About Us


about_usTwo long time employees and friends of a local Restoration Contractor created Van-Go General Contracting. Pete Georgoutsos and John Katirgis had been involved in the building restoration trade since their teenage years. While attending college, the two men decided to invent a company that reflected their passion.

“The Art of Renovation”

Van-Go General Contracting was created in 1989. Van, a reference to the mode of transportation used by most contractors, and Go, an indication of Mr. Georgoutsos’ hyper-kinetic personality, the moniker, Van-Go, was also chosen in homage to the famous Dutch painter of a similar name, known for his passion and insight. The company has since developed a reputation of providing unsurpassed quality and service to the tri state area. Peter Georgoutsos assembled a team of carpenters, painters, masons and artisans that share the same passion for their trades, as well as electricians and plumbers who work for him on a contractual basis.
