The Team at Kokolakis Contracting

The Valencia Ballroom is certainly a vast improvement from what we had to offer our clients prior to the renovation. You and your team should be proud of the key role that Kokolakis played in executing this challenge project. The time line we had to tackle this renovation was tight, and many challenges had to be overcome to meet the end goal. This would not have been achievable without the dedication and partnership we had with Kokolakis. Thank you and everyone on your team for a job well done!!

The contractor provided effective means for maintaining security and court operations during a fairly complex renovation. As project manager for the owner, I was impressed with their communication skills and thorough documentation during the course of the work…

The COARNG currently has close to two hundred million dollars of military construction occurring on six new projects with six different general contractors. The Kokolakis team is by far the best general contractor I have been associated with. The entire on site and office team are well versed in their trade, timely and exceptionally professional. I would highly recommend them on any project.

Kokolakis Contracting is an excellent contractor and has performed above all expectations on the Scott Barracks Renovation and Modernization project.  They have shown great attention to the project details ensuring that the project has stayed on budget and on time.  They have gone above and beyond to allow the Government to conduct walking tours with dignitaries with very limited notice. Kokolakis Contracting is a contractor who is committed to doing quality work.  They are very diligent in ensuring that all phase of the contract are met.  From the quality of workmanship to the schedule of the project.  Their excellent workmanship and project management skills have made it possible for Scott Barracks to be such a success.

Dan Middleton, Mission and Installation Contracting Command, NY

One of the best contractors I have worked with in my 41 year construction management career. Major portions of the projects were completed and turned over earlier than required by contract.

Stephen DeNardis, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, NY

Kokolakis Contracting has been a pleasure to work with since the start of this project. This project had significant challenges and Kokolakis has worked through each issue in collaboration with the project team.

I would highly recommend Kokolakis for any future projects as the firm performed this contract to the complete satisfaction of the government.

Black History Month is a time to recognize, understand and celebrate the culture, contributions and achievements of black Americans throughout our history. In recognition of black achievements in construction, @kokolakisbuilds is shedding light on one of history’s most influential architects.

Robert Robinson Taylor (1868 – 1942) was the first African American student enrolled at MIT and the first accredited African American architect; prior to his education, he was a foreman and carpenter for his father, who had a successful career as a builder and contractor. Taylor graduated from MIT in 1892 and was hired by Booker T. Washington (a prominent black educator) to design and construct numerous buildings for the Tuskegee Institute – a historically black college and university (HBCU) that focused on industrial curriculum.

Additionally, he worked as an instructor for the Institute and introduced the use of plans and specifications in the curriculum and emphasized that construction should be met with both hand and mind. During his 30+ year career as an architect he designed dozens of buildings for high-profile universities across the southern United States, including numerous HBCUs.
