Gilbane is one of the nation’s oldest design and build companies and is recognized as a leader in the industry. Founded in 1873 by William Gilbane and his brother Thomas as a family-run carpentry and general contracting shop in Providence, Rhode Island, their firm quickly developed a reputation for building high-quality homes, mansions and public buildings such as the President's House at Brown University and the Casino in Roger Williams Park.

This reputation remains true today as evidenced by our 139 years in existence and counting. Our vision to be the premier company serving a full spectrum of facility needs to our clients and opportunities for our employees remains steadfast, as do our core values.
