John DiLucia Construction Resources, Inc. is proud to announce that John DiLucia has joined the team as the new operations manager for Atlanta Kitchen, Inc. DiLucia will be responsible for the day-to-day operations, as well as long term planning.

DiLucia was born and raised in Lansdale, Pennsylvania where he started his family and began his own business. He has two daughters, Brittany, who is 27, and Gabrielle, who is 15. DiLucia loves that he had the chance to raise his daughters in the hometown where he grew up and that they had the chance to attend the same high school as their Dad.

With a degree in electronics engineering, DiLucia joined the granite business in 2006 at a start-up company in Pennsylvania. He helped designed the plant infrastructure and the process flow. Within five years, the business grew to one of the largest fabrication shops in the U.S.

“Through my years building a company from the ground up, I have learned all aspects of granite fabrication from polishing to machining, cad, inventory control and management,” explained DiLucia.

There, he also developed a desktop and mobile application specifically designed to manage all stages of granite production. The application allows for complete accountability throughout the entire fabrication process.

Connor Bode at his SOARD makeover reveal The sun shone down on Jefferson, Georgia as hundreds of friends and family gathered with bated breath in anticipation. The crowd was awaiting the arrival of a procession that helped provide a space for a sixteen-year-old boy to reach his full potential.

Connor Bode was diagnosed with Open-Lip Bilateral Schizencephaly at five months of age. This disease, along with the side effect of Cerebral Palsy, makes Connor’s mobility and every day activities like showering more difficult. However, with the help of Sunshine on a Ranney Day (SOARD), this procession of fire trucks and a gracious biker, Connor was gifted with a room and bathroom specifically designed for him that will make living life a little bit easier.

Ride to Give, a charitable nonprofit organization founded by twelve-time Ironman Champion Dave Nazaroff, contributed to this life-changing remodel as Nazroff biked hundreds of miles from Nyack, New York before arriving in Jefferson. Donations from this ride concluding at the reveal of Connor’s bedroom contributed to making the remodel possible. The biker, along with fire trucks that provided inspiration for the theme of the new bedroom, arrived at the Bode home where loved ones were cheering, smiles were bright and Connor’s face was shining with excitement.

Construction Resources had the privilege of partnering with SOARD to assist in creating Connor’s dream room. To help Connor realize his full potential, Atlanta Kitchen provided a Cambria Berwyn countertop for a wheelchair accessible vanity. Additionally, Mohawk, a Builders Floor Covering & Tile partner, supplied laminate flooring. These contributions played a role in enhancing Connor’s new wheelchair accessible bathroom, giving him more comfort and independence in his home.Cambria Berwyn countertop and Mohawk laminate flooring for Connor's new wheelchair accessible bathroom

Hope was renewed, sighs of relief were exhaled and tears were shed as the family entered Connor’s new room. All of the hands that played a part in making this dream room a reality were able to provide a retreat for a sixteen-year-old boy who deserves the world. We are grateful that we could be a set of those helping hands.

Construction Resources partners with SOARD to bring hope to the Bode familySixteen year old Connor Bode is just like any other teenager. He grows taller and more handsome every day, wants to be more independent, is full of surprises and lights up every room with his contagious smile. However, Connor was diagnosed with Open-Lip Bilateral Schizencephaly at five months of age. This rare brain disorder, characterized by abnormal slits in the brain’s cerebral hemispheres, causes Connor to experience impaired hearing and vision, abnormal muscle tone, seizures, hydrocephaly and partial paralysis. Cerebral Palsy is another side effect of the disease, making his mobility and every day activities like showering even more difficult.

Despite this painful illness, Connor has an incredible support system that helps him reach his goals and exceed expectations. As an extension of that support system, we at Construction Resources are thrilled to partner again with Sunshine on a Ranney Day (SOARD), an Atlanta-based nonprofit that creates dream room and home makeovers for children with long-term illnesses.
