Falco Construction Corporation
Falco History: Yesterday to Today
Falco Construction Corp was founded in 1952 by Joseph and Susan Falco with nothing but determination and a dream. In the next 50 plus years the corporation built a solid reputation in the pile driving industry. In 1962 Falco established its headquarters and shop facilities in Bergen Beach, Brooklyn, NY and later, in 1969 moved into its present location.
Joseph Falco, "Joe" to most people, was not just the founder of the company. His character and integrity set the stage for the company, and a great work ethic became part of its corporate culture.
Joseph Falco was known for his tireless efforts, his sense of fairness, and his honorable handshake. He truly loved work, and his greatest pleasure was being on a jobsite, enjoying the energy and the people that were a critical part of his world. In all facets of the company's growth, Susan Falco (Sue) provided admirable support complimentary to Joe's efforts.
Falco Construction Corp. has always been and continues to be family owned and operated. We have successfully completed over 1 billion dollars of substructure foundation installations for buildings, highways, bridges, and retaining structures.
Joseph Falco was an entrepreneur whose dynamism helped to transform the pile industry into a highly productive operation by developing assembly-line like moves, to maximize the efforts. Today, after several decades, Falco personnel in the field, still follow these methods to great advantage. Joseph's wife Susan served as Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer for 58 years.
Like all great leaders, Joe Falco spotted and picked the best people and groomed them in his working ways. K.K. Ramamurthy (popularly known as “Kay”) joined the company in 1969 and quickly became Joe’s right hand man and remained so, for over 3 decades, until Joe’s death in 2005.
Salvatore Falco, Project Engineer is Kay's right hand person. Mr. Falco has a Bachelor degree from St. Francis College and a J.D. from Suffolk University Law School. He is experienced in project management, estimating, preparation of engineering drawings, job take offs, cost analysis and related work.
Dave Heilferty, Project Engineer is an invaluable part of the estimating and engineering team at Falco. Mr. Heilferty has a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering, from Manhattan College, and an Associates Degree in Construction Management, from New York University. He has over 35 years experience in design, inspection, estimating and management of all phases of construction.
Mark Zlotkiewicz is a brilliant mechanic and innovator who under Joe’s guidance and support did and still does some outstanding creative work such as developing and adopting existing equipment to suit job requirements. Today, Mark is the “go to” man for all equipment needs at Falco Construction.
Barbara Mister is the office manager who has been managing office affairs efficiently for over 3 decades.
Last but not least, Madeline (Lynne) Falco. As said before, Joe Falco picked the best people and they were his choice to run Falco’s infrastructure. Lynne Falco, President of the company, oversees all company operations as well as serving as liaison with City and State agencies. She has insight into construction activity in the City and has a close and valued association with the General Contractors Association.
