Full steam ahead at ACC.

ACC Construction has completed its second Cold Stone Creamery in Staten Island at 240 Page Avenue Avenue, adding another one of the popular ice cream and entertainment franchises to the area, announced Michele Medaglia, president of the New York-based WBE general contracting and construction management firm.

Located in a heavily trafficked strip mall, the project entailed the conversion of a 1,300 s/f new retail space into its current status as an ice cream parlor.

The scope of the work included a new store front, demising wall, ADA-compliant bathroom, kitchen equipment, high-end millwork, paint wall covering and installation of ceramic tile. In addition, ACC Construction has been awarded a third Cold Stone Creamery, to be built in Forest Hills, Queens.

Coordination of owner supplied trades and equipment were integral to the success of the fast-track six week project, which was managed by ACC Construction's Project Executive Tullio Medaglia. Constant

ACC Construction has also recently completed the renovations of two lobbies at Ruppert Yorkville Towers Condominium at 1601-1641 Third Avenue.

The buildings, spanning from 90th to 92nd Street between Second and Third avenues, contain a total of 1,257 units. They were converted into condominiums from the Mitchell-Lama Moderate Housing Program in January 2003. The upgrades and modifications were implemented as part of a capital improvements program for the condominiums.

The work entailed extensive millwork, new storefronts for the ground floor retail tenants and renovations to the buildings' office space, postal space and elevator lobbies. In addition, ACC was responsible for the installation of stone flooring and concrete work.

Despite the challenges inherent to highly trafficked areas with residential and retail density, ACC completed the work within schedule.

"This was a top-of-the-line project," said Medaglia. "The condominium and its managing agent, RY Management Group, created an environment that would appeal to future condominium buyers."

Lance Bogart was ACC Construction's Project Executive and Samuel Sampson was the Project Supervisor.
