Owner Bios Our Team
construction simplified The KSI Construction team, with over 50 years of combined management experience, is dedicated to personalized project management for each client. Co-owners Robert Krause and Shawn Swaney are deeply involved in every project and are readily available to their clients.


    Robert Krause
    During his college years, when Robert wasn't studying for his Construction Management degree, he was busy pouring concrete. After college graduation, Robert worked in Omaha as a project superintendent and project manager before his promotion to vice president of a local general contractor. After serving in this capacity for 8 years, he decided to branch out on his own, and KSI was born. During his 15-year construction career, Robert has managed projects ranging from retail to religious, industrial to office, and everything in between.

    Throughout his career advancement, Robert has received the support of his wife of 14 years and three amazing children. In his free time, he enjoys golf, racquetball, coaching his son's baseball team, running, and participating in his kids' activities.


    Shawn Swaney
    The construction industry is in Shawn's blood. Growing up in Bellevue, Nebraska, he started working for his father's and grandfather's construction company as soon as he could swing a hammer. While studying construction engineering Shawn worked his way through college, first as a carpenter foreman, then as a superintendent for a major Seattle-based general contractor. In 1992, he returned to Nebraska where he worked as a superintendent until 1999, when he was promoted to project manager for a general contractor in Omaha. In 2008, Shawn and his business partner, Robert Krause, founded Krause Swaney, Incorporated (KSI Construction) and have never looked back. His projects throughout his career have covered a broad spectrum ranging from family entertainment centers, auto dealerships, retail buildings, industrial buildings, office buildings, medical and dental clinics, and several restaurants.

    Shawn and his wife, Michelle, are happily married and raising two beautiful daughters, which can be a full time job in and of itself. Shawn promotes and participates in many company functions including the KSI golf, bowling, and softball teams as well as a twice a week company workout. Other activities Shawn enjoys are fishing, playing poker, and golfing. When he isn't working, Shawn likes to unwind with his family by watching movies, playing games, and traveling as much as possible.
