“I personally have been in the construction field for over 40 years and this project was one of the most interesting that I have been involved with. From design to completion, this project was smooth with minimal disruption to the day to day operation of the facility. This is all due to the D’Angelo team that was on site from the beginning. This team was cooperative, collaborative and diligent during the entire project, especially during the startup of another large project on the campus.

In the future, I would not hesitate to contact D’Angelo Bros., Inc. for all of our site work, large or small.”
