The firm started out with smaller projects for a select group of private clients and as they grew, branched out into the public sector building a wide variety of structures including office buildings, schools, municipal buildings, salt domes, boardwalk replacement projects, and postal facilities just to name a few. In addition, Circle-A was involved in several historical renovation projects such as the Barnegat Lighthouse, the renovation of the Perth Amboy Ferry Slip, the building of a new vocational school (Career Technical Institute) inside the historical Hanger One at Lakehurst Naval Base as well as the historical renovation of the St. George Station Staten Island Post Office. Another aspect of the firm's experience is the building of a wide variety of structures for several branches of the military. For the US Navy, Circle-A completed several projects at Earle Weapons Naval Base such as the Housing Management Office, Fifty-Person UEPH, Gun Deck Club, and the Family Service Center. The Family Service Center was a design build project that was a 6,500 square foot housing placement office building. At Lakehurst Naval Base, Circle-A Construction built the Amid Shop Maintenance Facility. At Fort Dix, they built a 150,000 square foot PX retail facility for the Army and Air Force service personnel and in Fort Monmouth the NCO Dining Facility Club. Circle-A also did renovation work for the US Coast Guard Station in Point Pleasant at the Manasquan Inlet.
