About Alexander Wolf and Son

Alexander Wolf and Son is a fourth-generation family business founded in 1905. The company's founder, Alexander Wolf, was a native New Yorker who grew up on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and got his start in the construction field as a mason. Responding to the needs of a growing city in the post-war boom, Alexander and his son Charles broadened the firm's services to general contracting and construction management and in the process earned a reputation for integrity and dependability.

In the 1970s, the firm's leadership expanded to include Alexander's grandsons, Daniel Bernstein and Richard Wolf. In their more than 40 years with AW&S, they and their dedicated staff maintained the firm's standard of excellence through an aggressive, committed and creative program focused on personal attention to their clients' needs. In 2006, Peter Bernstein joined AW&S as a principal and together with his father Daniel has been at the helm of the company since 2013.

AW&S works with architects, engineers, and design professionals from pre-construction through project completion with every project placed under direct supervision of Daniel or Peter. The result has been an impressive record of creative problem solving, project success, and a high level of satisfaction and repeat business from the firm's institutional, corporate and not-for-profit clients.
