Where are you from and how long have you been in construction?

Andreas: I was born in Brooklyn, grew up in Cyprus, and came back to New York for college, in my early 20s. I’ve been in the construction business professionally for 10 years.

Lambros: I am from the island of Cyprus and moved to the States 30 years ago. I have been involved in the construction industry for 28 years.

How did you get into this industry?

Andreas: I obtained my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Civil Engineering and worked for several design firms in New York City. Later on, I decided to follow my passion and open my own construction company.

Lambros: My passion started even before coming to the USA. While I was attending college, I looked for a job related to the field of architectural design. I started by working for a contractor and then decided to open a construction company.

What do you love most about what you do?

Andreas: I enjoy every step of the process. I love helping people transform their place.

Lambros: I love the experience with the clients and the satisfaction that comes with a finished project.

What is the biggest challenge about renovating in New York City?

Andreas: Dealing with the unexpected issues that come with the old New York City’s buildings.

What do you want all of your clients to know before you work with them?

Andreas: We always put an emphasis on our client’s needs and desires for their home. We want our clients to trust the process and we promise that we will deliver more than expected. We always put our clients first.
