The Triangle is in the heart of North Carolina and encompasses the cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, as well as the communities of Cary, Apex, and Morrisville, and surrounding communities like Pittsboro, Holly Springs, Wake Forest, and Garner. The Triangle is sometimes known as the Research Triangle and is anchored by three main research universities: NC State, UNC Chapel Hill, and Duke University. The Triangle includes Research Triangle Park, a research park formed in the 1950s that houses prominent high-tech research and development organizations including GlaxoSmithKline, Cisco Systems, and many others. Pomarico Construction has done projects all across the Triangle and surrounding counties including Wake County, Durham County, Orange County, Chatham County, and Johnston County.
