Founded in 1978, Zucaro Construction has grown to become one of the most respected and competitive General Contractors in the Long Island and the Metropolitan Area. Its founder, Andrew Zucaro, formed his company with the traditional values and attention to details that have guided him throughout his professional career.
With field experience and an extensive background in commercial, industrial and high-end residential construction management,coupled with “old school” business ethics as his foundation, it is not surprising to find Andrew Zucaro on site, managing each project in detail from beginning to end, ensuring satisfaction every step of the way.

When combined with Zucaro Construction’s in-house crew, the result is a powerhouse team.
To complete projects beyond expectations, often ahead of schedule, and under budget, Andrew has assembled an invaluable team, adept at bringing projects together. The office management and project coordinators have been with Zucaro Construction for many years. With extensive degrees in architecture and business management, they are well versed in all areas of construction. They oversee all of the Project Managers, Supervisors, Foremen and office personnel for each project’s developments.
What is it that makes Zucaro Construction stand out in the industry?
Some would say its Andy’s extraordinary reputation built over years of dedication to his art, enabling him and his team to foresee potential issues in order to minimize them, keep costs lower, and allow for completion on schedule. Others would say it’s his invaluable long-standing relationship working with municipalities and utilities, working to expedite projects smoothly. Perhaps it is the attention to detail, which allows Zucaro Construction to overcome obstacles that have brought his competitors progress to a screeching halt.
Ultimately, the true difference is summed up by Andy himself…
“Our goal is to make projects fun rather than an inconvenience. Quite often, our clients become our dear friends. Attitude, dedication and experience are our secrets to success”
