Wellington Constructors

Delivering General Contracting services

In order to provide general contracting services to Wellington's many clients, the Company founded a new subsidiary, Wellington Constructors, Inc. in late 2012.

Wellington has been building a multi-disciplinary business model in recent years represented in part by the successful and timely delivery of the Port Authority's North Shore Connector-Train Systems project. The $91.5 million transit contract required the installation of five miles of concrete plinth, 2.5 miles of pedestal track, emergency tunnel walkway, tunnel ventilation, traction power, aerial electrification, fire protection/life safety systems, transit signaling and communication networks, and integration of all systems.

As a unit of Wellington Power Corporation, which is ranked in the top 1% of specialty construction firms in the U.S., Wellington Constructors offers clients the resources and capabilities of a large, national company while providing the focus of a small firm. WCI's relationship with its parent allows for specialization while tapping the experience of one of the nation's leading electrical infrastructure companies.
