Joe proved himself to be highly capable in the oversight, time-management and construction of one of the county’s more aggressive projects. During a three month summer break, Joe while a principal with his previous firm, successfully oversaw the completion of five different classroom additions on five elementary campuses in Manatee County.

I am pleased to write in support of Formella Construction, and in particular Joseph Formella and Michael Vernoy. I have personally known and worked with these two individuals on various construction and renovation projects at Mote Marine Laboratory for more than 15 years. Under their management over 60,000 square feet of new and remodeled facilities were constructed at Mote, all completed on schedule and on budget.

On behalf of United Community Centers, Inc., I extend my thanks and appreciation to Joe Formella and the entire staff at Formella Construction for doing such an outstanding job in building our new Restroom, Press Box, and Concession Facilities. We were very impressed with the organization and professionalism of the office staff, on-site project manager, the adherence to schedule, the weekly construction meetings, and the adherence to the budget.
