Our History

High Tech Construction of RI Inc. was founded in Central Falls, RI more than 25 years ago by independent contractor Joe Dalomba.

Joe’s early success was based on his work ethic, competitive pricing, and the quality of complete projects. His reputation as a knowledgeable subcontractor in the building trades, plumbing, and heating fields quickly propelled him forward to create our company in 1987.

Throughout the 1990s, our company grew to become one of Rhode Island's premier project management and prime construction firms.

In 1998, Joe received the prestigious U.S. Small Business Administration's Rhode Island Minority Small Business Person of the Year Award "because of his determination and business skills."

As the world entered the 21st Century, High Tech Construction of RI Inc. grew by leaps and bounds in the sheer number of projects, the size of the projects, the number of employees, equipment inventory, and the ever-increasing financial backing from the one of the world's largest financial institutions.

Today, we are bonded for projects up to $5 million and have completed nearly 100,000 square feet of renovation or new construction in commercial and industrial projects in the last year alone.

No matter the project, whether it is municipal affordable housing, public safety buildings, restaurants, million dollar custom-built residences, churches, and everything in between, we are hitting our stride and making a mark in RI as a leading prime general contracting and project management consulting firm.

Experienced Management Team

High Tech Construction of RI Inc. has built a sterling reputation throughout our years in business. Much of this reputation has been built on the exceptional level of service offered by our team and the guidance of our company leaders.

Our owner and president, Joe Dalomba, is a self-made man. He came from humbling beginnings and, as a teenager, worked his way around the world as a crew hand for an international merchant marine company.

High Tech Construction of RI Inc.

At the age of 20, Joe arrived in RI and began building our company from the sweat of his brow and with his fierce determination to succeed.

A graduate of New England Institute of Technology's Bachelor of Science construction management program and a U.S. Small Business Administration Business Person of the Year (1998) honoree, he set a goal early on in his business career, which remains valid to this day.

His mission, which remains uppermost in his mind today, is to provide each client with the highest standard of excellence on every project he was awarded.

He kept his promise to his customers and to himself. Today, this highly respected Southern New England Prime General Contractor and strategic construction project consultant is bonded for $5 million.

Joe goes well beyond to exceed his client's expectation. When called upon to share his wealth of knowledge, from design-build project to infrastructure concerns, to planning and zoning issues, Joe gladly assists all those who request his assistance.

As a custom design builder for home residences, general contractor for commercial and industrial projects, and a prominent land developer, Joe prides himself on the performance of his team of skilled tradesmen and the positive relationships he's built over the past 20 years as Vice President of his Central Falls, RI-based company.


“Joe and his crew from High Tech Construction were a pleasure to do business with from start to finish. High Tech demonstrated the professional competency and capability to deliver the kind of quality construction we expected for this $3.8 million project! Joe's commitment to excellence was exceptional. He was always there when we needed him or had questions. We highly recommend Joe Dalomba and High Tech Construction.”

“Working with Joe Dalomba and his crew from High Tech Construction has been a pleasure all-around.

His over 20 years of general contracting experience means total reliability of the process and top-notch quality of the end product. I look forward to continuing our work together on future development projects.”

“For the past twenty years I have not only been Joe Dalomba’s/High Tech Construction’s insurance agent, but I have also been a customer. This experience allowed me an up close and personal perspective of Joe Dalomba’s construction operations. I witnessed the favorable work ethic of Joe’s employees, and the quality of their workmanship. My project was constructed within the time frame promised, and without any unforeseen cost that might have disrupted my construction budget. We insure several building contractors, so High Tech Construction was not my only option when contemplating who to award my construction project. However, my experience in handling Joe Dalomba’s business insurance and contract bonding gave me exposure to many of High Tech’s customers, all of whom appeared very happy with their business relationship with High Tech Construction. With that knowledge in hand, in making my decision, I believed High Tech Construction would be a wise choice. If I were to pursue another construction project, I would not hesitate to employee High Tech Construction again, and I would be pleased to recommend them to you.”

- Thomas J. Dacey, President, T.J. Dacey, Ltd
