About us

Wojciech Nowak, "Voitec" is a NYC based registered general contractor. In the nineties, he had the privilege of working alongside his father as his construction company renovated apartment blocks dating from the time when his city, Wroclaw, was still considered to be a part of Germany. He learned the rudiments of both rough construction and fine carpentry in a challenging and practical setting.

In 2001, determined to perfect his skills, he relocated to New York City. This proved to be a momentous decision. Working as a master carpenter and construction foreman helped him acquire more intimate knowledge of what it takes to restore homes, in a manner that satisfies demands of the client, and architect's original vision.

As a project manager, consultant and general contractor for a number of multimillion- dollar restorations, he has had the opportunity to work alongside world class designers and architects. These partnerships have taught him that returning homes to their former glory requires more than just time and talent - it takes passion.

Every employee and subcontractor he engages is screened to ensure that they bring the utmost in quality, integrity, and craftsmanship to the company he cherishes. He strives to provide the highest quality service and he'll treat your renovation as if it was the most important project he has ever undertaken. Because it is.

Voitec devotes his free time to his family. In addition, he enjoys soccer and architectural photography.
