Gilbane Building Company is a global construction firm that provides integrated construction and facilities-related services. From integrated consulting capabilities to pre-construction planning and comprehensive construction management, close-out and facility management services, Gilbane Building Company provides a full slate of services for clients across various markets.

Gilbane Building Company began more than 140 years ago as a small carpentry shop in Providence, Rhode Island. Founded by two brothers, William and Thomas Gilbane, their business quickly grew through their entrepreneurship and innovation into a business with a reputation for quality. Gilbane Building Company remains committed to its family and safety culture found in its builder roots today, as it enters its sixth generation of family ownership. From allying with OSHA to developing progressive safety programs, safety is at the forefront of the Gilbane culture. Gilbane currently operates in 60+ offices in the United States and internationally and has been a partner in historic projects such as the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and the Lake Placid Winter Olympics Facilities.

From material acquisition to transportation, construction, material use and disuse, Gilbane Building Company recognizes the impact that buildings have on the environment. Gilbane’s commitment to incorporating sustainability into the evolution of construction includes an internal Sustainability Council that provides direction on LEED certification and sustainable construction as well as Gilbane Green Teams, which assist in the dispersal of sustainable technologies, policies, developments in LEED, Green Globes, and other rating systems.
