In this post is a photo of one of the many stones ( Deer Island Granite ) that Petrillo Stone Corporation fabricated for the Comcast Building (formerly the G E Building). We originally described this project in an earlier blog post. In addition to fabricating the stone, we also gold leafed the carved letters and logo by hand.
Ralph Petrillo was the project manager on this project. He oversaw the fabrication and gold leafing of this project, as well as made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. Although the stones were completed a few months ago, the official unveiling of the new stones was July first. If you’re walking through New York at any point this summer, be sure to keep an eye out for our work! We’ve had the privilege of working on this and many other iconic buildings in the city and are so proud to be part of New York’s history, as it’s been such a positive piece of ours.
