GLY Construction has grown into one of the region’s largest and most respected locally owned general contractors with a portfolio that includes Microsoft, Lincoln Square Tower, and Overlake Medical Center.

The company prides itself on creating sustainable, innovative, and efficient work spaces. GLY spends its days perfecting the homes and offices of others, but we think their home base is pretty sleek, too.
