Several years ago I recognized a need for a quality minority owned General Contractor in the southwest region of Pennsylvania. With the assistance of the Federal Government 8(a) Program, I started with nothing but my personal reputation and a business name that would reflect my intentions.

Today, I am proud of my decision and proud to hear clients claim that Sterling Contracting has become a reputable, quality General Contractor. The Sterling philosophy remains the same: Provide the best service that balances the quality of a commitment with the financial resource within a timely manner.

Our efforts can be seen with the broad range of experience and repeat business with reputable organizations. Our abilities within the built environment are continually advancing.

I am confident that my staff will professionally exceed your expectations.
