He graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science degree and later received his Licence as a Professional Engineer. He is Gold Seal Certified as a Project Manager.

"I founded Percon Construction on strong values of honesty, integrity and a commitment to doing what is right," values instilled in him by his parents and that extend across all Perricone's relationships with clients, employees, and others in the sector. 818493_Professional.indd 1 Fall/Winter 2016 35 17/06/16 9:21 pm http://www.kineticsnoise.com http://www.kineticsnoise.com http://www.peo.on.ca http://www.naylornetwork.com/oga-nxt http://www.peo.on.ca
