NEW YORK, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LPCiminelli, one of Upstate New York's largest construction firms, announced today it has established an office in Manhattan to serve the New York City metropolitan area. The company, which is headquartered in Buffalo, has hired construction executive Steve Giordano to run the new office.
"We have always been a strategy-driven company, seeking to have our client relationships and industry partnerships lead the expansion of our geographic footprint as opposed to simply targeting a hot market and opening an office," said Louis P. Ciminelli, Chairman & CEO of LPCiminelli, Inc. "Presently, we have three significant projects in the greater New York region and more opportunities on the immediate horizon so the timing was right to establish a permanent presence in the city."
The company has hired Steve Giordano as Vice President in charge of the new office. Mr. Giordano brings nearly two decades of industry experience to the position, all in the tri-state area. He was most recently Project Executive/Co-Operations Manager for the Interior Division with Hunter Roberts Construction Group. Mr. Giordano is also an adjunct instructor at New York University, teaching numerous construction-related courses.
"Before we decided to take this step, we knew we had to find the right leader, someone with significant regional experience and ties to the downstate vendor network and talent pool who could plug right into our corporate culture and understand our value proposition," said Ciminelli. "Steve was a perfect fit in all those areas and we were very fortunate to recruit him."
Giordano said he was excited to lead LPCiminelli's venture into the tri-state market.
"LPCiminelli already has a well-established brand in our industry, considering they are ranked in ENR's Top 10 construction firms in New York," said Giordano. "I look forward to joining a team of highly-skilled construction professionals and leading our charge into this market. I believe potential clients, vendors and subcontractors will be very welcoming to the LPCiminelli approach to construction."

The company, an ISO 9001:2008 certified firm, offers a full range of construction services including program management, construction management, general contracting and design-build.
