources and environmental elements, factor into the firm’s overall land development projects.

A typical Kay Builders community will be close to streams or creeks and built into the hills that rise up from the streams with walking paths and nature preserves along the streams, thus providing for some of the most scenic communities. Most builders look for property in flat cornfields with less character, but Kay Builders enjoys working with more challenging terrain.

Through Kay Builders’ long-term knowledge of the Lehigh Valley and familiarity with growth patterns, the company specializes in acquiring excellent scenic land near all amenities, with easy access to major highways. Because of its excellent reputation in the Lehigh Valley Kay Builders is able to have the first shot at developing the best properties. Land owners trust the company.
