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.

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)
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.
