Barbara Kavovit, otherwise known as “Barbara K”, is one of the leading figures within the commercial construction industry. Kavovit is the CEO and founder of Evergreen Construction, a business she founded in New York City in 2015.
Prior to Evergreen, Barbara led Anchor Construction into one of the largest, female-owned General Contracting companies in the United States.
When she was younger, she never imagined it possible to have her very own construction company. “At the time, it never occurred to me that construction was a career path for women,” she says.
However, for the past 20-plus years, that’s exactly what she’s accomplished. After completing multi-million-dollar projects for well-renowned companies within the first five years of her business’ operation, Barbara was dubbed in 2000 as Crain’s 100 Most Influential Women in Business.
In addition, Evergreen Construction is a New York State, and New York City certified Women Business Enterprise (WBE), as well as a nationally certified WBENC member.
