The end-user of an industrial construction or renovation project expects a facility that offers state-of-the-art mechanics and technology - a solid structure that can retain years of usefulness, with little maintenance. Owners of these facilities demand high-quality work, completed within budget, on schedule and free of accidents.
Partnership with the union construction industry is the proven strategy that meets these goals. That's because union contractors and craftsmen are grounded in delivering the best value for your investment and bringing superior skills, attention to detail and high work standards to each job.
From new construction to retrofit, the finished project will reflect extensive pre-planning and project management, and will be an example of industry excellence.

This project included erecting five buildings - one for a new sludge loading and processing facility, three for the Headworks Odor Control area, and another for the Dewatering Odor Control Building, complete with odor scrubber equipment pads and foundations. Meanwhile, new primary clarifiers, aeration basins and a three-stage odor control system, coupled with associated ductwork, equipment buildings and other structures, were needed. Attaining project success meant strict coordination and scheduling among multiple contractors on site. The use of project milestones kept work at its needed place, while a large pool of highly trained union professionals provided the staffing to complete the project.
"The workers had to skills and knowledge so that complex work could be completed with minimal disruptions to ALCOSANS's ongoing treatment process. Also, the union labor possessed the proper training to complete the job safely."
