Building Relationships

We’re a commercial construction services firm dedicated to building premium projects and robust relationships.

People matter

Strong bonds are the foundation of our firm. At KBE-NY, we know that every project starts with a relationship — with our clients, design partners, trade firms, employees, regulatory agencies, and many more individuals who work together to construct a building.
For our part, KBE-NY brings respect, candor, and trust, as well as a shared commitment and passion for doing our best work.


With the seasoned leadership of Bruno Guarini and Will Telesca, KBE-NY embodies the metro New York spirit of perseverance, adaptability, and ingenuity.

Offering over six decades of combined experience, they face challenges head-on and build scenarios for success for our clients. Together, they have guided more than 5 million square feet of construction within the region’s rigorous regulatory environment.

Whether working as your General Contractor, Construction Manager, or collaboratively in Design-Build, Bruno and Will provide hands-on leadership on every project, no matter how large or small. They lead our seasoned Preconstruction and Construction teams to ensure the project exceeds our clients’ exacting expectations.

KBE-NY assisted in identifying certain problems well
before they became apparent, thereby allowing for

a more organized and streamlined approach.”

Core Values

These values guide everything we do and inform our mission of  “Building Excellence Together”. Strong bonds are the foundation of our city and the lifeblood of the construction industry.

KBE-NY is a partner you can count on. We’ll be 100% dedicated to the success of your project, no matter the size or scope, and will take the time and energy necessary to get things done the right way.
We strive to create a work environment that encourages new ideas and opportunities for everyone’s benefit.
We believe in doing the right thing, by displaying ethical, honest, and fair behaviors. We build trust with clients and collaborators by engaging agile, high-performance teams that deliver on our promises.
You’ll never get our “B” or “C” teams, because our “A” team is our only team. We act with honor and respect, a sense of personal worth, and a passion for our work. We lead by example to inspire others to build their future.
We realize that situations and priorities shift, sometimes overnight. We foster flexibility in our approach, so we can adapt to rapidly changing contexts.

Superior Standards

We’re committed to doing a great job on every project. Our team employs best practices and devises out-of-the-box solutions for a distinct value add.

Our safety record is exceptional. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have strictly adhered to all government mandates and CDC guidelines. In addition, all field staff are 62-hour certified.
Our tech-savvy staff use integrated Autodesk BIM360 collaboration software in the field. Improved communication and increased efficiency = more immediate and fully coordinated, onsite solutions.
KBE-NY embraces healthy and sustainable materials, environmentally conscious methods, and better waste management plans for more responsible construction.
We actively promote the use of M/WBE subcontractors and typically exceed requirements. KBE-NY champions diversity and inclusion, and helps pave the road toward equality.
