Over 25 Years in the Industry
Lead. Make a Difference. Build a Better Future.
Beginning as the self-performing provider for Quandel Construction Group, LLC, Performance Construction has evolved over the years as a general contracting and subcontracting company specializing in heavy civil, concrete, dams, water/wastewater treatment plants, bridges, and site work.
Our longevity is built on safety, integrity, exceptional services, commitment to excellence, and a focus on team. We strive to be a resource to our clients and industry leaders in performance and safety for the built environment. We do not just build buildings. We build relationships, manage risk, and deliver some of the area’s most impactful construction projects. As your trusted advocate, we accomplish this through teamwork, communication, and relationships based on respect and trust. At Performance Construction, our purpose is to lead, make a difference, and build a better future.
Our operations are independent of our parent company, Quandel Enterprises, LLC. We have a trade agreement with various carpenter, laborer, operator, and millwright unions. At any given time, we have 50 to 125 tradesmen performing work for our clients. We also employ a general superintendent of field operations who oversees our staff of superintendents and foremen leading the projects.

Performance Construction’s goal is the same today as it was when we founded the company in 1995, to be the premier construction services provider, who offers high performing teams, and who delivers operational excellence through our time-tested processes.
Our core purpose and values are the foundation for our success and the compass that guides us.

Construction Leadership Since 1995
Strong leadership serves as a building block for all our operations. At Performance Construction, our staff is our greatest asset. We know that our success and, ultimately, the success of your project, relies on our employees. We understand that you place your trust in us to build your project because of our staff’s qualifications, experience, and knowledge in delivering construction solutions. Each of our project managers are required to have 10-hour OSHA training. Additionally, our superintendents must have 30-hour OSHA training every five years.
Safety: First. Last. Always!
At Performance Construction, our standards are guided by our core values that define our commitment to providing a safe work environment supported by policies that meet or exceed federal, state, and local laws. We are constantly thinking about ways to work safely. We define success in safety when every employee on every project site can return home to their families safely.
Our construction team personnel are certified in First Aid, CPR, AED, and OSHA 10-hour at a minimum. Each year, our team members complete additional safety training to enhance their knowledge of project-specific challenges. We also have a Text Observation Process (TOP) program used for superintendents and project managers to report Safety Observations easily and Near Misses and corrective actions in real-time from an app on their phones. Safety Talks are presented every week and shared with subcontractors. We also have a subcontractor prequalification process to review subcontractors’ safety process and financials. We believe in the importance of regular safety inspections and weekly jobsite inspections. Year after year, we maintain our EMR rating well below the industry average of 1.00.
Our most important asset is our people. We consider every individual in our offices and on a job site our company’s responsibility. Employee safety not only affects what happens on the job; it also affects the personal lives of our workers and the people they love.
We Believe In Steadfast Integrity
Our team is held to an ethical standard. We believe in healthy, long-term relationships based on clear communication and transparency – we do not just “talk the talk.” We tailor our services to you. When you are looking for a construction partner, it can often be confusing as to what services are the best fit for your project. We have a reputation for working with you to find construction solutions that align with your goals and ultimately provide the greatest value.
For project owners, there is a lot at stake – money, time, reputations, and the future of your business. We work as your advocate, so you can focus on your business, knowing that we are guiding the design and construction process. Open communication, defining expectations, and a transparent process help you see what is going on each step of the way.
We have been self-performing heavy civil, concrete, site work, and construction services as both a general contractor and subcontractor since 1995 for bridges, dams, building foundations, and water/wastewater treatment plants.

Clients of All Spectrums
The Markets We Serve
From bridges and dams to water/wastewater treatment plants, we have the resources to construct your most demanding projects.
Building Foundations / Structural Concrete
Concrete is the foundation of many industrial structures. It takes an experienced, capable concrete contractor with a proven track record of success to complete the job on time and within budget. We have been meeting the needs of our clients and tailoring our concrete services accordingly since 1995.
Site excavation has evolved into a complex task that has the potential to disrupt a project’s momentum. Our team has experience with a variety of site excavation services such as
- site clearing,
- site erosion and post erosion controls,
- site grading,
- site utilities, and
- excavation and back fill for foundations.
Water / Wastewater Treatment Plants
We help clients deliver water to their communities by employing unique techniques for renovations, upgrades to existing facilities, and construction of new water and wastewater treatment plants. Because we self-perform much of the concrete, piping, and mechanical work, we can better control quality, cost, and schedule, passing those benefits on to our clients. Our team of professionals, provide knowledge of the facility and technology valuable to properly planned and executed projects.
Our understanding of plant processes and procedures, installed equipment, relationships with plant personnel, knowledge of maintenance schedules, existing SCADA and electrical systems, and an overall understanding of the inner workings of our customer’s program allows our team to anticipate what owner’s expect.
I would like to compliment Quandel on a job well done. Hurricane Lee flooded the entire site rendering the facility off-line and totally inoperable. The Danville WWTP was completely rebuilt electrically and mechanically within two weeks and was again compliant by all DEP and EPA standards. This was an astounding feat and could not have been accomplished without the constant presence, passion and commitment of the Quandel team. Quandel met and exceeded all of the owner’s expectations. Actions speak louder than words, and the lasting impression was one of commitment and dedication to a job well done. The entire management from Quandel was easy to work with and made a difficult situation not just bearable but enjoyable. It is with great confidence that I put forward this recommendation for the Quandel Team.
