Executive Towers at Lido
Providing the most spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean is the Executive Towers at Lido, a premier high-rise luxury apartment building. It offers all the amenities that the most discerning person may desire along with being at the doorstep of the fine sands of the most desirable beach on Long Island. Unfortunately, this attribute is also its drawback because the salt laden moisture air wreaks havoc on the building’s metal components. This was the case with the balconies around the Executive Towers at Lido. After being subjected to harsh seaside conditions, the steel supporting the balconies corroded to a point where they no longer provided the structural support they were designed for. Boccia came to the rescue and methodically dismantled the balcony concrete encasement so the steel could be replaced. Their team performed complicated procedures and used innovative methods to restore the balconies suspended from the sides of the building, bringing them back to safe and sound conditions so they can be enjoyed for future years.
Long Island State Veterans Home
Caring for America’s heroes and serving those who served through skilled nursing care, adult day health care and short-term rehabilitation, the Long Island State Veterans Home plays an imperative role. That is why keeping it dry was equally important. When it was found to be leaking, the administrators called upon the experts at Boccia to diagnose the situation. Boccia performed probes of the vulnerable locations, identified deficiencies and designed a scope of work to correct the defects. They were then charged with the task of implementing the work. They disassembled the masonry and installed unique flashing details of their own design which could be installed with minimal disruption to the inhabitants. Upon completion, it would be hard to identify where the work was performed. The building was made dry by the specialists at Boccia so it could continue in its purpose of giving back to so many who have given so much.

United States Merchant Marine Academy
The United States Merchant Marine Academy is a federal service academy that educates leaders of exemplary character who are committed to serve the national security, marine transportation, and economic needs of the United States as licensed Merchant Marine Officers and commissioned officers in the Armed Forces. It is located on the waterfront of the North Shore of Long Island, also known as The Gold Coast. In the 1970’s, the engineers charged with maintaining the facilities were inundated with ground water in numerous buildings, some of which had historical significance of their own. In stepped Mr. Boccia, who had an innate natural aptitude and understanding of natural occurrences and how they relate to structures. He designed and installed systems to dewater the ground under and around the buildings that are still working to this day and most importantly, keeping them dry.
Forest Hills Gardens
Forest Hills Gardens is one of America’s oldest planned communities. It was modeled after England’s Garden Cities and intended to create an ideal environment that incorporated shared green space with urban convenience. At the heart of the village is Station Square, designed in 1907 by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. It is an architecturally stunning entranceway to one of the most idyllic communities in New York. After over a century of use it required restoration and Boccia was the perfect choice for the job. They had been on the short list of approved contractors in the Village since the 1970s and they descended from family that worked on the iconic Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in the 1950s. Their team meticulously restored the masonry elements of Station Square to its original grandeur for new generations to enjoy.
