After 30 years of success


in the construction company Kurt Therkildsen A/S in Give, Kurt Therkildsen retired. But not for long. After a few months, Kurt’s fingers were itching again.

In collaboration with Per Henriksen and Chresten Moos Petersen KT Erhvervsbyg was launched – a completely new business concept, as the new construction company focused exclusively on commercial construction.


From the very beginning, the main idea was that the company shouldn’t have its own craftsmen – and that was actually what made the three partners want to start the company. At the time, this degree of specialisation was rare in the Danish construction industry. But the 3 partners did not have any doubts. The profile had to be sharp and the differentiation high. And it was. After just 2 years, KT Erhvervsbyg had a turnover of 100 million DKK.


Since then, the company has realised its goal of 20% revenue growth. Specialization and a sharp profile have paid off. Today, KT Erhvervsbyg A/S is a recognised contractor known for its specialisation in commercial and industrial construction.

The story behind…


The idea for KT Erhvervsbyg came about after Kurt Therkildsen retired in 2007 after 30 years in his own construction company. During the waiting period from 2007 to 2011, the idea of a construction company specialising in commercial construction matured. This was the start of the collaboration with the two partners Per Henriksen and Chresten Moos Petersen. A collaboration that was later expanded with Morten Popp.

The vision of being specialists in commercial construction with a good dose of human morality gave KT Erhvervsbyg a sharp profile without its own craftsmen. Today, KT Erhvervsbyg A/S is one of Denmark’s largest specialised
commercial construction contractors.
