Featured Projects

New Castle Transit Authority

The New Castle Area Transit Authority office and maintenance building was built in 2001 as an addition to their facilities in Western Pennsylvania. Constructed with 20 kinds of block, including split-faced, glazed and fluted concrete material, as well as glass block, the building features a standing-seam metal mansard roof system, which required strong structural support members. As the new masonry contractor on this project, Graciano coordinated work with all the other subcontractors, to ensure the assignment followed the critical path of the project. Specifically, Graciano’s work included laying out walls, placing steel rebar, lintels, and imbeds in walls and laying block. (view project)

MetLife Building

The landmark MetLife Tower is constructed of limestone and Tuckahoe marble and has a gold-leafed dome. Built in 1909, the building’s tower boasts a 24-foot-diameter clock face on each of its four sides. Mosaic tiles form the background of the clocks, and each numeral is actually a backlit window. The project included replacement of lintels, masonry cleaning, pointing, and stone replacement, patching, and stabilization. The assignment also entailed cleaning and resetting mosaic tiles on the clock faces. The project was recognized by New York Construction News with its 2002 Rehabilitation Project of the Year award, and was the highlight of the New York Times article, A Tower's Big-Time Restoration.

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.
