CAGNY began with a small group of firms and individuals who came together in 1984 to pursue shared interests unique to large-scale, high-quality, primarily residential builders. As construction in NYC and State has evolved, so have our members. As a result of our founders’ vision, and the vision of CAGNY’s leaders today, CAGNY initiated several objectives critical to the success of large-scale development projects in New York City. Some of these objectives include collective bargaining and insurance reforms, development of safety, security and ethics standards, support of new construction technology, recruitment of women and minority-owned contractors, and legislative advocacy on issues relating to construction.
