The James Nicholas Story

Every Great Story Has A Greater Beginning

James Nicholas was created as a sistering company to the already established Almas Construction. Almas Construction was founded in 2008 as a spinoff from its predecessor organization, Zoumas Homes. Combined, the two entities have completed more than 1,000 construction projects with a budgeted value of over $300,000,000. Today, Almas maintains three primary business units: Commercial Construction; Storm Recovery; and Custom Residential (branded as James Nicholas Custom Home Builders).

Mr. Aracri has more than 20 years as an owner and executive of several businesses. He was the developer and founder of SkyZone in Mount Sinai prior to selling the business in 2016.
