Beyond Our Words

We like to say the proof is in the projects, and the words our clients provide speak to the quality of work Grae-Con Construction offers. We’re proud to partner with these professionals and others throughout the Great Lakes region.

    The quality of workmanship and professionalism of Grae-Con’s staff assures a successful project absent of delays, cost over runs and long punch lists. We would highly recommend Grae-Con for any project requiring exceptional quality and expertise.

    Grae-Con did an excellent job on our two story, $14 million dollar addition to our on-site physician office building. I personally found Bob Gribben to be an honest, straightforward man who followed through on his commitments. I highly recommend Grae-Con.

“The Ohio County Development Authority has had the opportunity to use various contractor and construction managers. More recently, we were afforded the opportunity to work with Grae-Con on two, multimillion dollar projects with very tight budgets and construction schedules. Simply put, they are one of the best in the business. As Construction Manager and General Trades Contractor, they handled a majority of issues on-site without bringing them to the owner's desk and worked diligently to keep both projects within budget and on schedule.”

Gregory L. Stewart, Secretary/Treasurer

“Marietta College and Grae-Con Construction have enjoyed a strong working relationship over the past several years. They have consistently been forthright and collaborative in their work with our architects and engineers, their sub-contractors, local governmental agencies, and our program personnel, including professors and other academicians.

From the field superintendent to the project manager to office personnel and owners, they've shown exemplary management and problem-solving abilities. They've been particularly skilled at securing work timeliness, quantity, and quality, and being forceful with subs and suppliers if needed.

I've been involved in higher education construction projects since 1977 and have encountered both good and bad contractors. For the reasons expressed above, Grae-Con is among the best.”

  • Dewey J. Guida, President
    Guida Enterprises
    I have had the pleasure to work with Grae-Con Construction, Inc., on four design/build projects within the past 10 years and have known Robert Gribben for several years prior to those projects. In my opinion, Mr. Gribben and his firm are exceptional in their work as a general contractor and elite as a design/build contractor. My next project will be with no other than Grae-Con Construction. The design/build process has been nothing less than professional, precise and very communicative.

    Ocean Air International, Inc.
    From ensuring proper deliveries, to negotiating with neighboring land owners, to having to construct an initially unforeseen retention pond, Grae-Con handled each situation with immediate response, precise planning, and with little added cost or time to the project. They greatly exceeded my expectations. By using an accelerated construction schedule, they were able to complete the office complex in just seven months; a project I thought would take well over a year.
