“Thank you for the knowledgeable, professional CM and GC services that G Builders continues to provide on projects that I have designed. My design work encompasses a range of building types, both new structures and renovations including residential, office interiors, commercial stores, restaurants, historic preservation, courthouses and large industrial facilities. G Builders offers the flexibility and know-how to work well in any of these categories.
As an architect, what is so important to me is to know that my designs will be executed with construction integrity, with attention paid to the requirements of my plans and specifications, and with an understanding and appreciation of the design intent. Your leadership, and your staff, with expertise in estimating, constructability review, value engineering, trade coordination and on-site project management, are instrumental during the various project phases from pre-schematics through punch list.
I am very pleased with the progress to date on the expansive mixed-use building that we are working on with G Builders currently. I look forward to more of the same.”
“For the better part of 8 years we have worked with G Builders on projects large and small, new and existing, mainly in an urban building environment. As a firm in the business of structural engineering the surprises, particularly in existing/retro-fit work, come when the finishes come off and the true conditions exposed. It is a pleasure to work with a firm such as G Builders who has the stomach to deal with the realities of such work in a realistic, expedited manor and done so with a steady hand.
We have always had direct lines of communication to the leaders of G Builders that have proved to ward off issues before they become major threats to the budget and schedule. As engineers we have always welcomed the back and forth with your firm that puts ego aside and allows to reasonable solutions to take precedence. We have performed this dance with your firm with success over the years.
Bottom line; Engineers such as ourselves value the assets/abilities of G Builders and hope to continue our ongoing success.”
“I’m writing to tell you how pleased we were with the work G Builders did in renovating our NYC headquarters. The work you did was done professionally and the communication throughout the project was superb. We were really impressed with the quality of your work, and your sensitivity to keeping our business efforts going while you completed the project with our staff remaining on site.
It was definitely a challenging project, but your dedicated crew brought experience and dedication to the project and allowed us to finish on schedule and under budget.
Thank you so much and we would definitely use G Builders for any future buildout projects that require a savvy and professional contracting firm like yours.”
“This letter is to thank you for your Construction Management and General Contracting services provided at Cross County Savings Bank, Ridgewood NY. It is a pleasure to work with G Builders who is very organized, communicative and raises awareness to project challenges by providing solutions that will not affect the project’s schedule or budget.
The G Builders project team displays a high level of professionalism, experience, dedication, and commitment to quality. It is refreshing to work with a company that understands and assists the developer, architects, engineers, and consultants in making the construction process efficient and economical.
We value your professionalism and we look forward to continue to work with G Builders on future projects”.
“G Builders worked very closely with us building out our main office at 460 Park Ave South and we could not have been happier. From start to finish, the team was courteous, helpful and intelligent in the way they managed the whole space. There were no surprises that popped up, which tends to happen when working with a GC. They were involved from the beginning and understood the value of meeting a budget to build a space. They went above and beyond at every turn.
If we were going to build out a new space, we would use the G Builders again, no questions asked. We could not have been happier with the build out.”
I have had the privilege to work with G-Builders on several challenging renovation and restoration projects since 2012, and in each case have been very happy with their dedication to schedule, completion and follow-though.
One example: Our renovation of a sidewalk vault for a 19th Century Cast Iron Landmark building at 72 Greene Street in NYC. The Project Team was instrumental in keeping this difficult and unglamorous job moving forward in the face of a dozen regulatory agencies; unforeseen field conditions that included a cracked granite footing; and all while having to keep all four of the street entrances in use while the entire sidewalk was being replaced. It was an incredible technical challenge, with a heavy dose of politics to keep relations with building tenants and the public smooth – a rare talent, and one we all appreciated as the job moved forward. And it came out looking great: the 130 year-old granite sidewalk flags – each weighing more than a truck – were reset in their original locations, and the new diamond plate sidewalk treatment was cut from extra-long plates such that the seams could align with the building columns. I continue to work with G-Builders and am happy to commend them to you.
Our firm has worked with G Builders on numerous projects over the last three years. These have covered interior and exterior renovations, building system upgrades, installation of new elevators, Construction Management and due diligence investigative services. We have had a wonderful experience working with G Builders and their entire team over these past years and look forward to a long working relationship. We would recommend G Builders without reservation.
It is always a gratifying experience to work with a group of professionals, who understand the client’s needs to obtain certain objectives within a specified timeframe and budget.
My appreciation to the Project Team for their orchestration and execution. Thank you for a job well done!
