“Chris’s own signature is masked and subtly laced in and out of the designs. Very tasteful. His ability to listen and translate my ideas coupled with his own expertise made working with him a pleasure, better yet, an experience. His enthusiasm and commitment to “Kaizen,” continuous improvement, is both refreshing and brilliant. Long after the project had been completed, he is still amiable and interested in “how things are going.” We are very proud of Chris’s work, certainly, he is fast becoming one of the country’s leading architects, design firms and builders, nonpareil.”RICHARD CALCASOLAMaximus New York, NY
” New World Design Builders, with Chris Kofitsas was selected as general contractor. They were more than up for the project. Even with other ongoing projects, they were able to meet their commitments to me. The quality of their work and their desire to please the client, were a welcome addition at a stressful time.”JOSEPH STRAFACIJoseph Martin Salon New York, NY
“Chris Kofitsa’s is a very motivated and talented designer/builder who has a deep understanding of how to coordinate even the most complicated projects (as ours turned out to be). Throughout the duration, Chris dedicated himself to providing the best possible design and quality construction possible. He demonstrated the ability to take responsibility not only for his own contributions, but also for the entire subcontractors in order to ensure that all things related to the project proceeded according to schedule.”CARMEN DEPASQUALEDePasquale Spa Morris Plains, NJ
“Chris Kofitsa’s is the only person I could honestly say I would use again out of all the contractors I’ve worked with in the past. Having both the design and construction come from one shop truly streamlines the process. If nothing else, having one entity responsible for the entire project eliminates the typical finger pointing which have found usually occurs on projects. More than anything else, Chris and his team have a high degree of integrity and I recommend them without hesitation.”JEFFREY CHODOROWChina Grill inc., New York, NY
