Gelberg Signs, a family-owned company based in D.C., has been awarded a $1 million contract to create and install all of the signage at the Nationals new ballpark, set to open in 2008.

The company will be charged with installing more than 3,000 signs, including signs for parking, concessions, luxury boxes and seat numbers.

Gelberg is classified as a Local Small or Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (LSDBE). The city is required to award at least 51 percent of all subcontracting work to such firms.

“We are honored to have been selected as the sign company for DC’s next major landmark,” said Guy Brami, who runs Gelberg Signs along with his brothers, Luc and Neil. “As a family-owned business with a 66-year history in this city, we are pleased that the District has renewed its emphasis on the LSDBE program.”

Gelberg is expected to begin pre-fabrication of the stadium next month and could begin installing the signs by the end of July.
