Albert Dean Blazevic
Albert Dean Blazevic formed ADB Construction in 1970. Al began his career in the mid 1950’s as a cement finisher with Jesco Concrete and Masonry where he worked until the late 1960’s. He supervised work for various general contractors until starting ADB Construction.
ADB began as a small tenant improvement and demolition-style concrete contractor. In addition to concrete work, they also began to performed minor masonry projects. Work was primarily small commercial and tenants such as Brookdale Shopping Center was one of their main clients. In the mid 1970’s Al’s two sons, Barry and Nick, began working in the business as laborers. After finishing Union Apprenticeships, Barry as a Bricklayer and Nick as a Cement Finisher, Al was able to begin expanding the business. Al’s philosophy was simple, surround yourself with good people, take care of your clients, and grow the business together.
Through the late 1980’s ADB Construction began doing slightly larger projects that focused in the municipal, retail, and petroleum sectors. Barry ran the field Masonry Operations and Nick ran the field Concrete Operations. ADB grew into multiple crews but still kept the philosophy of small business with the personal touch.
Al is currently retired and spends a majority of his winter in Arizona. During the summer months, Al continues to visit the office daily to enjoy a half of cup of coffee and talk current events around the office. The construction industry is in his blood. His expertise is endless and we are very fortunate to have him share it with us.
We are a family business...with family based cultures and morals. We employ multiple generations of some of the best skilled Union tradespeople in the industry. We are a company that behaves more like a family than we do a business. When you work you ADB, you become a welcomed member of the family.
