We build a solid foundation of trust and expertise.
LEFKO Construction evolved out of three generations of builders and entrepreneurs. The company began operations in 2004, when brothers David Lefkovits and Marc Lefkovits, both Georgia Tech engineers, decided to team up with their father Tomas Lefkovits. Tomas had previously run a large and successful construction company in his native Venezuela.
LEFKO Construction’s first project was in the City of East Point, near Atlanta, after which the company quickly won accolades and more projects. Since then, the company has continued to grow by being a trusted business partner to numerous private and public entities in the Greater Atlanta Region.
Today, LEFKO’s core group of professionals safeguard the quality and process of each project, executing each project from start to finish with the goal to always exceed clients’ expectations.
The key ingredients of LEFKO’s ongoing success are professionalism, work ethic and strong values. From Tomas and Marc on down, there is a commitment to transparent communication, outstanding customer service, as well as extensive construction expertise and a unique ability
to get things done.
