    Company Founding

    In 1984, Dennis Patrylo and Jack Tiernan left a national industrial construction firm to start their own construction company in Atlanta. They grew the company and developed a customer base. In 1994, John Tiernan and Larry Aronson left an international construction company to join the leadership of this team and develop Tiernan & Patrylo into a strong, multi-disciplinary design-build firm. Under their guidance, the company grew its geographic footprint, further extended its client base and skill offerings, and attracted top engineering and construction talent to its ranks.
