Union Shop Founded in 1945
Since our founding in 1945, Corrado American has been a client-focused organization committed to the highest standards in everything we do. Our founder, Joseph S. Corrado, coined the phrase “The Corrado Way,” which became an aspirational credo that guided our efforts then and still does today. This credo represents the notion that hard work and diligence bring their own reward and this inner drive for excellence underpins our long record of accomplishment.
Corrado American has truly built Delaware. From the Christiana Hospital’s many phases to the old Wanamakers, the former MBNA to DuPont’s many campuses, we have been an integral part of shaping Delaware into the State it is today. With over 75 years of field experience, Corrado American has the knowledge and commitment necessary to see challenging projects through to completion while avoiding obstacles and pitfalls before they have a major impact on project schedules and budgets.
We are pros at pouring pump pads, tank pads and foundations, water tank foundations and pipe supports, and the installation of water and sewer lines, manholes, and storm water facilities. We also offer excavation, curbing, sidewalks, paving, erosion control and demolition.
We have experience in demolishing and removing existing rails systems, performing earthwork and sub-base preparation, and making storm/water and drainage improvements as well as road improvements at rail crossings. We have installed entire loop track systems as well as repaired existing tracks.
Serving onsite electrical and mechanical contractors as well as GCs, CMs and owners, we provide logistical support, day-to-day maintenance, and material transportation and haul-away services at chemical, power, and petroleum plants, as well as refineries.
