Deepening roots, strengthening ties to community and working to achieve big plans … Kinsley Construction is building a vision for York’s continued growth and development. Its #BuildYork campaign champions and celebrates downtown York’s revitalization through quality construction projects that build community.

Kinsley’s commitment to supporting the infrastructure of a revitalized York can be seen at the heart of the company itself: 1110 E. Princess St. What was once vacant building space is now a state-of-the-art office facility with space and amenities to support Kinsley’s future growth.

The new East Princess Street office unites the building’s past with its present and future. Multiple meeting spaces throughout the structure allow employees and clients to collaborate with support from up-to-date technology. Flexible open floor plans throughout the building feature stand-up desks and comfortable seating. A large training room and an in-house photography and videography studio offer the places and tools to transform ideas into projects that benefit York’s community and enrich its culture.

Like extensions of the interior, outdoor spaces on the campus invite employees and guests to connect through conversations and idea sharing in an open-air setting. 

As the place where Kinsley was founded in 1963, York means a lot to President and CEO Jon Kinsley and the more than 800 employees who live and work in York. Selecting the location for this new office, he says, was a decision motivated by Kinsley’s connection to the city. “We have deep roots in York,” he says. “Expanding some operations at our current location in the city was the only option we considered.”

Working together with community partners to make big ideas happen, transforming spaces into places of potential, supporting the work of nonprofits throughout the community, advancing careers, and employing local talent … today, and each day, Kinsley Construction is proud to

#BUILDYORK.

YRK PERSPECTIVES:

What Is a Creator and Maker?

As it applies to York, a ‘creator and maker’ is an individual or organization that understands the importance of a strong local community. They have the vision of what it looks like and the positive influence it has on the lives of everyone who lives there. Most importantly, they have the drive and commitment to make their vision a reality. They not only talk the talk. They walk the walk and produce a positive outcome.
