A foundation for growth.
We go way back. Anthony Boyle and George Moore started Boyle & Moore as a general construction firm in 1977, believing that clients deserve service first and foremost. With the rise of design-build and construction management in the 1980s, we added services and grew quickly. Tony became the sole owner in 1985 and Boyle Associates was born. With every success, he would say, “Better Built By Boyle.” Tony’s son, Sean, took over the family business in 1996 as president. Today, Sean’s son Dylan plays a vital role today in the company’s leadership and its future. We designed our logo in 2001 and became Boyle Construction. Tony’s enduring belief that “construction is a relationship business” drives everything we do.
Building a better logo.
Our logo was inspired by the ancient Boyle family crest — a shield with an oak tree. It symbolizes our commitment to building better. Boyle gold represents generosity; green signifies hope, joy and loyalty; black stands for consistency; orange means worthwhile ambition. The oak tree reflects endurance and strength. The family crest and shield logo represent our high standards and aspirations.
Our mantra Built Better means what it says — quality construction services for 45 years and counting.
