Foschi Construction Corp. has performed many pro-bono community service projects. Recently, we were contacted by John Reid, Administration Manager and Kimberly Vesey, Vice President and General Counsel for Building Homes for Heroes, who build, renovate and gift homes for our most deserving veterans.
They found a location for their New York Headquarters in Island Park, NY. The space needed to be renovated to accommodate the growing volunteer staff that Homes for Heroes now requires.
Foschi Construction Corp. is honored to be able to help this great organization, in particular because our youngest son and brother is an active-duty Naval Special Warfare Officer, and we understand the sacrifice our brave men and women who serve make on behalf of our nation.
We worked closely with Architect Arnold S. Montag R.A. of AM/PM Design & Consulting, P.C. and interior designer Christine Ambers of Habitech Planning & Design, Inc. Working with these other professionals who all had their hearts in the right place made it an enjoyable, rewarding experience and the outcome reflects it.
Building Homes for Heroes, a Long Island-based nonprofit organization that gifts mortgage-free home to injured veterans nationwide, began demolition on its new office space on Austin Boulevard in Island Park on June 27, 2019. The organization’s founder and CEO is Andy Pujol ( back row, fourth from left). Building Homes for Heroes beneficiaries, vendors and contractor (Bob Foschi, P.E. last person on the right) gathered to celebrate the first day of the demolition.
