The idea for PPSE was born on the tailgate of a pickup truck between two guys who were convinced that being a successful company in this specialized trade for the long haul meant making a fresh start and doing things differently.

We are boots on the ground kind of people with an unwavering commitment to do right by our customers, our employees and our families. Having worked and managed hundreds of major jobs up and down the Eastern US and Canada, we know precast and steel erection like the back of our hands and we take pride in being really good at it.  Hospitals, stadiums, government buildings, college campuses, you name it.  We've built it.  Using the latest engineering and construction methods, heavy equipment (real heavy...) and the grit and determination to get even the toughest jobs done safely and done right.

So, with rock solid experience from 20 years that each of us have in the field and the backbone to stand behind everything we do, we struck out on our own to build a company that is the best in the business from the ground UP.

We are always ready to roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty - every time, anytime.  You can expect the highest level of quality, safety and respect from us and we demand it from ourselves.  When we go to sleep at night, we want to be exhausted from a hard days' work and a job well done.

We look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
