top Arrow

Gotham was formally incorporated in 1931, but traces its roots to the early 20th Century when the first generation of Pickets began shaping the New York City skyline. Over multiple generations, Gotham has earned recognition as one of the most successful and respected privately-owned contracting firms in the nation, providing construction management, general contracting and consultant services. Gotham specializes in a number of construction sectors that includes residential, urban retail complexes, hotels, medical facilities, educational institutions, non-for-profit, adaptive re-use and restoration, and sustainable construction projects. Consistently ranked by both Crain’s New York Business and Engineering News Record as one of the top contractors in the region and the nation, respectively, Gotham has notably built thousands of housing units, and supervised the construction of more than 40 Million square feet through its history.

Gotham Construction is propelled by an exceptional team of construction executives, project managers, superintendents, estimators, field and support staff that adheres to Gotham’s core value system:

  • Client commitment
  • Fiscal responsibility
  • Collaborative process
  • Strategic alignment
  • Due diligence

Our mission

top Arrow

Fundamental to Gotham’s reputation is providing high quality construction services on time and within budget, and has been elemental to maintaining long-lasting relationships with clients, subcontractors, architects, consultants, lenders, and governmental agencies, many of which go back several years.

A number of our projects are large in scale, but Gotham’s operations retain the intimacy of a family-based business. The principals of the firm are well-versed in the details of each project at any given stage of construction. A dedicated team is assigned to the life of each project, but clients always have a depth of in-house resources they can rely on through the duration of the project that includes:

  • Estimating services
  • Mechanical and electrical expertise
  • Scheduling and logistics
  • Value engineering with a focus on feasibility and optimal economic return
  • Site safety
  • Purchasing power that meets procurement requirements of any project

The partnership that develops between project team and client guides the building process each step of the way, from pre-construction planning and risk analysis, to feasibility and construction phase, all the way through to completion and certificate of occupancy.
