Our Founder; Joseph C. Tomei
Mr. Tomei founded Calcedo Construction Corporation in 1968, but his career in construction began 16 years prior, in 1952, at Speedway Construction, where he was hired as a truck driver/laborer, later advancing to a Foreman and then Superintendent Position. Here he would gain experience in all areas of concrete work, including building forms, installation of reinforcement, pouring and finishing of concrete and surveying and layout. From 1956 to 1968, Mr. Tomei would go on to work for various construction firms, in the role of Project Superintendent and then Project Manager/Estimator, where his experience and knowledge base would expand in building construction from foundations to masonry and interior finishes. During this time, he would pursue a Civil Engineering degree, attending evening courses at City College of New York. Mr. Tomei’s remarkable drive and an innate ability, however, would lead him to found his own company, Calcedo Construction Corporation. Upon incorporating in 1968, Calcedo engaged in public works projects for the Military and Governmental agencies. Mr. Tomei performed all of the estimating and administrating of all operations.
Over the years, through his diligence and personal involvement in every project, the cost range of the projects Calcedo would complete would grow from $500,000 to $50,000,000. As the firm increased in capacity of work, estimators and office personnel were brought on to the team.
His love and devotion for the construction industry has been passed on to his son who now has taken on the role of President to the company.
