The AHC Construction Timeline

Our foundation was built back in 1973, when the company was founded by Keith H. Libolt and Phillip Jannotti. Back then the focus was primarily on structural masonry, construction, and renovation work. In five short years, business focus expanded to home building, condominium projects, light commercial space, and light industrial flex and office space. Because of our commitment to quality and value, business boomed. When the real estate recession hit in 1989, we decided to re-evaluate our focus and began working on smaller-sized urban affordable housing projects. Our reputation preceded us, allowing us to not only quickly add these new types of project to the company portfolio, but also build strong, lasting relationships with HUD, FHLB, NYS HCR, AHC Funds, NYS HFA, OCCD, CDBG Funds, and RECAP. Over the last few years, over 70% of our annual volume is in development and construction of workforce and senior housing.
