ACCEND Construction hires Tony Fontanetta as general superintendent

ACCEND Construction LLC has hired Tony Fontanetta as general superintendent. He will oversee projects to ensure they are completed within budget, on schedule and in accordance with client specifications while also ensuring that jobsite safety and quality control are maintained during projects. He comes on board not long after the general contractor opened its doors for business in Chicago.

“At ACCEND, we strive to make the lives of everyone we interact with better, and Tony makes that happen every day,” said Andy MacGregor, ACCEND’s president. “He is proactive, innovative and a true client partner. Tony is one of the most sought-after superintendents in the industry given his depth of experience and his ability to foresee and avoid potential issues on the jobsite well before they occur. Having worked with Tony for eleven years, I know that he will make a meaningful impact in mentoring staff and creating the best construction experience for our clients.”

Over the course of his 34-year career, Fontanetta has overseen 6.5 million square feet of construction including office interiors, hospitality and restaurant projects, new construction and heavy renovations. In his previous position, Fontanetta helped oversee and grow the field from nothing to $400 million. Prior to joining ACCEND, Fontanetta worked as a senior superintendent and team leader, where he led projects for notable clients such as JP Morgan Chase, Chapman and Cutler, and The Latin School.
