In 1984, Gamal Tawfik, president and CEO of Heritage Construction and Development, graduated with honors from the Faculty of Fine Arts at Alexandria University in Cairo, Egypt. During and after college he worked under some of the best engineers in Egypt and was involved in building hotels such as the Holiday Inn in Zamalek, a cement factory, multiple medical clinics, and a series of high-rise residential apartments. Mr. Tawfik later immigrated to the United States in 1984, earned his citizenship on September 27th, 1991, and continued to pursued his “American Dream.”

In 1988 Mr. Tawfik founded a building company, GT Communities, committed to one common goal: to fulfill every homeowner’s dream of owning their own quality affordable home. That goal expanded to create an integrated company which included land acquisition, community development, home construction, sales, and marketing. The results of the company speak for themselves.

In 2008, Mr. Tawfik sold GT Communities to Adams Homes In 2013, Mr. Tawfik opened Heritage Construction and Development with the same common goal as GT, the quality affordable home.

Georgia Power named him GoodCents Builder of the Year for his emphasis on energy effective homes which he continues today through the EarthCents home certification. On top of Mr. Tawfik’s numerous awards and recognitions, he was also awarded the Professional Builder Designation by The National Housing Institute which is one of the highest honors achieved in the building industry.
