About Us


YCC pavers hard at work.


Founded in 1946 by Edward J. Petrillo, YCC is one of the few construction firms in the nation that has continuously operated for over half a century—without interruption and under the same ownership. We have successfully completed nearly 2,000 projects since our inception. 

From the beginning, we made decisions that set us on course for success and have given
us unique staying power. We negotiated our first design-build contract over 40 years ago—decades before this construction delivery method came into its own. Charged with rebuilding the Yonkers Raceway, we foresaw that privatization and design/build would provide new opportunities for contractors and owners.

From our roots as a highway contractor, we diversified and evolved to keep pace with the ever-changing construction marketplace. Today our portfolio includes a wide variety of projects, including construction of new and expanded water treatment plants, renovation of New York City watershed dams, reconstruction of tri-state region infrastructure, remediaton
of environmentally contaminated sites,  and building commercial developments.

With a commitment to our people and the willingness to explore alternative approaches and solutions to construction, YCC has its staff thoroughly prepared for any challenge. Our expertise in diverse construction spheres—and a solid reputation and client base throughout the eastern seaboard—will serve us well into the future.
