About Krier & Blain, Inc.

Company History

Krier & Blain was organized in 1979 as a partnership between Chuck Blain and Gary Krier, later being incorporated in 1980. Chuck and Gary both retired in 1998. K&B has since grown to over 100 employees, 4 licensed engineers, numerous project managers, accounting, and administrative staff. Being locally owned and operated, K&B continues to uphold the high standard of work that was set forth by both Chuck and Gary and has continued to be a driving force in the industry.

Today, we can draft, design, 3D model, and perform digital estimation & layout of any project. This includes robotic site layout for coordination and installation along with verification of existing conditions.

Krier & Blain, Inc. performs plumbing, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, and refrigeration work with it's own staff. We are well versed on a variety of types of construction, such as hospitals, nursing homes, warehouses, apartment buildings, office buildings, and working in delicate equipment areas in computer rooms and with communication equipment. We have performed cost plus, design build, and conventional bid projects. Krier & Blain has a complete sheet metal fabrication shop where we manufacture our own ductwork. In 2006 Krier & Blain purchased an Iowa Precision coil line for straight duct fabrication. This machine cuts fabrication time by 50%.
