Who We Are

A Solid Foundation

In 1905 Peter Consigli, a skilled mason, established Peter Consigli & Sons in Milford, Massachusetts on the cornerstones of hard work, integrity and pride in craftsmanship.

A Tale of Two Brothers

Anthony and Matthew Consigli started out in the family business as kids working in their father’s lumberyard packaging nails and later as teenagers digging graves and trenches. In 1997, after gaining experience in nearly every position in the company from laborer to project manager, the brothers took the helm as fourth generation owners of the century-old business. They shared a joint vision and understanding of what was most important to grow a successful company—their people.

Together, they’ve cultivated a culture that feels more like a family—one that encourages teamwork, camaraderie and good corporate citizenship—with a strong focus on client relationships and the impact Consigli’s work has on its communities. Always accessible to their people and clients, Anthony and Matthew are committed to carrying on their family’s legacy as genuine builders.
