About Us

Cardi Corporation is among the leading heavy, highway, site and utility contractors in New England, and is Rhode Island's leading public works and site-work contractor. Along with our affiliated companies, including Cardi Materials, Advantage Equipment Rentals, Fall River Ready-Mixed Concrete, Hopkins Hill Sand & Stone and AM Electric, Cardi has been providing superior construction products and services in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut for over 100 years.

Cardi’s projects range from complex work such as the construction of new bridges, ramps and roads on our nation’s interstate highway system to conventional, commercial site-work, utility work and paving. That work includes both public and private projects of varying size, complexity and description, roads, highways, bridges and airport runways, and the horizontal components of virtually every other type of construction project, including commercial, retail, residential, casino, educational and government facilities. Cardi and it’s affiliates, in turn, supply concrete, asphalt, sand and stone to projects throughout southern New England, and perform all phases of utility work, including water and sewer, gas transmission and electrical distribution work.

Cardi has been listed in the ENR 400 for over 20 years and performs well over $100 million of work each year. We have constructed and repaired countless miles of roads and highways throughout New England, including significant portions of Interstates 91, 93, 95, 195, 295 and 495, along with almost every major state highway in Rhode Island, and numerous other major public works throughout Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Cardi was the leading contractor for the relocation of the Moshassuck and Woonasquatucket Rivers in downtown Providence, a project which reshaped the heart of the city. Cardi also constructed the I-Way Bridge on I-195, a full 14 miles away from its permanent location, and then floated the bridge into place in Providence, and constructed the new Sakonnet River Bridge in Tiverton and Portsmouth.

Our mission is to strategically execute each task on every construction project with an unwavering commitment to the safety of the hundreds of men and women who proudly wear Cardi hard hats, the countless public entities and private companies that we have the privilege of working for and for the hundreds of thousands of people who make use of the projects we proudly build. Along with our affiliates and predecessors, Cardi Corporation has worked to fulfill this mission for over a hundred years, and looks forward to continuing to do so in the years to come.
