A Trusted Partner

"Their level of professionalism, dedication, and commitment to the safety and success of a project is resolute from the beginning to the very end. They have displayed all of the qualities of a true partner and I am grateful for the positive experience that I have had with this team of professionals."

-Leonard Corazzi, Director of Finance and Operations at Bethel Park School District

"During the school year, our entire building is being renovated in three different phases and two of those phases are occurring while students are in the building. To this point there has been little disruption to our learning environment given the scope of the work. The two on-site managers are professional, productive, and able to answer my questions as the project moves along. Massaro has my recommendation for this type of work in the future."

-Robert Scherrer, Ed. D., Principal at Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy
