"Stalco has benefitted immensely from the dedication and professionalism of its employees," said Stalco principal and CFO Kevin Harney. "We promised our personnel that no one would be laid off due to the economy, but in exchange requested that everyone on the team gets involved in business development efforts, commits to deadlines and ensures the highest level of service in all interactions with clients. The success of this approach is reflected in Stalco's latest national ranking and the fact that we have expanded our staff by 50% amidst the worst recession in the recent history."
"The firm's proactive approach in addressing the recession has resulted in a solid pipeline of assignments," said Stalco president Alan Nahmias.
"Today, Stalco has more than $135 million worth of projects under contract, nearly four times the amount just four years ago."
Stalco's current and recent work includes the $8.4-million, LEED Platinum-targeted Battery Park City Community Center and the $15-million restoration of the landmark Pier A, which aims at LEED Silver certification, both in Manhattan; the $24-million exterior renovation and sound abatement program at the Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology in Queens, NY; the $19-million, 30,000-square-foot new Elmhurst Community Library in Queens, NY, which targets LEED Silver rating; the $5.2-million Emergency Department expansion and renovation at the Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center in the Bronx; and the $1.4-million Home Fair store at the Atlas Park Mall in Queens NY.
The firm's Long Island project portfolio includes the on-call Construction Management contract for the 778,000-square foot CA, Inc. Global Headquarters in Islandia, NY; the $16.5-million expansion and renovation of the Long Beach High School in Lido Beach, NY; the 14,000-square-foot IGA Supermarket in Southold, NY; the Ultra Diamonds jewelry store in Riverhead, NY; the $1.2-million SUNY Old Westbury College Bursar and Financial Aid Offices; and the $30-million expansion and renovation program for the Three Village Central School District in Suffolk County.
Since the firm's inception, the entire Stalco team has been involved in supporting the local community through responsible corporate citizenship and charity work. Harney and Nahmias co-founded Contractors for Kids (CFK), the largest Long Island charity supported by the construction, architecture and real estate community. Composed of nearly 300 businesses and individuals, CFK provides financial assistance to children and their families impacted by health-related crises. To date, CFK has raised $3 million and assisted more than 250 families in need of funding for medical procedures, travel, equipment, long-term care, mortgage payments, and, sadly, funeral expenses.
