Yesterday, the NYC Council voted in favor of Intro 2263, that re-defined a “Major Building” in the NYC Building Code, to any building that is 7 stories or 75’ tall. This new law will take effect in November 2024. We applaud the Council, and compliment DOB Commissioner LaRocca, for supporting this bill that will truly and unequivocally, save construction workers lives! Our President, Peter Amato, testified before the Council on September 13, 2021 in full support of this game changing law that will require safety oversight on low-rise buildings.

Today is the day to thank our Veterans!

Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served. We celebrate and honor America’s Veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for our freedom.

Thanks to all of our Veterans who work for us, especially those who have graduated from our Veterans Apprenticeship Program!
