Goodea Construction Company was founded in 1960 by Richard Goodwill and Thomas Gildea. Richard and Tom combined their expertise in estimating/project management and field engineering/supervision to create a dynamic company entering its 60th year in business. From the very humble beginnings of building new steps for the Meadville Tribune, to the hundreds of successfully completed projects, Goodea Construction Company continues to be a successful contractor in the tristate area.

The company utilizes a highly skilled union workforce to successfully complete sophisticated and difficult projects. Projects completed range from the McComb Fieldhouse at Edinboro University to constructing the original Dad’s Dog Food plant in Meadville (now Smucker’s).

Over its many years of experience, Goodea Construction Company has developed a true expertize in concrete construction. The company self-performs all phases of concrete construction including excavation, reinforcing steel, forming, pumping and backfill. These projects include complex building foundations, mass concrete pours, water/wastewater tanks and equipment foundations. We own and are comfortable with several different “gang” type forming systems. On one particular project, Goodea Construction Company successfully completed a 1,200 CY continuously pumped pour in a cofferdam 20 feet under water.

Goodea Construction Company employs an in-house staff of estimators, project managers, project administrators and accounting personnel to support larger jobs. We are very comfortable with projects that require subcontracts and purchase orders, shop drawing review/approval and certified payroll.

In summary, Goodea Construction Company enjoys a long-standing reputation for quality, integrity, and timely completion of their construction projects. The company has many repeat customers that have come back to Goodea Construction Company year after year for exemplary construction service.
