Since 1946, J.R. Prisco, Inc. has been providing an ever-expanding list of discerning private and corporate clients with personalized service and quality results that are hard to match within the construction industry. J.R. Prisco has evolved over the years to include engineering, design and construction management services to all facets of the industry.

Along the way we have incorporated the latest technologies and job control systems to assist in real-time evaluations of job progress.


Pre-Construction Services

The pre-construction phase of a project is as critical as the construction itself. During pre-construction, we help plan the work to be implemented during construction. Pre-construction services provide clients an early analysis of the effects that materials, equipment systems, techniques and schedules will have on project time and cost. There is no substitute for proper planning.

J.R. Prisco’s approach to pre-construction services is to serve both the owner and the design team as a source of accurate information from which educated decisions can be made concerning the project’s cost, quality level and timing.

We coordinate J.R. Prisco’s estimating, value engineering, scheduling and constructability services with the design team’s design activities. We do this in the spirit of partnering and maintain an open-book approach to communication and information sharing. We assign strong leadership to the pre-construction team so the client can reap the benefits pre-construction has to offer.

By properly planning the project during pre-construction, we can work together to eliminate surprises in the field during the construction phase.


J.R. Prisco provides clients with a complete source for turnkey design/build services. For speed, lower cost and higher quality, design/build delivery can’t be beat. Simply put, design/build creates a single contract between the owner and J.R. Prisco. While other delivery methods require the owner to contract separately with an architect and contractor, design/build ties all elements together and relies on the roles, relationships and responsibilities of every participant.

The group includes construction and engineering professionals with the experience and knowledge necessary to bring a turnkey project from concept to completion. In addition to the dedicated design/build group, much of J.R. Prisco’s multi-disciplined staff is immediately available for the planning and permitting phases of a project. We include a wide network of subconsultants and subcontractors with proven track records to round out our team.

Construction Management

J.R. Prisco offers professional construction management services that are tailored to the size and complexity of any given project – and backed by a corporate commitment to total quality management.

On complex assignments involving numerous projects and contractors, J.R. Prisco construction management services typically begin during design and include:

  • Schedule and budget evaluations
  • Value engineering
  • Constructability reviews
  • Accuracy checks on cost estimates
  • Weighing project alternatives
  • Structuring bid packages for lowest cost construction
  • Monitoring and coordinating daily construction activities

General Contracting

General contracting has been the backbone of J.R. Prisco since 1960. The most commonly used form of construction contracts provide the owner with a lump sum guarantee based on a completed owner provided design. We manage and coordinate all trades and interact with owner hired design professionals.

Facility/Site Maintenance Contracts

J.R. Prisco delivers facilities management services to all types of commercial, industrial, pharmaceutical and healthcare facilities. This program provides single source project management for maintenance and capital projects. Facilities management allows us to become an extension of an owner’s maintenance, purchasing and engineering departments, and puts the strength of our experience to work so the owner can concentrate on core business issues. Our in-house ability to perform the maintenance provides you with a guarantee of the workmanship and commitment to safety.
