The Premiere Contracting Team

Paul Henriques


Mr. Henriques has 35 Years of experience in all phases of the construction industry. Paul started working in construction when he was 15 years old and has been in construction since.  “I started as a laborer”, Paul said, “I knew that I wanted to go to school for architecture or engineering so I thought working in construction would give me the hands on knowledge for me to better understand what I was learning.”  “I did a little of everything, masonry, roofing, siding, framing, concrete, drywall, painting, trim work, and the list goes on.”  “I really feel like working in the field all those years were the stepping stones for everything I know today.”  “I will strap on a tool belt today if that’s what I need to do to get the job done!”
