We worked closely with the client to ensure local employment was maximized and we are proud to say that we only brought in our Superintendent to manage the project and all own forces work was performed by local workers. We have stayed in touch with these workers and are employing them on other projects we have in the area as well as helping them with continued education in the construction field.
