Ferreira is a family-first company.
Ferreira Construction’s inception began in the Northeast division, specifically in New Jersey.
The company’s roots were planted in 1988, starting as a trucking company. Through hard work, determination, and a stellar reputation, the company set its sights on expanding its portfolio of services to become Ferreira Construction in 1998 with a $300,000 bridge project. It was a fast and furious start, and over the next six months, Ferreira performed almost a million dollars in contracts and proved that they could deliver quality projects on time and within budget.
Throughout the years, the New Jersey Division has pivoted from solely being a bridge contractor and adapted to the industry needs with a primary focus on utility/power contracts, all while continuing to be very successful with bridge and highway civil projects. As the company continued to grow exponentially in NJ, the next step was to enter the NY market. In 2008, Ferreira hired key employees with experience in the NY market to grow the company. In 2018, the NY Division saw a considerable surge by being awarded multiple large utility and site work contracts for NYC airport expansions.
The Northeast division has recently expanded into Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware. Today, the Northeast division performs civil, utility, power, gas, and renewable energy construction and professional services. Ferreira Construction headquarters remain in Branchburg, NJ, and all our accounting and support staff are in our NJ office.

Sewaren 7 Combined Cycle
In order to support the electrical system reliability, PSEG made the decision to build a new 540-MW, dual-fuel combined cycle power plant at the existing Sewaren Generating Station site in Sewaren, New Jersey. This project would replace Sewaren Units 1,2,3, and 4 after almost 70 years of use.
