Barletta Companies Looks Forward to Celebrating 100 Years In Business By Jay Adams CEG CORRESPONDENT

It has endured for nearly a century, four generations of family, as strong as the structures it has built. Yet, amazingly, Barletta Companies — a renowned firm that has had a part in building some of the most famous projects in and around Boston for decades —began with a single shovel. One Shovel, One Dream In 1914, before America had even thought about entering the first World War, Vincenzo Barletta, an Italian immigrant, built the foundation of his own American dream when he established the V. Barletta Company in Roslindale, Mass. “He started with a very basic piece of equipment — a shovel. His company built masonry walls and concrete sidewalks, installed small underground utilities — that type of work,” said his great-grandson, current President Vincent F. Barletta, the fourth generation of family ownership and management. “The office was in his home in Roslindale. Back then, there Vincent F. Barletta, and the wasn’t nearly the volume of president fourth generation of paperwork as there is in the family ownership and business now, but what there management at the was, he did right at the kitchen Barletta Companies. table. In fact, before we moved to the Canton office in 2004, that house was still part of our corporate headquarters.” Vincenzo’s new company grew slowly and despite financial setbacks, the work began to pay off. Vincenzo became an outstanding builder, winning an award for the Fore River Bridge, the first of many that his firm would earn over the decades. So, how does a construction company thrive for nearly a century? “Through a combination of hard work, perseverance,

dedication, flexibility and being at the right place at the right time, which I suppose could be called ‘luck,’” said Barletta. “We’ve always had family members in management, and have been fortunate to have employees who care deeply for the company and its future.” Surviving the Depression During the Great Depression, Vincenzo and company dug deeper in the earth and in its own reserves. “People have two choices when they run into hardships,” said Barletta. “You can either learn from adversity, or you can let it beat you. He took his lumps and kept going.” In 1929, Barletta won a $612,000 contract to construct sections of the Neponset Valley Sewer System for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. “That same job would be worth almost $8 million today, and certainly it helped keep the firm going through some very tough times,” said Barletta. When World War II arrived, Barletta contributed see BArlETTA page 5

Being small enough to fit into lessthan-roomy spaces is great. So is a tremendous amount of power. But if that’s all an excavator has to offer, it will never be a Doosan.

It’s easy to maintain with centralized grease points, convenient hose routing

Mass. Road, Bridge Projects Come in Over Budget, Late WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) An investigation has found that nearly half of all road and bridge projects in Massachusetts are over budget and more than one-third are not completed on time. A study by the New England Center for Investigative Reporting and reported Aug. 14 by the Telegram & Gazette, found that in the last four fiscal years, contractors had 155,008 extra workdays added to their construction schedules and billed the state more than $352 million in cost overruns on hundreds of road and bridge projects. The New England Center for Investigative Reporting cited data from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation. MassDOT officials said changes to work orders, scheduling and sites and other issues likely contributed to increased costs and delays. An agency study said extra work orders and design changes or omissions cause 86 percent of internal delays.

Moving Upward With Changing Needs DISPLAY ADS/ CLASSIFIEDS BARLETTA from page 5

Interchange in Worcester, Mass., and completion of a pollution abatement and flood control facility for the Boston Redevelopment Authority.

From Horizontal to Vertical Through the 1980s and 1990s, the company moved almost exclusively into the field of vertical construction. “You have to be able to adapt to changing conditions and markets. For quite a number of years, cities and towns were investing in treatment plants, schools and other public buildings. We couldn’t just sit and wait for our traditional work to come back. We had to go where the market was,” said Barletta. “At that time, we had some inlaws and non-family administrators highly placed in the company and many of them were well-versed in the building trades.” Besides working on the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority’s massive Deer Island Treatment Plant facility, Barletta also completed many waste and water treatment plants and institutional buildings for local municipalities, and it was dur-

ing this time that the engineering division was added.

Fourth Generation Ascends With the passing of Vincent Barletta Sr., in 1998, his sons took over leadership roles in the firm. “Right from the start, we were determined to preserve the working atmosphere of a small, privately-owned firm that we’ve enjoyed since the company was founded. It’s definitely a balancing act between being a family company and running a business professionally, but we make it work,” stated Barletta. “On any given day, we have hundreds of employees and pieces of equipment working on dozens of job sites. I often wonder what my greatgrandfather would think if he could see what his little business has become. “It was tough in the beginning. It definitely helped to have people around you that you knew you could count on. Dad used to be able to micro-manage the company, but it’s grown way too much for that now,” said Barletta. We knew we’d have to rely more on organizational, business and management tools and make major investments in

items of high-technology and networked computer systems. “There were personnel changes, and along with the responsibilities we handed our people, we gave them authority to make decisions about the running of their operations. Some of our projects are huge. They’re run almost like small separate companies, and although the site offices are linked to headquarters by computer, the project staff needs the flexibility to be able to handle the day-to-day decision-making. We set policy and provide them the tools and support they need. You have to have trust in your people to do that, and they have to know that you’ll have their backs,” he said. Coming Full Circle Barletta’s heavy division was founded that same year, returning the company to its roots in heavy and highway construction. Working on the new Central Artery/Tunnel (The Big Dig) project brought the Barletta name fullcircle; re-building the infrastructure of Eastern Massachusetts that it had originally built over half a century before. see BARLETTA page 10
