Our History

Adams-Bickel Associates, LLC
Adams-Bickel Associates, LLC has a long history, which can be traced back to the 1940s. Originally incorporated as Adams-Bickel Associates, Inc., the company was re-organized in 2013, as it prepared to enter a new stage of expansion. Since then, Adams-Bickel has been on a course of rapid growth, positioning itself as a General Contracting and Construction Management leader in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.

Our company’s roots trace back to 1947 when Walter J. Adams, renowned for his expertise in both residential and commercial construction, laid its foundation. H. James Bickel then joined the ranks, leading to the establishment of Adams-Bickel Associates, Inc. in 1980. Following Mr. Bickel’s retirement in 2013, Joseph P. Bello, Jr. and Gustavo I. Perea took the reins, steering the company’s focus toward the commercial, industrial, and institutional markets. Since then, the company has been on a course of growth, positioning it as a leader in Construction Management and General Contracting.

Early 2021 ushered in a new chapter for AdamsBickel as Mr. Perea retired after a successful tenure at the company’s helm. With a commitment to sustained growth and uncompromising craftsmanship, Mr. Bello welcomed a new partner, Bryan Hurtado, into the organization.

A proud member of the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC), AdamsBickel has earned acclaim for its excellence across diverse sectors, including industrial, commercial, institutional, educational, religious, health care, and multifamily residential projects of varying scales.

At AdamsBickel, construction transcends mere occupation; it embodies a deep-seated passion. With a legacy spanning over five decades, we recognize that our projects are often part of the “fabric” that binds communities and their surrounding environments. We take pride in our work and remain dedicated to uphold our company values while providing high-quality workmanship.

AdamsBickel successfully managed challenging logistics and a complex procurement process to execute our design for a serene pavilion that pushed the boundaries of glazing technology. The pavilion’s well-executed details are evidence of ABA’s partnership throughout the construction process and their commitment to the project’s highly aspirational goals.
