Northland Associates Inc. is a full-service General Contractor and Construction Manager, founded in 1982. We have been constructing commercial, industrial, institutional and infrastructure projects continuously including a wide variety of renovation and new construction projects.

We have established deep roots in Northern and Central New York. We have worked on hundreds of projects throughout most of New York and other Eastern and Mid-West states for over forty years. Our projects include a wide range of work, large and small, public and private, diversified in style, method and character.

Our clients include the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York, the New York State Office of General Services, General Services Administration, U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, the State University Construction Fund and many cities, counties and school districts around New York State.

Our college campus experience includes SUNY Potsdam, SUNY Buffalo, SUNY Fredonia, SUNY Upstate Medical University, SUNY Canton, St Lawrence University, SUNY Binghamton, Cornell University, Onondaga Community College, SUNY Cortland, SUNY Delhi, SUNY Plattsburg, SUNY Albany, SUNY Oswego, SUNY New Paltz and Syracuse University.

Many of our projects are for repeat customers. Developers, public and private owners alike especially appreciate our careful attention to detail. Our emphasis on value, efficiency and our on-time delivery record are also highly regarded by all our clients. Many of our projects are in functioning facilities where care and sensitivity must be exercised to maintain daily operations and safe conditions for those near and affected by our work. The relationships and expertise that has developed as a result of our experiences is something that Northland is proud of and considers to be pivotal to our achievements to date and more importantly our future.

The range of values of individual projects is from under one hundred thousand dollars to over two hundred million but we understand that all projects are important to our clients regardless of the price. Northland handles most of the projects including all the larger ones and JDS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Northland, is available for maintenance, repair, renovations, and smaller projects of that nature.

Much of our core staff have worked together for 15 to 20 years, bringing their collective construction knowledge to benefit each project. We have completed some challenging and complex projects and have done so very safely.

We approach construction as collaboration amongst client, design professionals, contractors, and end users. We work hard at the details of building – budgets, schedules, quality, safety, environment and managing risks. Our team of project managers, superintendents, tradesmen, and support staff is made up of people who have the experience and desire to get the job done. We assure you that if selected to perform work for you, we will treat your project with importance and respect.
