Amicon Management is a professional owner representation and construction project management firm committed to protecting clients’ interests. Their proven strategies mitigate risk, create accountability, and maximize value for every project.
CEO and Founder, Adam Mopsick, has over 25 years of experience in the construction and real estate industry, dating back to his teenage days as a laborer. After earning an undergraduate degree in Finance from the University of Florida, he gained valuable knowledge and experience building luxury custom homes for award-winning firm, Brookman-Fels. In 1996, at the age of 24, the lure of entrepreneurship led Adam to form his own construction company. This became the foundation for teaming up with UF alumnus Ross Adickman to form Amicon Construction.
Their vision was to create a boutique company focusing on a superior client experience and unique corporate culture based on integrity, work ethic and a team-oriented spirit. Amicon’s commitment was to attract and train staff who understand superior construction techniques and advanced project management technologies while focusing primarily on client satisfaction. Under Adam’s innovative leadership, Amicon has earned the confidence of a growing portfolio of prestigious local and international clients. Today, Amicon Construction is consistently recognized as the market leader for premier general contracting services and construction management in South Florida.
