A&E Construction, 278 North Main Street, Suite A, Pennington 08534; 609-737-4425; fax, 866-461-6216. Greg Fontaine, owner. Home page:

Not long after Greg and Karen Fontaine named their two daughters, the children returned the favor. Karen Fontaine opened an online children’s boutique,, in 1997 and named it after her first daughter’s nickname.

Six years ago, Greg Fontaine, a 15-year vet of the construction trade, opened his own business on Crusher Road in Pennington and incorporated their second daughter’s name, Emily, into his design-and-build enterprise.

Last month A&E Construction moved to Main Street in Pennington and debuted its new design showroom. The showroom highlights the company’s embracing of new 3-D design technology, which allows customers to see A&E’s designs in a more lifelike way, says Karen, who helps her husband around the business. She is still busy with her own online business, but often pitches in, she says.
