About Gilbane Building Company

Beginning as a small family-run carpentry business in 1870, Gilbane Building Company hasn’t strayed from its roots. Still operating as a privately held, family-owned company, now with more than 45 office locations worldwide, Gilbane continues to dedicate itself to delivering quality projects to clients and developing future growth. Gilbane offers a full slate of construction and facilities-related services—from pre-construction planning and integrated consulting capabilities to comprehensive construction management, general contracting, design-build, and facility management services.

Since 1949, Gilbane has been delivering construction services in New York State for clients across an array of market sectors, including commercial office, multi-unit and high rise residential, cultural, education, healthcare, public sector, mission critical, and science and technology. Gilbane has multiple projects in Western New York and recently completed the second phase of the Northland Central project, which includes a new home for Buffalo Manufacturing Works.
