Kelly Hemp Owner/President

Kelly has spent the past 35+ years in the construction industry and can’t imagine doing anything else. He has been diligent, intentional, and fortunate to learn about, and do many trades within the construction industry, both residential and commercial. He continues to strive to be a well-rounded, skilled professional, and uses this experience to help others.

As a believer in focusing on a person’s strengths, he eventually built Cornerstone Custom Construction, Inc. to be a residential and light commercial company that focuses on Concrete and Carpentry. The emphasis within the company, that makes Cornerstone unique, is the strong ability to build the right teams with key people that create exceptional experiences for Cornerstone’s clients. Adopting this view has lead to a passion for developing skilled “servant” leadership that has the capacity to lead by example, both in the field and office.  

Kelly’s personal interest in high performance building created a focus on the specialty area of Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) and Structural Insulated Panels (SIP’s). Cornerstone has utilized and installed these highly energy efficient building systems since its inception back in 2000, and Kelly has personally been working with them since 1998. Imparting knowledge that will positively affect the industry has fueled Kelly’s enjoyment of educating builders, industry professionals, architects and engineers about ICF, SIP’s and energy efficient building methods. He has been a keynote speaker at the Builder’s Association of the Twin Cities, Connex-WI, MN Building Officials Continuing Education, Home Planning Seminars, and other venues.

Kelly graduated from Bethel University in Arden Hills, MN. He studied Chemistry and Biology, majored in Communication Studies (B.A.) and has a minor in Theology. His degree and studies continue to serve him well in his chosen profession. Kelly is conscientious, dedicated, and always strives to be a consummate professional. In his free time, Kelly enjoys spending time with his two children, family and friends. He also enjoys hunting, fishing, four-wheeling, and as much outdoor activity as possible!
