PirTano Construction Company, Inc. is a multi-dimensional construction company that was founded by Mike Piraino, Joe Pantano, and Jack Horn in 1982. Now spanning almost 4 decades, PirTano has thoughtfully expanded its services from the early days as an Underground Utility Contractor; installing sewer and water systems and installing coax cable throughout the Chicagoland area into three areas of business, but also as an impressive a Heavy/Highway Contractor for both public and private customers. In addition, PirTano has provided an array of infrastructure and land development services and has expanded services as a Communications Contractor; adapting to the ever-evolving communications business. As a communications contractor we provide services such as fiber design/build projects, fiber splicing, directional boring services, underground and aerial construction and ultimately entering into the Contract Communication Installation business, which brings Internet, CATV and telephone into the homes of thousands upon thousands of customers throughout the Chicago and Northwest Indiana areas.
PirTano Construction’s Heavy Highway Division has been involved in many high-profile projects over the years including the reconstruction of Buckingham Fountain and the reconstruction of the Illinois Tollways I-90 and 294. PirTano was one of the major contractors to help build the beautiful and popular Arboretum Shopping Center in South Barrington. When the Del Webb Corporation came to Huntley Illinois, PirTano was invited to participate as one of the major subcontractors to complete this very high-profile, fast track project. Coordinating with other trades and dispatching multiple crews, to complete multiple areas of this 2300-acre site simultaneously.
Presently, PirTano is proud to play a major role in the exciting re-purposing of the 225-acre Motorola campus in Schaumburg, Illinois. PirTano is presently assisting the developers of this project in many ways. Starting with the abandonment and relocation of existing 16” watermains, while working to keep the existing multi- storied office buildings and data centers in service, all while the major spine road is being rebuilt and rerouted.
Over the years, PirTano has worked with just about every top 50 Home Builders in the state. The tougher the job or the tougher the schedule, PirTano is the underground contractor that Home Builders call upon to handle the problems and successfully complete the project.
