BRISTOL – D’Amato Construction Co., Inc. is a third generation family-run business that has been a part of the Greater Bristol community for nearly 60 years.

“We provide that personal touch, but can also handle the significant and complex projects,” said Anthony D'Amato, operations manager for D’Amato Construction Co., Inc.

“Although we’re family-owned, it does not limit our abilities in the commercial, industrial or governmental arenas,” he continued, adding that a family-owned business “provides that little extra that everyone is looking for that you can’t really find in today’s corporate oriented companies.”

D’Amato Construction Co., Inc., – which, today, now stands with some of most capable firms in Connecticut – was established in 1961 when Edward Sr., his wife, Patricia, and brother, Anthony (Tut) D’Amato, started D’Amato Construction General Contractors. The company later became D’Amato Construction Co., Inc. in April 1967, specializing in commercial, industrial and niche market construction.

Nearly six decades later, the company is managed by Edward Sr. and his children, along with the third generation, who coordinate the daily operations and build on skills and lessons learned over years.

D’Amato Construction’s Central Connecticut location makes it easily accessible to customers within the state, in addition to those in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. It specializes in a diverse number of disciplines that include, but are not limited to, athletic and recreation, banking and financial, childcare and early childhood, commercial, concrete and specialties, demolition (Class A), K-12 educational, governmental, healthcare and institutionalized health, industrial, luxury residential, mission-critical, Nucor Building Systems pre-engineered buildings and utilities among others.

Although a majority of D’Amato’s work is done outside of Greater Bristol, the company regularly contributes to its local community and does not turn down projects for small facilities or small business owners.

“If someone has a small problem with their facility, the answer is yes, we do that kind of work, that’s the kind of work that built our company,” Tony D’Amato said. “We want to see Bristol succeed. We’re dependent on the greater success of the area.”

The company has offered services to clients for projects that range from $300 up to $68 million. All personnel are available to new and repeat customers.

D’Amato is designed and has been tested to be fully functional during long-term power outages and threats from severe weather, stocking large quantities of materials at its 50,000 square foot warehouse facility as well as other crucial consumables. The administration and supervisory staff can work on generator power, while the entire fleet has the ability to keep moving for upwards of a month with the fuel capacity, compressed gases and lubricants that are housed for emergencies.

“A great number of resources have been into business continuity and preparedness, it’s what really sets our firm apart from others in our market,” Tony D’Amato said.

D’Amato Construction Co., Inc. specializes in Class A demolition and can provide demolition and removal solutions for cantilevered, elevated, freestanding and pedestal type structures. The company has the unique ability to structurally dismantle a facility while maintaining its normal operations.

D’Amato also specializes in new installation of critical water and sewer utilities, boasting a deep bench of specialized tools, uniquely outfitted equipment and shoring apparatus that is used in installation and repair. It also has the ability to move and transport on/off-road, oversized and overweight items and components.
