The Associated Construction Company was incorporated in New London, CT in 1942 by Angelo J.M. Giardini. The organization originally was founded as a military defense contractor and constructed various base facilities for the U.S. Navy at its submarine Base in Groton, CT. With a growing need for housing, Associated increasingly expanded into residential construction.
In 1946, Associated relocated its headquarters to Hartford, CT to help broaden and expand its client base for construction services throughout Connecticut. In Hartford, the firm’s reputation for quality construction work in the areas of housing development, commercial offices, retail facilities, industrial plants and manufacturing space, hospitals and healthcare facilities, institutional structures, and water & sewage treatment plants, grew and allowed many various opportunities for Associated to grow its business.
Today, the firm is led by President Joseph Jankowski who spent the past 30+ years working with both Angelo and Thomas Giardini. Mr. Jankowski is responsible for setting the strategic priorities for Associated Construction, as well as providing executive direction for the company’s continual growth. Mr. Jankowski began his career at Associated in 1984 and has led efforts to secure and build all manner of projects including commercial, healthcare, hospitality, broadcasting, multi-family residential and treatment plants across New England. Joe is an active member of various industry organizations, Joseph also serves on the board of The AGC.
