A Garden City-based builder of senior housing is offering its construction services to other developers.

The Engel Burman Group’s in-house construction division is negotiating to build several projects on Long Island for other developers, and it expects to announce details about those projects in the second quarter of this year, according to Scott Burman, a principal with the group and president of the division, known as EB Construction.

Engel Burman has built nearly $2 billion in residential, commercial, industrial, health care and senior care properties across the region, the company said in a news release.
