Commercial Construction workers to boycott NY mosque

Some union commercial construction workers say they will refuse to help build an Islamic mosque and cultural centre planned for Lower Manhattan.

One a website for the building trades, a blog has started what is called the 9-11 Hard Hat Pledge, encouraging union and non-union tradesmen to refuse work at the site near Ground Zero. The mosque would be two blocks from Ground Zero.

The planned 13-story construction project has exploded into a national debate after President Barack Obama recently appeared to offer support for the project.

Some construction workers say, politics and personal feelings aside, jobs are hard to come by and some of them just can’t afford to turn down work.

The Building Trades Employers’ Association has not yet taken a formal position on the project or a potential boycott by union workers.

Military Construction Regulations

Military construction requires a vast knowledge of regulations and guidelines, much more than typical commercial construction. Having worked on numerous military bases and facilities, we provide the experience needed to avoid potential issues and obstacles.

Construction is much more than erecting buildings and structures, it is understanding the needs and regulations of your client. Military projects and scrutinized not once but twice, meeting local, state and federal code and the high standards of the military.

Professionalism through experience, that’s West Constructors!

Government Construction Projects and Technology

A government construction project and technology work hand in hand. Without the Lazer Devices, GPS, and of course the PC, we could not work competitively in today’s competitive industry.

 As technology continues to move at a rapid pace, we struggle to stay close to the next cool device available. The issue with new technology is cost and most of the time the “Next Best Thing” is quite pricey and out of our budget.

 I am fortunate enough to have learned my lesson early and smart enough to avoid repeating some mistakes. One thing I learned about computers, mobile devices and all those “Internet Ready” devices are; buy quality, take care of it, keep current virus protection enabled and service it regularly.

 I also have the good fortune to know Tim Grier, owner of CET, Computer Magician. When it comes to computer repair for Mooresville, Tim is always on my speed dial and I keep a stack of his business cards handy for my friends. Tim provides great service and at a very reasonable price, but what I like is he’s an honest man and will not waste your money on a PC not worth fixing. 

To me, technology seems to move at light speed, a pace I find way too fast. I can keep up to date with my personal devices and not have to purchase new items every year, by taking care of my equipment and calling on good professional people.
