The New Masonry Division’s first assignment was building Graciano’s new corporate headquarters. Since that time, the division has gone on to carry out many new masonry projects, including schools, retail stores, commercial offices and industrial buildings. The division’s specialists also work hand-in-hand with Graciano’s restoration teams whenever a job calls for both restoration and new construction. Recently, the division completed work on several projects, including construction of new structures at New York City’s Bowery Bay Wards Island water treatment Facility.
Graciano offers an extensive array of new masonry services to accommodate numerous new construction needs. We are skilled at site preparation and foundation work, new construction, brick, block and stone installation, and mortar-set and dry stacked new masonry assignments. In addition, we also install rebar, imbeds and lintels, as well as expansion joints, and precast architectural elements.
Graciano constructed a new Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD) facility at Alstom Power’s Homer City plant. This plant employs an FGD method called limestone scrubbing, in which powdered limestone (calcium carbonate) is injected into exhaust gases and sulfur dioxide is absorbed and neutralized. This process takes place in a large masonry chamber within the FGD building, which also houses pipes and pumping equipment. (view project)
