Montagno Construction, Inc. is a mid-sized construction management company based in central Connecticut and serving clients in healthcare, private education, nonprofit organizations, municipalities, and more. Kurt Montagno, president of the firm, shared his thoughts and tips on 2022. “We have a decent backlog and 2022 should shape up well,” he said.
Montagno Construction is finishing up nearly $30 million worth of work with Phase 2 of mixed-use Brookfield Village, renovations to a skilled nursing facility for Masonicare in Wallingford, and the landmark building Mill River Discovery Center in Stamford.
For 2022, the renovate-as-new Hinsdale Elementary School in Winsted, now in full swing, will continue well into the year and Montagno Construction is starting Valley Townhouses, a $16 million housing complex for Elm City Communities in New Haven. Also, the Meriden Public Library renovation will be starting soon.
“But questions remain with the supply issues we experienced in 2021,” Montagno continued. “We can’t just expect things will be available as they used to be.”
To deal with supply chain delays, Montagno Construction has started to buy all supplies and materials within the first few weeks of beginning construction. “By taking action in this proactive way, we are helping to mitigate the unknowns on our projects and for our clients,” Montagno stated.
