For every project, we bring our A-Game to design and deliver the optimum sporting experience for your community to keep the game going as long it can.
I & Y Construction, LLC is a privately owned, open-shop, general and electrical construction company based in New Enterprise, PA. Since our beginning in June 2004, our primary business has been high mast sports lighting installations, stadium bleacher erection and installations, foundation work including drilling (caissons/piers) and spread footers, and other various types of masonry and concrete work. Over the years, we’ve also expanded into installing scoreboards and sound systems. The demand for our services has also grown, and due to the quality and specialized nature of our work, we are asked, willing, and able to travel significant distances to perform our services.
Our customer base includes private non-profit organizations, public school districts, colleges & universities, public municipalities, and other contractors. During the past several years, I & Y Construction, LLC has installed Musco and other sports lighting systems for numerous stadiums and fields throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington D.C., West Virginia, Virginia, Delaware, and New York. We have worked on and completed more than three hundred different sports lighting projects either as a subcontractor or GC.

The people behind our success include owners Matthew Snyder and Ronald “Tink” Snider, and Foreman, Gregory Peace. Matt and Tink’s wives, Christine and Kristen, are the people REALLY behind our success, because, among many other things, they consistently keep the day to day operations running smoothly.
Matt heads up sales, estimating and purchasing. He graduated from Penn State University in 1992 and has built up more than 16 years experience in the sports lighting industry. Prior to owning and running I & Y Construction, Matt worked as a Field Sales Representative for Musco Sports Lighting and has extensive knowledge of sports lighting installation and construction.
Tink uses his 25 years of General Construction experience to confidently lead our team during construction. He also lends his experience to help in the office with cost estimating and bidding. But primarily he’s an on-site construction manager and coordinates all phases of installation to make sure each project is completed efficiently and to our industry’s high standards.
