The union construction industry is frequently tapped for healthcare projects because union contractors and craftsmen excel at meeting any building or renovation requirements. Safety, staying on time and within budget, and staffing a site with the highest-skilled craftsmen are top priorities. And, union professionals know how to get the job done without interrupting or compromising ongoing operations.
