Founded in 1988 by Frank Connolly as a drywall, carpentry & millwork contractor, Cobra performed work as a subcontractor on commercial and residential interiors for various general contractors throughout New York City and the surrounding region.
in the early 1990’s Frank began to pursue general contracting work, while still working as a subcontractor.
In 1994 Frank opened our architectural woodworking shop. This allowed Cobra to perform the complete carpentry scope as subcontractor as well as pursue general contracting projects with extensive carpentry scopes.
In 1998, Cobra expanded again when Grant Kassap joined Cobra and we incorporated as Cobra Construction Concepts, with a focus on general contracting, self-performing the carpentry, millwork and architectural woodworking while still working as a subcontractor to other general contractors.
In 2006 after Frank Connolly’s untimely passing, Grant purchased the company’s assets and we became known as Cobra Contracting Corporation. We scaled back our operations to concentrate on our carpentry and woodworking strengths.
Today, we are in the same woodworking shop Frank Connolly opened up in 1994 and expanded in 2001 to 12,000 square feet. While we occasionally perform drywall and ceiling work along with our woodworking as well as a small amount of smaller general construction work for existing real estate and hospitality clients, our core work is architectural woodworking as subcontractors for general contractors, construction managers and direct to clients.
We fabricate and install cabinets, paneling, molding and trim, doors and frames and anything else made from wood and wood products. Our work is in New York City and the surrounding area. Typical projects include offices, restaurants, showrooms, retail spaces, schools, banks, hotel lobbies and the occasional residential apartment.
Products we manufacture include general cabinetry, pantries, counter tops, paneling, wood and glass partitions, wood doors and frames, free standing furniture, molding and trim.
Commitment to our projects, our customers, and delivering the best product possible are the ideals that have built us into an established industry leader. We look forward to continued success with our existing client base while pursuing new and varied work leads.
