Topping-Off Celebration at Overlake Hospital

what we’re about – building a legacy
of quality + service.

Building is in our DNA. What we do is important work, creating places where people live, work, learn, play and gather. Our work has a permanence that impacts our communities for decades. We honor that with a commitment to people and quality that lasts.
Jim Karambelas, CEO, President

Our work helps define and shape communities. It’s important that it meets user needs and stands the test of time. After 45 years dedicated to quality building and client advocacy in Washington, we’re proud of the legacy we’ve built and excited about the future of design and construction in our region.


we love what we do. Planning, solving problems, and seeing a project come together gets our juices flowing. We come from a tradition of craftsmanship, while continually enhancing our skills with innovations that improve delivery. We understand that construction impacts how communities function and grow, and we honor that with a commitment to people and quality that lasts.


We’re building relationships while we’re building projects. Teamwork is the foundation of our approach. GLY puts great emphasis on the cohesion of our internal teams, and genuine collaboration with clients and colleagues. Loyalty and trust come from working together, pursuing common goals, and the mutual satisfaction of a job well done. Start to finish, we take care of our clients.
