AUGUST CONSTRUCTION SOLUTIONS
Precision. Passion. Purpose.
ACS is an award-winning, general contracting firm headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina. Founded in 2013 by Michael Iovino, our portfolio spans the categories of retail, adaptive reuse, developer improvements, office space and hospitality.
We have been named as one of Raleigh’s Fast 50 four out of our last five years of eligibility, an honor bestowed to the fastest growing private companies in North Carolina’s Triangle region. ACS has also been recognized with numerous industry awards for our work.
Every project, every building, tells a story through the history of the structure itself, the hidden details that are given new life, and the materials and design that write the next chapter in its narrative. In turn, at ACS our projects are our story. We let the range in our portfolio, award-winning craftsmanship and the response to our projects speak to who we are, and together they demonstrate the precision, passion and purpose we bring to the job every day.
The word ‘solutions’ is in our name for a reason—we are active partners with a solid work ethic to get the job done. Let’s discuss the possibility of working together.
August Construction Solutions is a tribute to the efforts of generations of Michael’s family who have served as dedicated tradesmen, contractors and architects. We strive to carry on the enthusiasm and gratitude for our business as a tribute to all of those who came before.
August Paesano, Michael’s maternal great-grandfather immigrated from Naples, Italy to Hoboken, NJ in 1886. Upon arriving in America, he saw endless possibilities for someone willing to work. He took this to heart and until his passing in 1961, August was a successful concrete and masonry contractor. He is the company’s eponym – and it’s an honor to use his name daily.
Naming a contractor company using middle names is another subtle hat tip. This time to two gentlemen in Southern California who had a profound early influence on Michael’s professional life.
