Best Specialty Contractor Project

The Commons at Villanova University

Project Description

Complete with six residential buildings that house more than 1,100 students, light retail space and a restaurant, the Villanova Commons is the largest masonry job in the history of the region, according to the Philadelphia Masons Union. Putting concerns to rest that the job was too big for one mason, D.M. Sabia & Co., Inc. met the monumental task and delivered “old-school” quality with more than 150 masons, laborers and operating engineers on site at peak times. The overall volume and quantity of stonework throughout the Commons is a sight to behold.
