History of Rose Design Build

First Christian ChurchIn 1925, H.H. Rose’s construction company completed its first project: the First Christian Church in downtown Olathe, Kansas. Long hours of planning, design, and backbreaking labor went into resurrecting this massive cathedral for the community after the original church burned Christmas Eve of 1924. H.H. Rose, with his painstaking attention to detail, imported stained glass from Austria to add the finishing touches to this beautiful structure, which still stands today.

Forging Ahead

Since then, Rose Design Build, Inc. has constructed hundreds of buildings throughout the Kansas City Metro area, including industrial and commercial facilities, dental and medical offices, manufacturing plants, veterinary hospitals, and corporate campuses.

In 1924, H.H. Rose believed that a project’s architect, construction engineer, general contractor, and even draftsmen and subcontractors should work together, combining their individual areas of expertise into one team. Today that revolutionary team concept is known as design/build throughout the construction industry. The design/build method of project delivery provides the building owner with one single point of contact throughout each phase of design and construction.
