Company History

McKee Associates, Inc. is a family owned company that has been specializing in the new construction and remodeling of office buildings, metal buildings, retail space and restaurants since 1964. Our company is made up of two divisions: Commercial Division and Food Service Division.

McKee Associates, Inc. was founded by William F. McKee in 1964 after realizing that there was a need for a quality carpentry labor subcontractor and he eventually developed his skills into becoming a General Contracting firm.  Bill started his career off by attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After attending the University of Wisconsin, Bill went to work for Oscar Mayer, where he became one of Oscar Mayer building maintenance supervisors and assisted in finding new building locations. He would then manage the construction of these new facilities, which helped in the growth of Oscar Mayer.

In 1970, Bill began developing land around the Madison area.  You may have heard of some of the areas they have developed that include: Tower Hill, Wildwood, Seminole Ridge, Chapel Valley-Fitchburg, and Gateway-Verona.  For many years, Bill ran McKee Associates, Inc. and Midwest Homes Inc. (our residential sister company)

In 1993, Bill's son Brian McKee, joined the firm as Construction Manager.  Brian is the second generation of McKee Associates Inc. He brings many new and innovative ideas to the building industry. Brian started learning every aspect of the building business at a very early age while working for his father.  He started as a laborer and landscaper while in middle school, and worked into being a carpenter the last two years of high school.  While attending college, Brian continued to work as a carpenter and he also began running small commercial projects for McKee Associates, Inc.

Brian McKee is currently the President of McKee Associates, Inc. and Midwest Homes, Inc. and runs the company along with his mother, Jan, and sister, Melissa.
