Steve Spiewak, Owner and President of Crisak, Incorporated, first went into business back in 1976 under the name of Precision Carpentry where he built custom decks throughout the Potomac, MD area. He did this with a hammer in hand. After six years of deck building he began to build custom single family homes, and opened up a new company in 1982, Precision Builders. In 1988 Steve finally had an opportunity to try commercial construction. He was awarded a small tenant project in Springfield Mall, and from that point on, he never looked back.
In 1989, Steve established Crisak, Incorporated, a combination of the first name of his young daughter at the time “Cristina”, and their last name “Spiewak”. Steve’s reputation for hard work and integrity quickly spread throughout the retail industry. Within five years Steve had an office in Houston, Texas, an office in Puerto Rico, and his main office in McLean, Virginia. He was building shopping centers and retail stores in twenty-nine states, and Puerto Rico. During this time Steve also acquired his own precast, and redi-mix concrete plant to support his operations in Puerto Rico, and to work with Walmart, Sam’s Club, and Pep Boy’s in expanding their stores from the continental United States into and throughout Puerto Rico and other Caribbean Islands.
In 2003, after the birth of his and his wife Sonya’s son Nick, Steve decided he wanted to spend more time at home, so he sold his businesses in Puerto Rico, and relocated his McLean office to Purcellville, VA, where he would concentrate solely on growing in the Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. metropolitan area markets.
Today, Crisak, Incorporated, operates as a general contractor specializing in turn-key commercial construction services serving private and corporate customers in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Washington DC. Crisak provides preconstruction, general contracting, and design build services to its customers. Crisak specializes in big box retail, corporate office interior, mixed-use shopping center, façade renovation, financial, storage, warehousing, educational, places of worship, and healthcare projects. Crisak has developed a reputation for outstanding customer service with commitment to completing projects on time and within budget.
Steve still takes a hands-on approach to every project. His motto: “Do it, do it right, do it right now”. Steve prides himself on his “team of builders.” All project superintendents have ten plus years of experience, most many more, and all project managers have spent time in the field “kicking dirt” before working from the office. They understand construction processes both from the field and office.
