For Women’s History month, we are spotlighting women general contractors who are in our network. They are leading the way while closing the gender gap. With solid work portfolios, their firms have completed a wide range of projects—from single-room remodels to full-home renovations and additions. This post, the second in a five-part series, profiles some of the most talented Sweeten general contractors across our various cities.

Sweeten General Contractor Leah | New York City

Women owned general contractor

General contractor Leah has owned and operated her contracting business in NYC for almost 15 years, with experience in different points of the process. Her company completes a wide range of construction activities, from pre-development to turnover. Serving both the public and private sector, Leah has worked on projects ranging in scope and skillsets—from a condo fitness center and Victorian home restoration to a modern high-rise apartment. Each of her projects gets assigned a dedicated project manager to ensure it is completed on time and on budget. See more of Leah’s remodeling work and reviews on our website.

Sweeten General Contractor Ishita | Long Island, NY

Ishita’s main focus is customer service. It’s a point of pride not to use “pushy sales tactics or upselling” to retain clients. Instead, she prefers to let the work speak for itself. Ishita’s general contracting firm handles all different types of renovations in Suffolk County, New York, located on Long Island. For example, she has completed single-room makeovers as well as large estate renovations. The general contractor also plans, manages, and builds multi-phase jobs. Above all, Ishita remains focused on the overall experience. “It really is about how our customers feel at the end [that matters].” See Sweeten contractor Ishita’s reviews and work.
