  • About Us
  • Bob Cafarelli, Chief Executive Officer

CB Construction CEO Bob Cafarelli is a proven leader in the construction industry. His deep understanding of the business of construction has generated successful results for both project owners and for construction companies, including:

  • Managing the planning and execution for a $52 million project involving condemned building demolition, major thoroughfare rerouting and extraordinary measures to allow businesses to remain open – all while delivering the project ahead of schedule. 
  • Creating a design-build partnership with an architecture firm, resulting in designing and constructing a $7 million, 67,000 sqft elementary school.
  • Planning a company-wide redirection from building hospitality projects to building university student housing, gaining more than $35 million in contracts. 
  • Turning around a building contractor with negative equity by closely managing cash flow, revamping personnel and negotiating subcontractor payment terms to swing equity from an $800,000 deficit to a positive $2 million. 
  • Developing a new business revenue line for municipal pools and wastewater facility construction to offset cyclical construction lulls in existing service lines.
  • Increasing company sales by 60% to $40 million when he served as interim CEO for another construction firm.

Bob’s analytical yet thoughtful approach focuses on turning challenges into opportunities through detailed planning and successful execution.
