ABOUT US

HISTORY

Quest Builders Group Inc was founded at the start of the new millennium. Quest is a General Contractor/Construction Manager servicing the New York Metropolitan area.  We service the commercial and residential industries by providing an array of construction services for all types of projects.

We believe that all projects, regardless of size, deserve personal attention.  That attention comes directly from the principals from project conception to completion.  As owners, we have hand picked a staff of team-oriented individuals who each share the common goal of exceeding the expectations of each client.

Quest Builders Group Inc works closely with the necessary parties to ensure your project progresses on time and within budget.  Understanding the architects design intent and creating innovative solutions to complex construction projects is what sets Quest Builders Group Inc apart from our competition.  Quest Builders Group Inc is dedicated to meeting your construction needs with unparalleled commitment and service.

MOTTO

Our Motto, Quality Building…Guaranteed, is our belief that choosing QBG Inc for your project will lead to a successful completion. Ultimately, our overall success with a project is achieved through our attention to detail and establishing project communications with the owner, architect, engineers and subcontractors. These open lines of communication and our construction knowledge are the guidelines for projects.

PHILOSOPHY

Quest Builders Group has one single goal in mind and that is to build long term relationships. We recognize today’s project challenges and how our role in the industry has changed. Today’s projects include tight schedules and even tighter budgets. As such, and in addition to our basic construction services, we must be innovative thinkers. We must constantly look for creative solutions and new ways to implement them. We need to be responsive to our clients, consultants and subcontractors. Our actions must always uphold the highest ethical standards and we must always maximize our client dollar.

OUR GOALS

Our goal is to provide construction services to our clients more than once. With that in mind, we have established the following three points to keep us focused on our goal, repeat business means satisfied clients:

  • Integrity. We ensure our actions match our words. We maintain the highest ethical standards and uphold the reputation of the company in everything we do.
  • Client Satisfaction. QBG Inc takes pride in servicing its clients. We focus on building long-term relationships, and on meeting and exceeding expectations. Creating and delivering superior value to clients is a way of life.
  • Team Work. We are staffed by highly motivated and dedicated employees who focus on meeting the needs of our clients.

PRINCIPAL INVOLVEMENT

The company’s success is directly attributable to the personal “hands on” approach of the principals. Each project, no matter the size is overseen by a principal of the firm.

CRAFTSMANSHIP AND PROFESSIONALISM

The Quest Builders Group team is made up of highly experienced and talented professionals. With meticulous attention to detail we are certain that each project is delivered with exceptional quality. Throughout the process, our teams maintain clean, safe and orderly job sites. QBG maintains a long standing mutually beneficial relationship with our subcontractors and vendors. The result ensures great results for the clients.

VALUE ENGINEERING AND COST CONTROL

Changes are commonplace during a project. Through extensive reporting and due diligence our clients are completely made aware of scope and overall impact. If there is a way to reduce cost or expedite completion, we will deliver it.

TRANSPARENCY
