Gerald R. Sigal, Founder and President

Gerry Sigal's career spans more than 50 years, starting with a 17-year tenure with Tishman Realty Construction Company of New York and culminating with the establishment of his own general contracting company "SIGAL Construction Corporation" in 1977.

Forged by his own matriculation from field supervision to all facets of project management, Gerry's philosophy is centered on the belief that service, integrity, and respect are vital components in providing quality construction services for the commercial real estate market; both public and private sectors. His personal philosophy is the foundation of SIGAL's corporate culture and extends to its relationships with clients, employees, subcontractors, and vendors. Resonating with all members of the SIGAL Team, this shared mindset has fostered the growth of long-term client relationships, management staff, and the corporation itself into one of Washington's premier commercial construction companies. Gerry's own project management experience includes high-profile projects such as Philadelphia's Centre Square Complex and New York's World Trade Center and Madison Square Garden office complexes.
