Family owned and operated since 1914, Ghilotti Construction Company has 98+ years of engineering experience and a family tradition of hard work and dependability. The story of Ghilotti Construction Company is the story of the American Dream. A stone mason by trade, our founding grandfather, James Ghilotti, left his native Italy to come seeking his fortune in California. Transporting stones all over the north bay by horse and cart, his back-breaking hard work and business philosophy paid off as his company grew from small paving jobs to building bridges and highways.
By 1939, four sons were working by their father’s side in a true family business. No job was too big or too small for the growing company, and that continues to hold true today. Now in its third generation, GCC continues to seek challenges while expanding its technological edge.
Among GCCs’satisfied customers, we are fortunate to have shared in the growth and success of many of Northern California’s finest businesses. GCC works to maintain a strong focus on client satisfaction and service, the constant pursuit of new technologies and providing a work place full of opportunity for our employees.
At Ghilotti Construction Company, we are proud of ourheritage and our accomplishments. We proudly stand behind the philosophy of our founder and grandfather, James Ghilotti, who instilled the importance of a strong work ethic and said, “Do good work. Be responsible. Take care of the community and the people who work for you.”
