Calling it “perhaps one of our most important projects,” Jon Weiss, a partner in EB Construction of Garden City (a division of Engel Burman), said the firm is proud to have built a children’s playhouse that has been presented to the Long Island Builders Institute (LIBI) as part of the trade association’s program to support various charities across Long Island.

Made of sturdy materials and detailed with welcoming colors of yellow, blue and red, the playhouse is proportioned to meet the needs of the most active children and it has been thoroughly tested by Jon’s two girls: 2½-year-old Harper and her 4½-year-old sister Dylan.

Weiss explained that the EB playhouse was displayed along with the efforts of other firms during LIBI’s Trade & Remodeling Expo that recently welcomed exhibitors from Long Island’s finest home and commercial contractors. Also welcoming the public were real estate developers of new homes and rental units, innovative building products and services, as well as an assortment of other specialty firms, including kitchen and bath suppliers, building material suppliers offering green products, flooring dealers, landscapers, security device supplies, appliance dealers and interior designers, real estate and related service professionals, residential brokers, bankers, mortgage bankers, insurance brokers and more.

“We were delighted to put our time, resources and expertise into creating a playhouse for charity that speaks to the creativity within every child,” stated Scott Burman, president of EB Construction. “We would like to think that when they open that bright red door it is about much more than simply walking into a child-sized house but into the limitless world of their imagination.”

Patrick Brennan, EB Construction’s superintendent, explained that they not only closely reviewed various plans that would make the perfect children’s playhouse but the nature of how best to construct it.

“For example, we made sure the playhouse has no sharp edges or exposed nails. Durability and functionality were key, and most important of all, whether it would be fun to play in,” Brennan observed.

EB Construction is a division of the Engel Burman Group, which has built more than $2 billion worth of residential, commercial, industrial, health care and senior care properties across the New York metropolitan area and currently manages almost $300 million worth of building projects each year. EB Construction is comprised of professionals who have more than 30 years of industry experience covering a broad and diverse range of expertise, including civil and site work, land development, residential multifamily, hospitality, medical, institutional, industrial, retail and commercial construction.
