Our History

Celebrating almost 50 years of Paving and Construction, our family owned business has been in operation since 1974. Our founder, Liberal Silva, originally from the Azores, a small Portuguese island off the coast of Portugal, and started the business as Frisco’s Asphalt. Frisco’s Asphalt started by constructing small residential driveways and expanded to utility construction in the public sector. Eventually, Liberal’s two sons- Dan and Michael, joined him in the business. Liberal instilled in his two sons and employees a blue collar work ethic and tenacious drive to get any project completed on time and on budget, while keeping long lasting relationships with his clients. Those company values and work ethic still holds true today.

In 1996, current President, Dan Silva, took over the family owned business and renamed the company Century Paving & Construction Corporation. Since taking over in 1996, Dan and his wife Marina have expanded the company tremendously, now constructing and redeveloping public roadways and commercial sites in Massachusetts and throughout Rhode Island. Century Paving & Construction also continues to be one of the preferred local paving contractors for any residential driveway or commercial parking lot, no matter the size or complexity.

Today, a third generation of Silva’s is proudly involved in the operations of the company. Dan’s son, Kyle, continues to evolve the family owned business to new heights. Century Paving & Construction is one of the oldest and most respected companies in Bristol County, and strives to be your one stop shop for your next construction project!
