About Us


Zumpano Design and Construction manages and builds four to ten projects per year, based out of our office in Akron, Ohio. The projects have ranged from $200,000 to $10 million, and from 1,000 to 45,000 square feet.


The company is known within the construction industry for quality, innovative design, and the capability to construct complex residential and commercial projects. On six separate occasions, the company has earned the distinction of having been voted Builder of the Year by local peers (in 2001, 2007, 2009, 2014, 2021 and 2022).


No two projects are alike. The company's mission is to create relational environments -- places that increase your awareness and your appreciation of their surroundings and enhance your enjoyment and utility of those special places, at home or at work.


The company's low overhead and purchasing power combine to produce a high value. Our projects tend to the middle range of construction costs, not the highest, and not the lowest. We tightly manage and value-engineer every project. The result is a superb value for a company with decades of experience.
