Richard LoDuca - President
Richard LoDuca graduated from SUNY Stonybrook as an electrical engineer. In 1983 he began LoDuca as a home developer, which by 1987 grew into a public works and commercial contracting business. When deciding on a name for the company there were many options such as LoDuca Construction and LoDuca Contracting, but to Rich choosing LoDuca Associates was extremely important and also a bit personal. The Associates is where all of the employees of LoDuca come in. Rich wanted to build a workspace with a team like atmosphere where the employees worked well together, encouraging one another to grow and succeed.
The employees are what makes LoDuca stand out from other companies. We have such a diverse group of talented employees, enabling us to self perform much of our projects when the opportunity arises. For the past 36 years Rich and his team of employees have been working hard to win jobs and build them with the professionalism and precision needed to finish jobs on time and with the highest of quality. We take great pride in what we do here. All over Long Island and New York City LoDuca has left buildings, homes, train stations, greenhouses, firehouses and so much more as a permanent fixture and an example of who we are.
In Rich’s spare time he can be found working in his garage restoring old cars or on the racetrack where he races a Formula 500. He enjoys spending any time he can with his wife, 4 daughters and 16 grandkids.

Paul Gallina - Project Quality Manager
My past work experience working in both the architectural and engineering fields allowed me to obtain a clearer understanding of the phasing of a project and how a project is put together and viewed at completion by both LoDuca as well as our client. This understanding also aids me in the effective planning of the various work activities both to meet the anticipated schedule & budget.
As Project/ Quality Manager my technical experience & knowledge that I have obtained over the years in dealing with an array of different projects helped me in the preparation of the Company’s Quality & Safety manuals which have become an important aspect to both public & private projects. In conjunction with this I will produce the required shop drawings and submittals.
