What Clients say about Sisca.

“What I especially appreciated about Sisca was their high level of integrity. I’ve been involved in the construction of many buildings and I was especially impressed by the methodical way Sisca scrutinized every potential Change Order to make sure each was justified and accurate. Many were rejected or reduced before they were submitted to the Owner for review and approval.

“Some general contractors just pass along to the building owner change orders, without making the effort to determine whether the extra charges are warranted or valid, but not Sisca. Sisca was well organized and held the sub to their contract. If a change order came to me through Sisica, it was most likely warranted. That means a lot to me.”
– – William A. Burke, R.A. Vice President, Director of Design &   Construction,  The Community Preservation Corporation

What Clients Say About Sisca

“Sisca was General Contractor for our 60 West Project, which was completed in the Fall of 2011. This is a 43-unit affordable housing project that required a contractor who would understand the problems dealing wih multiple funding sources, project cost restraints and deficit structural plans. With all the complications, Sisca was able to deliver our project one month earlier than was required and at our budget.”

Mill Street, Middletown, NY- Retrofit of old mill – Affordable Housing, Community Facility and Rooftop Solar

This project involved the repurposing of an historic mill building, and construction of a new building for new apartments and a new community facility — all while preserving the historic exterior facade of the mill. The original old building was collapsing, so before any repurposing could take place,  Sisca had to erect structural steel on the outside of the mill to prevent it from moving. The second phase was to erect an entirely new structural steel skeleton system inside the mill to permanently stabilize the building, and to support a rooftop solar array, so the building could become home to dozens of families. A glass breezeway was constructed to link the old with the new.
