Since our establishment in 1974, Citnalta Construction Corp. has strived to improve the communities in which we build. Using the construction industry’s best practices, we work with our clients to build safe, high quality, and environmentally sound projects.
Citnalta’s core values of integrity, hard work, passion, and professionalism are what each of our employees brings to the table when approaching a project. We treat our clients, partners, subcontractors, and suppliers with respect, deal honestly and fairly, pursue every avenue of excellence, and are accountable and reliable in every situation. This is the “Citnalta Factor” that guides and sustains our business and adds value to each of our projects.
Our Core Values
Citnalta operates primarily in the public sector as a design builder and a general contractor. Our clients include the NYC Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), NYC School Construction Authority (SCA), Dormitory Authority State of New York (DASNY), New York Office of General Services (OGS), NYC Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS), and Hudson River Park Trust, among others.
The people of Citnalta are our most valuable and important resource. They possess energy, dedication and integrity that permeates the entire company. We call it "The Citnalta Factor." You see it in the way we approach everything from recruiting practices to the way we treat our clients and work with our subcontractors and designers.
Our commitment to our core values leads us to treating our subcontractors, designers and clients as our partners. Citnalta is proud of our team, many of our employees have been with Citnalta for over twenty years. We continue to recruit the best talent, providing them with mentorship and growing their passion and commitment to Citnalta’s values.
As a General Contractor. Citnalta's strong project management skills, hands-on senior management, and self-performance of key items of work is what sets us apart from other general contractors. We have built and maintained close relationships with the region’s best subcontractors. These relationships enable Citnalta to provide the best value for all of our clients.
As a Design Builder. Since our first Design Build award in 1998, Citnalta has established a proven track record of successful completion for all our Design Build projects. We at Citnalta have found that it is our collaborative culture that proves to be most effective throughout the Design Build process and allows us to work with owners to minimize their risk and even reduce project delivery schedules. Our team of construction professionals understands the importance of working closely with our design partners and together we are able to combine design, permit, and construction schedules to streamline our projects.
Construction Manager. Citnalta's track record and project management skills make Citnalta well suited to effectively represent owners' interests and ensure effective management of the schedule, cost, quality, and safety.
Mentoring. Citnalta has a long-term interest in developing minority and women-owned businesses, small businesses, and service-disabled veteran-owned business subcontractors. Since 2010, Citnalta has actively participated as a mentor in the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and the New York City School Construction Authority (NYCSCA) mentor programs. Citnalta implements the start-up and ongoing management of the contractors working on various MTA construction projects for the MTA Small Business Development Program (SBDP). Additionally, Citnalta has provided consultant mentor services to the NYCSCA through its Technical Assistance Program (TAP) since 2014. As part of this program, Citnalta provides one-on-one mentoring and coaching sessions on an individualized basis for the TAP participants.
Surety Completion Work. Citnalta’s solid reputation with public agency owners has made Citnalta the go-to general contractor and/or construction manager after another contractor has defaulted on a project. Citnalta works with sureties to ensure the project is completed to the owner’s satisfaction and in compliance with the original contract documents.
