The O’Connell Companies was established in 1979, but its history dates back to 1879, when Daniel O’Connell, a former superintendent of streets in Holyoke, Massachusetts, founded his construction company, Daniel O’Connell’s Sons (DOC). It was his belief that hard work, integrity, and quality would set his company apart from competitors.

A century later, O’Connell Companies expanded and diversified into the construction management, property development, and energy and environmental services industries.
