Projects completed 2009 – present, by The Sisca Organization.
The future is coming to this corner of Westchester.
Sisca was hired to perform demolition. Here’s how it went!
This 172,000 square foot, 121 unit Affordable Housing Project for The Community Builders, one of the largest affordable housing developers in the USA, was a tri-venture where Sisca acted as Lead General Contractor.
Sisca self-performed the site work and concrete in addition to being the general contractor for this 80,000 square foot building with 67 units of affordable housing in Queens, NY. This is the third building constructed by Sisca for the same client.
Shown above, this 210,000 square foot project was comprised of senior apartments with retail shops at ground level. Built by Sisca, the developer was The Community Preservation Corporation, and the architect was Magnusson Architecture & Planning.
Acting as General Contractor for the Franciscan Friars, Sisca constructed a 50,000 square foot hill top community, that included approximately 25 housing units, a commercial kitchen, a community area and a new chapel. Sisca self-performed the site work for this project. In order to pour the foundations, Sisca cut into the rugged mountaintop with extensive blasting and hydraulic hammering. The rock was crushed and removed as “item 4” gravel material.
The Sisca Organization built a new public water park for Westchester County’s historic Tibbetts Brook Park, in Yonkers, NY. Featuring multiple pools, a “lazy river,” islands, water tubes and flumes, this water park is a recreational gem for county residents.
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.”

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.
