Company History

Building on a Foundation of Experience

Pia Construction is a company that was formed in 2013 by Matthew Pia in Pittsburgh, PA. Initially, the company focused on tenant improvements and relocations, which involved renovating and modifying existing commercial spaces to meet the needs of new tenants or businesses.

As Pia Construction gained experience and expertise in the construction industry, the company expanded its services to include ground-up construction projects. One notable project that marked the transition to ground-up construction for Pia Construction was the construction of a local church. This project involved the complete construction of a new church building, from the foundation to the finishing touches. This experience allowed Matt and his team to demonstrate their capabilities in managing and executing larger-scale construction projects.

Since then, Pia Construction has transitioned to Pia Development and Construction, offering a wide range of specialized services, including construction management, project management, property development and more. Under Matt’s leadership, the Pia team delivers quality projects on time and on budget, while accommodating all project specifications and maintaining lasting professional relationships with project subcontractors and other stakeholders.
