About

P.J. Callaghan is a multi-generational, family-run general contracting firm focused solely on commercial construction. Our success has been built on specializing in pre-engineered metal buildings for a core group of quality clients who we now think of as longstanding partners. Along with pre-engineered metal buildings, we also offer services in:

  • General Contracting
  • Design-Build
  • Architecture
  • Construction Management
  • Facility Maintenance

Founded in 1948, the company’s original niche was building residential homes in St. Petersburg, FL. When we became an authorized dealer for metal building manufacturer Star Building Systems in 1967 our emphasis changed to commercial projects.

We pride ourselves on being a relationship-based company. It’s through effective communication with our clients, subcontractors, and vendors that we ensure that every project is successful. Working this way leads to a high retention rate among our customers; some of whom have been with us for decades.

For example, Star Building Systems has been an invaluable relationship for almost 50 years. We work closely with them to provide the best solutions for clients who need metal buildings. As an authorized builder of Star, we’re able to perform all aspects of the work pertaining to pre-engineered metal buildings, including design, new construction, re-roof, repair, additions and insulation.

While our company was built on constructing metal buildings, we’ve added numerous other services over the years. We provide facility maintenance for such clients as Penske, North American Terminals and Tampa Armature. We perform construction management for most any type of project, and we design projects from office build-outs to 56-acre truck terminals, all in-house – an advantage that saves our clients time and money.

We sometimes say, “We’re not good because we’re old, we’re old because we’re good.”
