Villa Construction Inc. has become the go-to contractor for architectural concrete in the New York City tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The company specializes in cast-in-place concrete that is used for the exterior or interior ornamentation or finish of a building. “That’s our forte,” says Italo DiNunzio, chief estimator and project executive. “We have done many very unique projects.”

The Hawthorne, N.Y.-based concrete contractor was founded in 1984 by Antonio Dellorso and has remained focused on providing excellent service and exceptional craftsmanship. From pouring a foundation to the most complex water pollution facilities, Villa Construction says it has successfully completed every project to the satisfaction of its clients.

Villa Construction employs eight people in its office and an average of 50 to 60 people in the field, but has ranged to as many as 125 depending on the projects. “We have skilled carpenters whom are men we highly depend on to put the formwork up,” DiNunzio says. “Our labor force consists of union members. They are men who stick with us for many, many years and develop their skills on the job.”

The skyline of New York City is what most people envision when they think about the city, but the skyscrapers are only the tip of the iceberg. What really keeps New York City and other metropolises running is the infrastructure underground, and in recent years the traditional utilities of electricity, gas and water have been joined by a new utility: information. The importance of 24/7 access to the Internet has necessitated the construction of a new form of infrastructure, and ZenFi Networks is one of the few companies working in this new utility that can provide a complete turnkey service.
