FR Review:
Premier contractor Clark Construction has big projects, big budgets, and big recommendations for what we are told is “truly top-of-the-line, museum-quality work.” What distinguishes this firm from other top-notch competitors is their capability to do such outstanding work while remaining "soft on the nerves." The firm, now helmed by Erhan Secilmis, began in 1983, and continues to do lots of high-profile residential work for clients, primarily in Manhattan. We hear that the firm of 50 committed professionals, is also armed with a stable of A-list subcontractors and worth every nickel he charges (though we understand the nickels add up quickly).

Erhan was raised in New York and totally understands the mindset and expectations of the upscale clientele. Considered the heir apparent and with the company for 18 years, Erhan is known for noticing every single detail every single day. The firm takes on eight to twelve projects at a time, mostly gut renovations, but will also undertake with some bathroom and kitchen remodels. Since the pandemic, much of the client interface has smoothly gone to Facetime or Zoom. Clark's loyal group of subcontractors, most of whom have been with the firm 10-30 years makes this a very consistent operation. Many of the best buildings in Manhattan have seen Clark's work including the River House and much of Park Avenue. Clark’s long standing customers often started with this “classy operation” when a complicated project demanded unsurpassed finish work. Patrons' consensus view is that, "whatever we paid is worth it." Furthermore, the firm sticks by their work well after completion.

Representative Client Comments:
“They shine particularly at traditional.” “The firm's timing is so good. We had to complete a ballroom for a wedding in an impossible time frame and they did an amazing job so quickly and efficiently.” “The entire operation makes you feel like you are working with peers and friends, as compared to other contractors.” “We were shocked at the honesty and integrity of all the people in the organization.” “Top management and the staff are forceful in letting the architect know exactly what they need.” "We are heartbroken that Chris is gone, but Erhan was already fundamentally running the firm and most all of the staff is still in place."“My kitchen designer was a nightmare and Clark saved the day!” “The company took a year of what I thought would be heartburn and turned it into a pleasurable experience.” “Extremely expensive, but five years later I still stay in contact with Rhonda in the office–she is terrific and has been with the firm for 35 years. Without her, it wouldn’t work.” “Really helps the client and architect with detailed budgets.” "Erhan does not nickel and dime you, always taking the high road." “This is an extraordinary company; peak projects—it can handle anything.” “All will be done."
