Interest in non-union alternatives in construction has fueled the growth of CitiStructure, a general contractor and construction management company founded in 2001. Services include cost estimating, project management and value engineering. Since the downturn, developers have been looking for lower-cost construction companies, and CitiStructure has come through, without sacrificing quality. The company is also recognized as a minority owned business. To provide even more value for clients, the company has added new trades such as carpentry, concrete, demolition and masonry to its repertoire.
