Nativo General Contracting was founded by Sebastiano Nativo in 1966, who later
incorporated the company in 1968. The company, like many others, started in the
construction industry as a residential remodeler, specializing in masonry and concrete.
With the good reputation that Sebastiano, known as Sam, had cemented for himself,
no pun intended, he was able to build a thriving business.
In 1969, Sam’s brother Cristofaro, known as Chris, joined the company then shortly
after that, by their youngest brother Vincent. Together, the three brothers worked
hard to build on the ideals that make up the cornerstone of Nativo, LLC today: client
service, integrity, reliability and cost efficiency.
In 1975, after the breakout of the scandals and abuse of the Willowbrook State School
in Staten Island was uncovered by Geraldo Rivera, Nativo, LLC stepped into the not-
for-profit arena. This was a delicate time for anyone working with the mentally ill and it
was a learning process for all that were involved.
For the next fifteen years, Nativo GC had continued to work on private and not-for-
profit residential and commercial projects, as well as projects for the US Postal Service,
the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the Port Authority and other federally and state funded
In the late 1980’s, Nativo GC decided to work exclusively for the not-for-profit sector,
specifically for persons with mental illness and developmental disabilities. Projects
included residences, schools, day care, medical clinics and executive offices.
In 1997, Sam’s son Vincent S., joined Nativo GC with a degree in Architecture.
Together the Nativo family continues to grow steadily by adhering to its tradition of
providing clients with a high standard of service and superior finished base building
upgrades, renovations, gut-rehabs and new construction projects.
In 2002, Nativo GC was renamed Nativo, LLC, naming Vincent and Vincent S. sole
partners of the company dedicated to having a positive impact on the quality of
construction, and on the quality of life, in New York City.
