Decades of Service

Since 1956, we have been a leader in challenging site development, concrete construction, demolition, and environmental solutions through our sister companies in the DiGeronimo family. Independence Construction was formed to bring a new approach to construction management and full scope execution of large commercial and industrial construction projects. Regardless of the service, our companies strive to push the envelope when it comes to adopting better methods for better results for our clients.

In July 2019, Independence Construction acquired Bear Construction, now entitled Bear IC, a 40+ year firm that provides general contracting, design-build, and construction management services throughout Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. With similar core values and earned reputation for quality workmanship and integrity, the acquisition only made sense as Independence Construction expands its construction management services.

In October 2020, Independence Construction acquired the construction management business of Donley’s Inc., further expanding our capacity and ability to diversify our portfolio by creating one of the largest and most capable CM firms in Northeast Ohio. Our companies have been doing business together for 48 years, and adding their personnel and expertise in larger institutional projects is an ideal partnership.

We bring our experience and reputation for honesty, integrity, and outstanding performance to the world of design and management in order to ensure the best results for our partners, our subcontractors, and our community.
