Boccia, Inc. – Our Story
In 1955, Ike was in the White House, the Brooklyn Dodgers played the New York Yankees in the World Series and Marlon Brando’s “On the Waterfront” swept the Academy Awards. It was also around this time when a seasoned union bricklayer named Rizziero Boccia went out on his own from the trunk of his Dodge. Within a short number of years, he made a name for himself in the industry through hard work and a dedication for building things “the right way.” These principles would become the foundations of Boccia Inc.
Rizziero passed these construction traits to his eldest sons, Frank and Joe, who went on to carry the baton of the Boccia name. In the 1980s, key personnel joined the family business, and still remain, as valuable team members. General Manager Mauricio Duraes and Office Manager Stacy Moskowitz have now been with the company for close to 40 years.
Rizziero’s youngest son, Vincent, joined the family business in the 1990s after becoming a licensed professional engineer and Adam Andrejczuk became their lead project manager. From that point, the company’s foundation was set. They would go on to complete thousands of more projects, garnering a unique combination of experience and knowledge that is unparalleled in the industry.
Boccia Inc. has worked across Long Island and the five boroughs of New York City, waterproofing and restoring basements, balconies, parking garages, plaza decks, and facades. In 1984, they received a patent for their basement waterproofing system, which is used across the country. Their expertise in brick restoration and waterproofing was called upon for the restoration of the landmark Jones Beach Tower. Their experience was critical as they helped rebuild many homes and buildings damaged by Hurricane Sandy. From the Cathedral of the Incarnation to the historical Forest Hills Gardens and thousands of projects in between, they have proved time and time again that they are clearly the best of the best. Withstanding the hardest test of all, the test of time.
