Earth Construction is an emerging general contractor that has successfully operated in the public and private sectors throughout the New York Metropolitan Area for over nineteen years. We are a certified Woman’s Business Enterprise (WBE), and a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE).
Earth Construction's founder, Joanna Karageorgiou, emerged by first serving a narrow niche in the residential market, building its capacity and capabilities, and gradually transitioning from a subcontractor to a larger, general contractor’s (GC) market. Today, Earth is considered a reliable, prominent and respected provider of choice with the New York City School Construction Authority (with whom a majority of Earth’s projects are performed), Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), and Department of Design and Construction (DDC).
Joanna Karageorgiou highlights aspects of this successful business: “Know How” or technical expertise gained through experience and education is the first precondition. This expertise must be supported by prudent and skillful money management. Thirdly, she believes in building solid relationships that aid effective communication and promote goal-oriented problem solving.
Joanna Karageorgiou is a humble leader who values her staff and leads by example. She does her best to learn from every new experience, is meticulous when it comes to cost control and money management, and has established some excellent business contacts and partnerships throughout the industry. Joanna reinforces the notion that personal determination and hard work connect and glue together these three components.
Earth Construction combines general contractor capabilities with medium-firm, customizable and detail-oriented construction management services in the Tri-State area. The combination of consistency, speed, quality, and operational flexibility make us unique in this field. Whether it is a project, budget or conversation we focus on the details to ensure our clients get the best results.
