Culture & Community
At Unistress we prioritize giving back to our community.
Serving our home region with personal time and valuable skills, the employee-led Unistress Community Crew donates their time and talent, assisting local schools, municipalities, and service organizations to help build and maintain neighborhood playgrounds and sports parks, strengthen early-literacy networks, and support local animal shelters.
That community spirit, deeply ingrained through every element of the company, is another important element of the Petricca family legacy. Corporate Social Responsibility has always been central to our culture at Unistress, and we choose to support a wide selection of local charitable organizations working across healthcare, education, social services, and the arts – each of whom take part in strengthening our community.
I’ve been working here 20 years. I like working on bridges and special projects – doing something different every day..
You might look at the operation and think, this is just a bit of precast – but Unistress just produced the new air traffic control tower at Teterboro airport. …This is a pretty cool place to work.
The company’s always been caring and understanding. They welcome people in.
I like when a job is complete in the field, when you can stand back and look at a major project like the Tappan Zee Bridge and say, "I did that. I was a part of that."
