It started in 1975
Kelco Construction started from modest and naive beginnings, with a young entrepreneurial spirit, ambition and limited resources. John Kelly and Joe Provenzano and his team started from essentially nothing. A Family run organization, John Kelly and Joe Provenzano and his team in the beginning years, simply delivered on the promises made to their clients and in turn developed a trust and a brand recognition in the New York Tri-State Market of getting the job done under any conditions and environment.
Kelco’s rise to the premier full service landscape organization is a true MADE in NY story. Kelco has grown with the NY Market and has through the years flourished in the every changing highly competitive and demanding NYC Market place. John Kelly from day one has always believed in and implemented a strong company culture of FIELD Driven performance and know how. John Kelly and Joe Provenzano today are in the field performing extraordinary feats of construction solutions and providing the necessary field driven expertise that comes along with performing in the New York City Construction world.
In the past three decades Kelco has been one of the first landscape organizations to face the daunting construction logistics and demands of each project. As designers, landscape architects, technology and development has pushed the boundaries of what is possible and what is usable space KELO has been on the forefront of constructing designers and cleints visions alike. In the late 90’s and early 2000’s Kelco faced each new construction challenge, material innovation, and market demand with zero hesitation. Today if you look around NYC Kelco Construction can proudly say they have built an enormous part of the NEW – NEW YORK CITY.
Kelco has mastered the complex logistics of working in the busy, crowded context of New York City. Our precise planning enables us to out perform work in a highly competitive field.
Kelco President John Kelly notes that, “As the landscaper, we’re usually the last contractor on the scene, so sometimes we have to play catch-up to ensure that the overall project is completed according to schedule.” Yet the company leaves every job site with a finished look.
As the infrastructure and make up of New York Tri-State area began a transformation and resurgence, Kelco’s unwavering and lazer focus company culture of innovative construction strategies and timely project delivery, clients turned to this TRUE Made in NY organization, to build some of the NYC areas most intense and complex projects. Just as John Kelly and his organization has done in the beginning years and his team of passionate industry experts began to flourish, Kelco has developed with the market and has become the landscape construction organization behind some of our areas most celebrated and renounced landscapes. Today Kelco continues that same entrepreneurial spirit and ability, continuing to deliver on its initial company cultural and set of values. A true field driven organization, Kelco lets its work speak for itself.
