About Us/Our Team

Integrity does not exist in a vacuum – it is modeled at the leadership level with insistence on the highest standards and a customer-oriented focus. It is demonstrated every day by every employee on our team. Our experienced architects, engineers, project managers and superintendents guide our clients through each step of the project, becoming trusted partners in bringing a shared vision to completion.

Our team is lead by Anthony Gaglio Sr., who brings more than 30 years of experience and in-depth knowledge of all types of construction projects. His personal involvement and hands-on leadership style contribute to the successful completion of every project. In addition to building projects, Mr. Gaglio builds relationships. He has built a thriving company as a result.

Our History

Viking Construction was established on a foundation of a family business with roots stretching back nearly a century.

Anthony Gaglio brought an appreciation for quality and old-world craftsmanship when he started with the company at its inception in 1991. With a diverse staff, Viking built its reputation over the years as a well-rounded and stable firm capable of tackling any project.

Sound financial management, combined with implementation of the industry’s best practices has contributed to solid growth over the years. A varied range of award-winning projects have been added to the Viking portfolio, including historic renovations, wastewater treatment facilities, pharmaceutical plants, churches, schools, assisted living facilities, office buildings, industrial manufacturing plants and large-scale affordable housing projects throughout the states of Connecticut and New York.

Although the volume of the company has dramatically increased over the years  many of the original staff are still with us today, a testament to loyalty that is hard to find in the construction industry Viking stayed the course in its mission to self-perform trades under one roof, where other firms normally contract out these integral services. We believe this provides a level of personal involvement, quality control and hands-on management that contribute to the successful completion of every project. Consistent and comprehensive safety programs keep us abreast with the latest innovations and protect our most valuable asset – our people.

Viking is a leader in the construction field on many fronts, and a responsive community partner. A merit-based open shop, we are a member of the Connecticut Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors, helping to improve industry regulations and standards. Our philanthropic initiatives support programs for disadvantaged families and people who are at risk for homelessness, providing training and resources to help them become self-sufficient.

As we look to the future, we are optimistic that we will continue to be successful, and will guide the next generation of our family into the business.
