Featured Projects

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 façade, 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.

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)
