By Jim Harris

There’s a reason many of the nation’s most innovative and successful companies look to UA Builders Group to meet their office and commercial remodeling and build-out needs. The New York City-based company believes in being equally innovative when it comes to the services it provides.

The company extensively uses building information modeling (BIM) software for a top client, WeWork – the leader in shared coworking space nationally. “WeWork, being a tech- saavy enterprise themselves, are very into our  BIM technology capabilities and strongly believe in BIM’s ability to produce a much faster finished product. It’s important to them because they can open new locations and start filling desks sooner. CEO Albert Gjonbalaj says. “Right now we’re using it on every project with them, and extending it to other clients open to using it.”

The fast-paced world of retail and restaurant construction energizes Cocozza Group and has allowed the company to grow substantially every year since its inception. Founder and President Dan Cocozza fell in love with the work early in his construction career and decided to strike out on his own in 2012.

“I love the fast-paced nature of those projects; they’re all two to three months long, instead of two to three years long, which is what I was previously working on,” he recalls. “I love that each project is so unique, especially in New York City. We got our first project in January 2013 and we’ve been really fortunate to be going ever since.”
