A.P. Construction, Inc. is a family-owned, 3rd generation, general construction firm whose humble beginnings began over six decades ago, installing pipe in the cobble-stoned streets of Philadelphia. After many years of great effort and dedication, A.P. began contracting utility work in the entire Tri-State area. We then started building facilities, reconstructing tunnels, and managing million-dollar projects. Partners and clients embraced our superior work ethic and the corporation prospered hand-in-hand with business relationships.

To hold a tradition that was started over more than 6 1/2 decades ago is an enormous accomplishment within itself. It is a legacy that began with Amedeo Petrongolo, Sr. who founded the company. Needless to say, the letters “A.P.” were much more than a logo to him – they stood for his name and his reputation. He took great pride in the work A.P. performed, always stressing commitment to quality and client satisfaction – and that legacy continues today, 70 years later.

This A.P. reputation based on hard work, teamwork, and perseverance continues at this very moment, on every A.P. job site around the Delaware Valley. Developing relationships with our clients and subcontractors via hard work was established in 1954.

A.P. Construction is proud to celebrate 68 years in the construction industry.


Amedeo Petrongolo, Sr. established A.P. Construction, Inc. 70 years ago — based on the principles of commitment, teamwork and core values. On a daily basis, we uphold our founder’s vision to deliver high-quality services to our clients, build long-lasting relationships through our hard work and insist upon giving back to the surrounding communities that help us thrive.
