Gregory Harth spent countless hours during his adolescence building Legos on his family’s living room carpet, designing endless creations. After receiving a degree in civil engineering from the University of Delaware, he moved out West to Colorado where he joined Peter Kiewit Sons to work on a number of high-level, construction-focused engineering projects, including the development of a successful $1.2 billion proposal. While working with Kiewit, he helped pioneer the design-build model as a possible procurement option on large-scale, complicated projects.
In 2003, Greg returned home to join Harth Builders as a partner alongside his father, Allyn Harth, who founded the company in 1996. He officially took over ownership of the company in 2008. Over the course of 20 years, Greg increased Harth’s company and revenue from 700k and two employees to more than $20 million with 80 employees—all while maintaining net profitability and a culture of autonomy and accountability. He introduced the design-build processes and model to residential remodeling and custom homes.
From architectural design and remodeling to additions and meticulous finishing work, Harth has an award-winning reputation, expertise and acute attention to detail, allowing him to carefully interpret every customer’s unique vision and bring their ideal home renovation to life.
Under Greg’s leadership, Harth Builders has won more than 50 local, regional and national Contractor of the Year awards four National Chrysalis awards, the Philadelphia Business Journal’s prestigious “50 on Fire” and “Soaring 76” awards, and more. Harth Builders’ mission is to make your home your favorite place.
