Construction runs in the blood of the D'Agostini family.
Eugene D'Agostini, whose father was a utility contractor, built his
first industrial building when he was only 21 years old and attending college for a different profession.
"I went to college, then law school and became a lawyer," he says.
"But I always had a passion for construction." He built and leased
his first machine shop in 1971. Although he practiced law for many
years, it wasn't his first passion and he founded D'Agostini Land
Company in the early 1980s.
Today, he shares ownership of the company with his five daughters. They are Sara D'Agostini, Emily D'Agostini-Kunath, Gina D'Agostini, Julie Pirra and Maria Lukosazich.
The company prides itself on its work in the industrial market. It
has earned a solid reputation for being able to deliver a variety of
industrial projects in a timely manner and with professionalism.
An in-house design and engineering staff helps D'Agostini Land
Company react quickly to the demands of its customers.
"Our magic sauce is the ability to deliver versatile, quality product
quickly," D'Agostini says. "We design these buildings for different
requirements. We start the construction process with the idea that
we can service 95 percent of the needs out there with minor tweaks.
We've been doing this so long that we know a lot of the key components that will make a deal."
