Featured Projects

Graciano Corporate Headquarters

In 1997, Graciano’s New Construction Division undertook its first project by building the new headquarters building for Graciano Corporation. Situated on a steeply sloped site that provides stunning views of the rolling hills that surround suburban Pittsburgh, the building is designed in a freeform shape that accommodates the terrain and provides maximum floor space. The structure features column and beam construction coupled with poured concrete sub floors. The exterior of the building is skinned in brick and accented with ribbon window treatments outfitted with tinted glass and brushed aluminum trim. (view project)

Rockefeller Center (Phase I)

Built in 1929 during The Great Depression, Rockefeller Center is a complex of a dozen buildings, including the 60-story General Electric Building and Radio City Music Hall. An example of Art Deco architecture, the complex was constructed with Indiana limestone, an elegant and beautiful building material noted for its durability and fire resistance. The project included cleaning and restoration of over 2,500,000 square feet of building fašade, use of a filtered water saturation cleaning method, approved by the New York City Landmarks Commission, removal of old mortar, repointing, recaulking, and repair or replacement of damaged stones, using state-of-the-art restoration techniques.

Graciano Intern Program

Graciano Corporation is helping to acquaint engineering and architectural students with the challenges of the real world through innovative internship programs.

Participating students — drawn from many of the country’s leading colleges and universities — collect company and field data, work directly with management and teams, and conduct extensive research. Interns then develop and present to Graciano’s management recommendations for ongoing program enhancements. Interns work on flexible schedules and partner with Graciano employees who help the students develop and refine their skills.
