About Our Principals


Before Terry started his over 50-year career in construction, he graduated from Baldwin Wallace college, and was drafted by the NBA's Atlanta Hawks. After being released from the Atlanta Hawks, he played two years of basketball for the industrial league's Goodyear Tire and Rubber company traveling internationally. He can also be found in Baldwin, Wallace's Basketballs Hall of Fame.

A move to Buffalo, New York, started his construction career for the next 15 years. Terry worked as an independent contractor performing such trades as a concrete Contractor, to a demo and Paving contractor, but he stopped when he found his real passion as a general contractor.

Seeking a larger challenge, he moved to metropolitan New York to work for a commercial general contracting company. In 1995, he became president of that company, and under his leadership developed a business from one doing annual sales of $7 million to a growth of over $100 million in construction annually. During his tenure as president, he opened satellite offices in New York City, Newark, New Jersey, and Boston, Massachusetts, seizing new business opportunities.

Showing diversification and complexity some of the interesting team accomplishments was successfully completed projects such as a minor-league baseball stadium in Rockland County, United Airlines, $100 million dollar in-line baggage system at Newark airport, numerous retail projects at JFK airport, LaGuardia airport, and Boston airport. Completed the first major retail addition to Woodberry Commons and parking garage in Orange County, New York.

A few other projects that Terry found most interesting in his career under his leadership was completing a 20,000 sf ER medical facility, the first Gentlemen's Club in a casino in Atlantic City, and even a Jewish Mikva in Manhattan. Another market segment that contributed to growth was healthcare and pharmaceuticals, which can at times be quite complex.

Capitalizing on his belief in the value of sharing "domain knowledge" Terry scheduled regular training sessions to share knowledge learned in the business. This passion for knowledge sharing, enabled him to take the in-house training sessions, one step further by authoring two textbooks, entitled "Ultimate Construction Checklist Book #1 and Book #2. The first is designed to help project managers and superintendents upgrade their academic skills in construction. The second book is a reference for a construction company owner to help them standardize and streamline their operations to ensure higher profitability and quality.

In 2013, he resigned as president to become partners with Jamie Fox, and hence AllertonFox Construction was formed.


Jamie was born and raised in western New Jersey where he grew up on construction sites. His grandfather and uncles taught him the basics from an early age, learning the smallest of detail to the biggest. Construction just made sense to Jamie and he fell in love with the process early on. He had a vision that one day he would open his open construction company.

In 2000, he achieved his first step in that vision by attaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from Lafayette College. This education coupled with his first hand experience landed him a position at Turner Construction stationed in Philadelphia and then New York City. Here he gained invaluable on site experience within complex markets.

After several years at Turner, he was looking to expand his knowledge base and decided to move to the general contracting firm Holt Construction which had offices in Pearl River, Manhattan, Newark and Boston. At Holt Construction, he was able to gain a bigger picture of the industry from preconstruction to closeout, procurement and contract negotiations. He grew from a Project Superintendent to their Director of Operations where he managed all New York City projects.

In 2014, Jamie was able to realize his dream of owning his own construction company partnering with Terry to establish AllertonFox Construction. He now brings 20 years industry experience across multiple disciplines. When Jamie isn’t doing construction for AllertonFox, he likes spending time with his two boys and wife in Ridgewood, NJ.
