History & Philosophy

In 1946, after returning from service in the Pacific with the U.S. Navy SeaBee Construction Battalion, I founded Peter J. Vicari General Contractor, located in Harvey, Louisiana. I have accumulated more than Sixty (60) years of construction experience since then. I was a member of the Board of Standards and Appeals for Jefferson Parish, monitoring any construction variances. This has enabled me to understand problems that owners have on construction projects dealing with code enforcement.  In 1980,  I decided to turn the construction presidency over to my son,  Peter G. Vicari. I am presently Chairman of the Board for Pete Vicari Contractor, Inc.

After completing my education, I joined my father full time in the construction business. Working my way up from a laborer to a job superintendent and then a project manager. I have been able to learn all phases of the construction business. I was appointed to the Board of Standards and Appeals and served for three (3) years. I am now President of Pete Vicari General Contractor, LLC. and in keeping with the Vicari tradition I also strive to give our clients the best quality workmanship possible.
