Varcon Construction was founded in 1994 by Angelo Riccio. From our earliest days, he always believed in doing the right thing for clients and in creating solutions that made peoples’ lives better and easier. It’s the standard on which we were founded. To this day, we remain a family-owned and operated construction company, retaining our original principles throughout every job we perform.
