PirTano Construction Co. Inc.

PIRTANOAfter 35 years, PirTano maintains professionalism in its work. 

PirTano Construction Co. Inc. provides a high level of quality no matter what type of project it takes on. “Whether [customers] require our heavy-highway utility construction division, our communications division or our installation division, all clients can be assured of quality and professionalism when dealing with PirTano’s experienced staff and field personnel,” it says.

The 35-year-old firm “is a financially sound, tightly managed company, which given the current economic climate is an important factor when considering [our clients’] construction needs,” PirTano says. “Our philosophy is one of fairness and honesty with a focus on customer satisfaction, delivering only the highest level of quality for [their] project.”

Based in Addison, Ill., the company’s heavy-highway division specializes in multiple areas, including sanitary/storm sewers, water mains and force mains, lift stations, interceptor sewers and underground detention systems. It also offers services involving directional boring and wastewater reclamation systems.

When it comes to the company’s communications division, “PirTano has been doing utility construction work for over 25 years,” it says. “We build and splice fiber optic rings, coaxial systems, conduit/duct systems, etc., as well as engineer and design systems.” pirtano box

The company also is a turnkey contractor that can perform open-cut trenching and aerial work with its staff and equipment. “We are also skilled at blowing fiber in conduit systems,” it says. “PirTano has built and placed thousands of miles of communication networks and has the experience and personnel to take on all types of projects.”

Its installation division completes video, high-speed data and telephone projects. “We do large-scale residential installations in addition to installations in schools, high rises, senior living communities, apartment complexes, colleges and campus environments,” PirTano says. “With our supervisory team and over 150 proven technicians, we are able to perform quality installations of all types.”

Home Sweet Home

PirTano’s main headquarters is located on a three-acre site in Addison. There, the company operates a 12,000-square-foot facility that encompasses its office and shop.

“Our aerial construction department, underground construction department, engineering and design department, and estimating department are all housed at this facility, as well as the office staff,” PirTano says. “Twenty underground sewer and water crews are deployed from this location as well as our crews, who install aerial and underground cable, along with telephone and other fiber optic projects.”

PirTano says it has the ability to take on any project, despite the size or detail. “Our high bondability and outstanding rating assures PirTano Construction can finish the job on time and to the highest standards,” it says.

The company’s previous projects include a renovation of Buckingham Fountain in Chicago. PirTano partnered on the project with the Chicago Park District and Burling Builders Inc.

PirTano followed a seven-days-a-week schedule to finish the project on time as it installed new waterlines and storm drains around the fountain. “Buckingham Fountain is just one of Chicago’s many, many beautiful historical points of interest,” it declares.

Completely Qualified

PirTano has earned recognitions for its work, including the prequalification rating of “UNLIMITED” from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) in 2008. For this status, the department “requires a full audited review, along with work history and financial strength in issuing their prequalification,” the company says.

“This financial tool greatly increases PirTano Construction Co.’s ability to build challenging projects for all agencies in the state of Illinois,” PirTano says. “Because of PirTano’s 30-plus years of experience, this unlimited prequalification represents tremendous future opportunities for continued growth of the corporation in the construction industry.”

The company also won the 2012 Best of Portage Award in the Special Trade Contractors category from the Portage Award Program committee. “Their selection of PirTano is a reflection of the hard work of not only PirTano, but of many people that have supported our business and contributed to the subsequent success of our organization,” it says.

Good Representation

PirTano’s affiliates include the Underground Contractors Association (UCA) of Illinois. Based in Itasca, Ill., the non-profit association was established in 1957 and consists of contractors and suppliers in the sewer, water, utility and underground industries.

The organization represents more than 200 contractors and associate member companies. “UCA maintains a wide range of benefits, educational opportunities and services designed specifically for our members,” it says.
