Our History Structural Integrity, It's Part of Our Story.

Today, we’re known as one of New York’s premier builders, having completed over $6.5 billion worth of construction. But where did it all begin? Here's our company story.

Our History, Our Company Story

Whether you see the Christa sign in front of a housing complex, on a college or hospital campus, or in front of a major athletic stadium, our goal is always the same – to build value for our clients, the facility’s end users and the communities these buildings will serve.

That’s been the way since 1982. Today, Christa is known as one of New York’s premier builders, having completed over $6.5 billion worth of construction.  Our experience in general professional construction supports our abilities on construction management projects with current costs and labor rates at our fingertips. Our estimates are much more accurate because of our hands-on experience.

Working with our sister company, Christa Development Corporation, we can offer our clients comprehensive solutions, including innovative financing alternatives that support the immediate viability and future success of the project.

In 2020, David Christa, Founder, restructured the company to share management roles with his top management team – a group that boasts over 300 years of combined construction experience. This corporate structure was designed to give our clients “executive-level” involvement in every project we undertake. In addition, our clients are further assured that their facilities will be completed according to their expectations…on time and within budget.

In 2008 David sold the K-12 CM Division to its employees, forming a new employee-owned company.

Although there have been changes over the years, one thing has remained constant, Christa’s philosophy…Client Satisfaction through Quality, Service, and Value. It is this philosophy that has formed the basis of Christa’s continued success.
