Glaziers 718 / PaulPieretti
< ^ >


Paul Pieretti, journeyman glazier, 10 years

When I drive down Highway 101, I can pick out all the buildings I’ve worked on. That’s a sense of accomplishment. This is one of the largest buildings I’ve worked on, 64 stories. We’re attaching the sill metal, and then we will start on the store fronts below. I did a lot of custom work on houses, but I prefer big buildings because of all the challenges. You never feel static. One time I did a building up in Sacramento, and I got to do the signals for the crane bringing in the glass panels. That was fun. Another time I helped a friend who was repairing a 90-year-old sky light at Berkeley’s Le Conte Hall. It was his job, I can’t take credit for it, but I helped him out.
