Established in August 1977, ZCA’s founder, Zev Cohen was previously Chief Engineer for ITT’s 45,000 acres Palm Coast Community, located in Flagler County, Florida.

Initially, ZCA was a one-person firm, renting space in an Ormond Beach bank building. Technical and administrative staff was soon added, and in 1980, ZCA moved to its own nearby building, a distinctive Mediterranean-style structure constructed around 1937. Mr. Cohen created a loyal clientele following with his service-oriented firm.

As his reputation for service grew so did his client base. The sustained growth of the firm over the last 20 years necessitated another move. In December 2007, ZCA moved from its long-time address of 55 Seton Trail to 300 Interchange Boulevard, Ormond Beach, just west of I-95. The new building houses over 40 employees and provides room to grow.
