The King Rose Story

We are an award winning New York City General Contractor that takes great pride in our work. We provide our clients with terrific value: excellent, high-quality work at a reasonable price coupled with outstanding customer service.

In 2007, Yoel Borgenicht set out to build a new company. He knew that to be successful in NYC’s cutthroat construction landscape, his company would place the highest value on punctuality and standing behind the work as standard practice. In under a decade, he quickly grew King Rose to be one of New York City’s most respected and reputable construction firms. Engineering News-Record took notice and named King Rose New York’s Top Contractor. The company’s core values haven’t changed from the beginning: meet demanding budgets and deadlines, provide impeccable attention to detail, counsel with honesty, build with integrity, and exceed clients’ expectations on every project.

“Our core values and our talented team members are what enable us to provide the highest-quality work and outstanding customer service,” says Yoel Borgenicht.

What Differentiates King Rose Construction?

At King Rose, our focus is on providing a finished space that makes both us and our clients proud. We specialize in meeting demanding budgets and deadlines. We are available to our clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We provide guaranteed fixed prices and schedules on all projects. And we maintain a clean work environment, utilizing environmentally-friendly construction products and methodologies. Most importantly, our staff is at the heart of what makes King Rose most special. We are most proud that our staff comprises a diverse group of women and men at King Rose. Our clients benefit from the King Rose work ethic, respect for one another and shared commitment to delivering the highest quality construction at a reasonable price, coupled with unparalleled customer service.

The New York Real Estate Journal sat down with Borgenicht to find out what motivates him to work in this opportunity-filled, high-risk construction industry.
