A word from Joe Formella


"Having lived and worked in this community for over 18 years I have developed a keen understanding of the construction market, subcontractors and the local governmental agencies. I know how important it is to be personally involved in every project. My involvement includes assisting in land evaluation and selection, all aspects of dealing with numerous governmental agencies, assisting with the design and constructability analysis, through the overseeing of every aspect of the construction process. I believe this type of hands-on involvement assures our clients a completely successful project."
