Robby Schulte

President - Construction Services

I have worked in the construction industry since 1995, with experience ranging from concrete work to finish carpentry, as well as metal building construction, which I particularly enjoy due to the strength and permanency of steel buildings.

After graduating from South Dakota State University in 2000, I began working in sales for a metal building contractor, gaining valuable experience in construction over the next 10 years. In 2010, I founded Kaleden Construction to focus on metal building projects of all types and general contracting.

With over 20 years of experience, I have been responsible for constructing hundreds of thousands of square feet of metal buildings, giving me the expertise to efficiently incorporate metal buildings into your projects.

Steel Building Services

I started in the construction industry in the 1980’s and have made it my profession. I don’t know what I want to do when I grow up but I still enjoy this work after 40 years. I am responsible for putting the people in the places they need to be to get our projects completed in line with our high standards.

If there is a metal building function or detail I have more than likely seen it and built it. I have been responsible for all aspects of construction projects over the years and I have also been responsible for erecting hundreds of thousands of square feet of metal buildings in all sorts of conditions.
