WHO WE ARE
Corrado Construction Company is a family-owned merit-shop site development firm headquartered in New Castle. Industries we serve include commercial, industrial, energy, institutional and residential development. While Corrado provides traditional services such as earthmoving, excavation, utility installation, demolition and restoration, we also offer innovative design-build teaming, value engineering, cost analysis, constructability assessments and project sequencing. Our employees are the key to our success. Corrado’s field supervision alone averages 25 years of experience in the construction industry.
STUFF WE MAKE
We sculpt dirt - from farmland to demolished industrial plants - into sites that contain labyrinths of underground utilities, thousands of tons of asphalt, hundreds of thousands of tons of imported dirt. Sites that house million-square-foot warehouses, well-known convenience stores and car dealerships, university housing, sports complexes and secondary schools. Each project is a puzzle and Corrado thrives on putting the pieces together in the most economical and efficient ways possible.

WHAT ARE YOUR JOB DUTIES?
As soon as a project is awarded, I talk through the job with the Project Manager so that I understand what is needed to ensure the job goes smoothly. I oversee the day to day operations of the project, making sure the crew understands what needs to be done each day and how to do it safely, ordering materials and supplies, meeting with clients, and keeping a daily log of work completed, issues that arose and quantities of materials delivered and installed.
WHAT DOES THIS JOB AND WORKING AT THIS COMPANY MEAN TO YOU?
This job is my life, my home. It’s where I live. It’s who I am. I’m 50 years old. I’ve worked for the Corrados for 23 years. I’ve grown with the family and the company. I make a good living, provide for my kids. Every day I’m challenged in different ways. When I get off work, I leave the site knowing I’ve contributed to the progress of the job.
You need to have common sense in this position. As a foreman, you need to be willing to learn and willing to work. You have to be open-minded. Someone may have a better idea. Don’t shut them out because you have more experience.
To oversee a site project, you need to know about equipment, have basic math skills, be able to calculate percentages. I visualize the work that needs to be done each day and what it should look like when my crew completes it. Setting daily goals helps me stay on track and keep my crew moving.
WHAT YOU’LL DO
As a Foreman, you lead your men. You take responsibility for whatever happens on that site, whatever your men do. Regardless of where I am on the site, it’s my job to make sure my crew understands what needs to be done that day and that they’re doing it safely.
I started out as a laborer, learning how to set up lasers for grades and how to install pipework. Once I started operating equipment, I learned what each piece of equipment was capable of doing. In time, I started running my own jobs – small ones at first. Now I can run any size project no matter the size, challenges or schedule.
