Operation of Williams Construction dates back to the early 1970's by Johnny Williams, a Lake Tapawingo resident with a "hobby" of building docks and sea walls to help his friends and neighbors around the lake. Johnny taught his sons and grandchildren his unique technique for building quality structures in and on the water and shared his work ethic and philosophy of providing quality work for a fair price.
Williams Construction and General Contracting, LLC was formally started by Brad Williams, Johnny's grandson, in 2007. Brad enjoyed the construction process from an early age, and went on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management from Missouri State University. In 2013, Williams Construction was renamed Williams Lakefront Construction, LLC, to better reflect the specialized nature of its construction services. Williams Lakefront Construction now provides dock, boat lift and sea wall services at more that 15 Kansas City area lakes. The company is the local distributor for Boat Floater Industries, LLC, and is also a local dealer for ShoreMaster products, Dock Lifeguard Dock Warning System, Wet Steps, and Paradise Pad.
In September 2015, Williams Lakefront Construction acquired the assets of locally owned Elf Machine Works, better known as Elf Boat Docks. Since 1985, Elf Boat Docks specialized in custom built galvanized steel docks. Acquisition of Elf Boat Docks has allowed Williams Lakefront Construction to continue to fabricate the Elf dock frame you trust, while giving us more control over the entire dock process from start to finish. We believe this gives our customers a more superior product, better customer service, and a more streamlined experience overall.