Thank you and the G Builders team for completing our combined data center projects on schedule and with great care and concern for our surrounding Live Operations. We appreciate the challenge presented by and the speed with which you all handled the ramp up and learning curve of our security and operational processes. As expected, the team remained focused and never lost site of the critical project goals. It was a pleasure to work with a team that is very organized in its communication of the project information; that raised awareness to project challenges in a timely manner and presented solution options for the project team to consider. These among other displayed diligence certainly was key to the project’s success.
I would like to thank you and your team for completing RK&O lighting project. Your team did a great job given the timeframe in which to complete the project. For me, I was most impressed in how you addressed and responded to any and every e-mail question I had. More importantly, your visibility in checking on the work and also defusing the situation with building management (which could have presented a costly problem for us) is something to be recognized. Things were done in a timely manner, and you took the assignment/project in a most professional and responsible manner. It was a pleasure working with you and I wish you many more successes with future clients.
I want to thank you and your team for the outstanding effort that contributed to the success of the initial phase of the project. Within two weeks, your team had the power, cabling, and IDF room up and running to accommodate 110 positions. The space is now operable as a business continuity site and is a strategic asset for the company. Your team persisted on delivering a space without exposed cabling and tray management, and we are pleased they did because the overall result exceeded our expectations. We were willing to accept exposed cabling to ensure that our deadline would be met, but your team was able to deliver a functional and clean looking space within our schedule.
Thanks again for an outstanding effort, and we look forward to working with you on Phase 2.
Much thanks and appreciation to G Builders for the work performed in getting Phase 1 of our new data center up and operating on a timely basis. Given the complexity of this project, and its many obstacles, our experiences to date continue to be successful. You and your firm’s professional efforts are an important contribution to this end.
The complexity and time sensitivity of this project required the dedication and focus from the entire project team. We could not have met the demands of this aggressive schedule without the continued dedication of your firm. Our sincere thanks to you and your staff for a job well done, and I look forward to working with you in the future, as we continue our expansion in new markets.
We want to thank you and your staff for all of your hard work, dedication and execution throughout a multitude of projects to upgrade and transform this historic Landmarked property. Over the course of two years, G Builders has worked very closely with us, the design professionals, and ownership to become part of the team to deliver building altering projects. Each capital construction project came with its own unique set of challenges that can often be found in a circa. 1873 cast iron SoHo building. In addition, your team exhibited great communication and coordination in an occupied building with residential, retail and commercial tenants. Our projects have included full floor office space for high technology companies, elevator replacement, sidewalk vault replacement, building electrical upgrade, boiler replacement, window replacement, new building entrances, and coordination with Con Ed, NYC DOB, DOT and Landmarks.
This could never have happened without your understanding as a builder and commitment to us by delivering a knowledgeable team, solving the day to day issues and pushing the job with continuous communication on issues, budget and schedule. Thanks again for a job well done
I would like to thank all of you for your assistance with the CT/PET project. The area looks wonderful and the staff and physicians are very excited to work in such a clean, well designed & built department.
Your firm’s achievement associated with the coordinating and building our new office and trading floor can be described as: Spectacular, efficient, creative, skillful, conscientious, exceptional, meticulous, ethical, on-time and most importantly, on Budget”! On behalf of my entire organization, I thank you for a job well done.
FANTASTIC !!! Probably the best, cleanest, most professional LAN room buildout I have seen in the 15 years I have been with the OIG. Great job to the Team!
As you Know we have worked with numerous different contractors over the years in this building as well as others in KOP, NY and elsewhere.
Below is the contact information of George (father) and Steve (Son) Figliolia of G Builders. Of all the groups we have worked with, G Builders is the only GC we have given repeat business. You can see their work product in the space on the 10th floor, spaces on 12 and 13th floors, lobby and concourse refresh, as well as your Core bathrooms we have recently updated. The only GC to win multiple G bids. They understand the process and worked with us every step of the way, I have every bit of confidence they will be able to work with you and navigate the red tape.
One of the key differentiators, the G Builders team is very organized. They even staffed an office to manage the job and keep everything on track, understanding our need to deliver the space to the tenants on time. They use an interesting software and its works great at keeping everyone and everything organized in one place. Peter, you work hard and work 24/7 – this software I found most helpful because it allowed me to log in whenever I wanted and see what’s going on in minutes without having to reach out to others and wait for responses during normal business hours. It keeps everything transparent and the various parties accountable as it keeps a true record of all progress, meeting minutes, drawings, schedule, etc.
I am including their contact information below and should you prefer, I would be more than happy to make a warm introduction, in person or over the phone.
