Remote Alaska Solutions (RAS) specializes in innovative concrete building solutions that defy Mother Nature. We offer custom Commercial, Residential and Hangar Solutions built with Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) for the ultimate in strength, disaster resilience, value and energy efficiency. Our trailblazing construction techniques allow us to build faster and more efficiently than traditional methods, while being significantly more eco-friendly and well-suited for the toughest climate conditions.
With a mission to bring innovative construction technologies & proven solutions to the State of Alaska, RAS was founded in 2012 by Seth Kroenke, and is a fully licensed, bonded and insured Palmer-based general contractor. Operating mostly throughout the Anchorage Basin and Matanuska River Valley of Palmer, Wasilla, Chugiak, Eagle River, Anchorage, Girdwood, and the surrounding areas, the company is nevertheless uniquely capable of providing service to even the most logistically challenging and remote stretches of the state.
In addition to a wide variety of commercial and residential ICF construction projects, including commercial ICF hangars & warehouses, our scope of work also includes civil construction and mobile concrete services, such as water/sewer, foundations, remote roads, runways and environmental remediation.
We are often asked about the meaning behind our company name. The truth is, we can't think of a better way to describe what it's like to build in this great State of Alaska other than "Remote." Although our location in the Anchorage Basin / Matanuska River Valley is far from bush Alaska, constructing buildings and working below grade anywhere in Alaska is fundamentally remote. Whether we're building in the bush, in Anchorage or in the Valley, Alaska's topography is relentless in presenting its own unique challenges in terms of logistics, excavation, extreme weather, bedrock, permafrost, and more. As a solutions-based company, we specialize in finding innovative answers to the wide array of challenges that remote Alaska presents.
Seth Kroenke has lived and operated in bush Alaska for over 14 years, giving him a distinct appreciation for the logistical skills required to successfully tackle any project in Alaska, on or off the road system. Now residing in Palmer, Alaska, where the company is headquartered, he and his wife, Jeelan, have four children and enjoy spending time together hunting, fishing, boating and snow-machining in the unending splendor of the Alaskan outdoors.
