August Construction Solutions, Inc. (ACS) is a general contracting firm specializing in national retail construction. The firm was founded in 2013 by Michael Iovino and is headquartered in Raleigh, NC. With a core of experienced retail construction professionals ACS is well positioned to partner with retailers to create a successful team.
August Paesano, my maternal great-grandfather, was born in Naples, Italy in 1886. He immigrated to the United States in 1906 and settled in New Jersey first living in Hoboken. He fully embraced his new country and its limitless possibilities for someone with the will to work. Until his passing in 1961 he was a successful concrete and masonry contractor.
August is the middle name of my youngest son, Tanner, and me. It is a great honor to be named after him and all that he represented. August Construction Solutions is my tribute to the efforts of generations of my family who have served and serve our industry as tradesmen, contractors and architects.
The concept of naming a contracting firm using middle names is my tip of the cap to two gentlemen in Southern California whose profound influence on my professional life I will be forever grateful.
