Mr. Piraino has been involved in many different and unique construction projects since 1970. Having worked his way up through the ranks, he has been afforded the opportunity to experience this business from many different perspectives.
Mr. Piraino started his career in underground utilities in 1970. He learned the business from the ground up. Over the years he has been involved in such major projects as the Tri‑State Tollway, the I‑55 rebuild and many other county and municipal projects. He has held many positions in the industry from field supervisor, to now president and “co-owner” of this contracting company.
Since 1986, Mike has been heavily involved with Underground Contractor’s Association (UCA) of Illinois. He has served as chairman of the Membership Committees and then transferred to the Legislative Affairs Committee which he still chairs and was President of UCA from 2002 to 2004.

Since the inception of PirTano Construction Company, the objective is to hire individuals with diversified skills and a commitment to exceptional customer service. As president of PirTano Construction Company, Mike is aligned with this vision. He has assimilated a staff which is dedicated to quality services resulting in customer satisfaction.
Mr. Piraino is also committed to promoting and developing new areas for PirTano Construction Company. A company that is static will not last the test of time. “We have a wealth of talented people, who are extremely adaptable and versatile. You must have a dynamic staff of this caliber in order combat the constant changes in our industry. We must always push to keep growing as a company. I am proud to represent my staff and PirTano Construction Company.”
