Lowell G. Scott, Owner and Project Manager
Owner, General Contractor, Licensed Master Electrician and Project Manager
Formal Training & Background:
1983 – Having married Kristeen in 1981, initially joined Armstrong Kitchens as
an installation specialist, coming from a life-long background in home building.
1983-88 – Branched from full time installation to field trouble-shooting.
1989 – Along with wife Kristeen, assumed ownership of Armstrong Kitchens upon
the retirement of founders Mark and Betty Armstrong. Moved to field management end of the business, running the projects.
1997 – Initiated formal training in Electrical & Mechanical, with the goal of bringing
the specialty fields of electrical and mechanical services “in-house” at Armstrong Kitchens, no longer to be sub-contracted out. This would result in tighter installation times through better schedule control, better quality control and lower costs for our clients.
2000 – Achieved Certification as Master Electrician. This paved the way for Armstrong Kitchens licensing in Johnson County as Class C Residential Contractor, and Class DE Electrical Contractor. To provide the best possible service Armstrong Kitchens holds many other current licenses, including EPA Certification for lead-based paint removal.
2002 – present
At least 16 Classroom hours per year are required to maintain all this licensing. These consist of staying current on the latest safety regulations in electrical, mechanical, plumbing and home environmental hazards. Staying on top of these regulations allows Armstrong Kitchens to be fully licensed throughout the various cities in Johnson County, and to be knowledgeable on a wide variety of code compliance issues.
The family in “family business”
The Scotts have been married and have enjoyed (not kidding!) being in business together at Armstrong Kitchens for over 30 years and have two young adult sons, who are both currently combining work and degree studies. Betty Armstrong (pictured below) lives nearby Lowell and Kristeen, and enjoys keeping an eye on things.
