My Parents, John and Diane started our company in Astoria in 1965. Now, 50 years later, my parents, my sister Michelle and I continue to bring our ethics and core values in all the projects we perform. Over five decades there have been challenges and triumphs, and we have worked through the challenges and celebrated the triumphs together in order to learn and grow into the company we are today. Together we have developed the skills needed for historic restoration, preservation, design build, commercial and residential construction.

We have always sought after projects that have been one of a kind and exciting. An example that we are very proud of is the restoration of the historic Liberty Theater that began in the year 2000. Another group of projects that required us to stretch and grow was the work we have done for Columbia Memorial Hospital in the health care sector.

Whether it be a flagship project like the historical Liberty or a challenging more modern project like CMH, our team has studied, developed and worked together to gather the tools, training, and leadership skills necessary to be successful and service the community.

With great pleasure I thank all of the wonderful employees, excellent subcontractors and suppliers and my family in this company endeavor. Most of all we are grateful to our customers and to the community which have been so supportive of our business.
