Who We Are

A Family of Passionate Builders Since 1914

When our great-grandfather James Ghilotti, a skilled stonemason & craftsman, came from Italy to America in the early 1900s, he started GBI with the sweat of his brow and a few simple principles: “Earn respect by doing a job well, treat employees with courtesy and respect, and do good work for the community in which you live and work.” These principles still guide us today and have been the cornerstone of our success serving the San Francisco Bay Area for more than 100 years.
