Construction Today - June 2017 - 15

COVER STORY: THE SWEET CONSTRUCTION GROUP

important, Alessio stresses that Sweet makes its project managers
available to clients at all times. "We always make our management available and easily accessible for clients' needs."
Similarly, it is clear that Alessio also makes himself consistently
available to his own team. He maintains an open-door policy, and
stays involved in each step of each project, from start to finish. In
an industry where such detailed jobs can easily be mismanaged, his
involvement is refreshing.
Part of Alessio's success in guiding Sweet might be due to his education. Many construction leaders have management backgrounds,
but Alessio came from an architecture background. "I knew I wanted
to be a builder," Alessio recalls. "What I really wanted to do was also
learn about the details; I wanted to make sure I understood every
detail about creativity."
Another part of Alessio's management success is his encouragement of a family-first mentality. To understand why that mentality
exists, one must first understand that Sweet is somewhat of a family
business itself. Many employees are connected in one way or another to the Alessio tree, either directly or through word of mouth by
family ties. This contributes to a supportive work environment for
employees, which has proven successful for Sweet.

Well-Known Clientele
Keeping an eye on detail has led to work for high-profile clients in
Manhattan. In 2001, for example, Sweet Construction won the bid
to rehab the Biltmore Theatre in Times Square (currently called
the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre), originally opened in 1925. After

high-end jobs would come to us, we would
always finish those jobs on time and on
budget, never having to walk away." That
ultimately led to a business built on a
great word of mouth reputation. Equally
