Building Excellence – Safely… For Over Sixty Years.

AP Construction, Inc. is a family-owned, 3rd generation, general construction firm whose humble beginnings began installing pipe in the cobble-stoned streets of Philadelphia. After years of hard work and dedication, AP started contracting utility work in the entire Tri-State area. AP then began building facilities, rehabbing tunnels, and managing million dollar projects. Partners and clients reacted to AP’s superior work ethic and the corporation prospered hand-in-hand with business relationships.

This AP reputation based on integrity, teamwork, and hard work continues at this very moment, on every AP job site around the Delaware Valley. Developing relationships via a tradition of intelligence and hard work was established in 1954, at the inception of the company. To hold a tradition that was started over 6 decades ago is an enormous accomplishment within itself — and we couldn’t be more proud. It’s a legacy that began with Amedeo Petrongolo, Sr. who founded the company. Needless to say, the letters “AP” were much more than a logo to him – they stood for his name and reputation. He took great pride in the work AP performed, always stressing commitment to quality and client satisfaction — and that legacy continues today. Review our timeline here.

AP is more than just two letters of the alphabet to our company – they stand for our founder’s name and reputation.
