WE ARE CONTRACTORS AND INVESTORS WORKING ON LONG ISLAND

DESIGN + CONSTRUCTION + INVESTMENTS

 

Located in Long Island, New York, GCRE is the premier construction management company for investors and home owners.

 

GCRE (Grand Central Real Estate) was founded in 2015 specializing in buying, remodeling and selling investment properties on Long Island. In 2019 we expanded our offering to include Construction Management services to investors and home owners. Whether you are an experienced investor or starting out in real estate investing, we know how to deliver a fix and flip project or a rent-ready property to ensure you achieve your ROI and investment goals. If you are a home owner looking to update or add square footage to your home, our years of experience allow us to provide design, architecture and construction services to meet your project needs. We can also assist you on establishing a budget for your project and strategizing on the best way to execute it based on this.

Additionally, we offer our clients the choice to remodel a property on a fixed project rate or as construction managers, depending on the needs of each project. This allows our clients the choice as to their level of involvement in the day to day aspects of the project.

As investors, we continue to fix and flip properties in Nassau and Suffolk counties.

CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT

 
 

Operating as construction managers for our clients allows them the choice as to their level of involvement in the project.

They partake in the design and DECISION MAKING process IF THEY CHOOSE TO, and if requested, we can triple bid the trade or craft that the project needs to get the best price.

BY LEVERAGING OUR NETWORK AND KNOWLEDGE IN CONSTRUCTION WE BRING THE BEST RESOURCES TO THE JOB.

WE ALSO OFFER DESIGN CONSULTANCY AND SHOPPING FOR FINISHES, MATERIALS AND OVERALL INTERIOR DESIGN.

Our Construction Management services typically include:

  1. Specifying project objectives and plans including delineation of scope, budgeting, scheduling, setting performance requirements, and selecting project stakeholders.

  2. Creating Architectural drawings, blue prints and building permits.

  3. Maximizing the resource efficiency through procurement of labor, sub contractors, materials and equipment.

  4. Coordinating and controlling of planning, design, estimating, contracting and construction in the entire process.

  5. Developing effective communications and mechanisms to keep our clients updated in every step of construction.

 

Other Services we Provide

Architectural Drawings, Design and Plans

We provide detailed architectural drawings that allow our client’s vision come to life. These plans and blue prints are part of the overall design services we provide and typically include brainstorming sessions with our clients to help them put their vision into words which we then transform into construction drawings. We deliver to our clients up to code technically accurate drawings which also facilitate the filing process with the different towns in Nassau and Suffolk counties for building permits.

Building Permits

When it comes to building permits we have seen it all! We have experience legalizing a structure that was done without permits, or simply filing for an interior renovation permit or addition. We are are knowledgeable of the different requirements from each town in Nassau and Suffolk counties and can get a building permit in one day in certain towns.

 

Fix and Flip Remodel

We specialize in complete gut remodels. For our fix and flip clients, we understand that time is money and that to get the ROI our clients want, it is important to consider many variables like: due diligence, materials, finishes, time, scope and budget. We also help our clients with their draw requests and inspections with their lenders.

Home Remodel

We use many of the techniques for a fix and flip remodel when it comes to home remodeling. We help our clients stay on budget and on schedule by using effective communication, making sure quality is of the utmost importance and listen to their needs. We love clients that are not afraid to share the vision for their remodeled home and strive to please them by making that vision a reality.

 

Rental Property Remodel

Rental property remodels are very special projects because they have very specific requirements: time, budget, materials and tenancy. We can help investors with a quick fix for the rental property once it is acquired and have the tenant move as soon as possible to avoid any vacancy and loss of rental income.

Kitchen and Bath Remodel

Kitchens and baths are what sells houses! or so the say but they also make the house more valuable. We love designing and remodeling kitchens and bathrooms on different budgets and time frames, whether you are looking for a an update or a complete gut, we can make your vision come to life.
