Prevailing Wage


Unionized contractors in NYS are extensively trained and skilled. Prevailing wage laws ensure a dependable work force with a higher standard of construction work, as well as a proper standard of living for the workers themselves.



Project Labor Agreements


PLAs are the foundation of a smooth construction project, and they are often utilized by both public and private owners to ensure complex projects are completed on-time and on-budget.



Scaffold Law


New York's Scaffold Law provides a unique statue that protects men and women working at distinct height. It is our job to create and maintain a safe work environment for them.



Design Build


Design Build is used for extensive, intricate projects. PLAs are typically, at the very least, considered before contracts are awarded.
