Meet The Builder

Born & raised in Southern Maryland, Kevin McElhaney, grew up around the construction industry. Kevin’s first taste of the construction world involved cleaning up job sites after school and on the weekends. From there, he was employed with a commercial contractor that allowed him to work in the field learning various trades such as site work, asphalt/concrete, HVAC, and carpentry. Kevin quickly transitioned from laborer to carpenter to a superintendent. Kevin pursued his studies in Construction Management and CAD at the College of Southern Maryland and continued on to University of Maryland University College in pursuit of a BS in Business Management.
Kevin went on to start a career in Commercial Facilities Management but quickly decided to pursue his passion in construction which led to the founding of Shady Lane Construction. Kevin truly understands how the various trades and skill sets work together to bring your one of a kind ideas and designs to life.

During his free time, Kevin enjoys hunting, farming, and spending time with his wife and two boys on their farm.
