Residential structures incorporate more than just iron, metal, glass and wood. They provide comfort, security and safety for families, enhance our lives and nurture a community.
The creation of a quality residential dwelling depends on the ability to deliver resources and provide the superior quality you and your customers demand, without inflating the budget or delaying move-in day.
The union construction industry excels at meeting any residential building or renovation requirements. That's because union contractors and craftsmen bring decades of experience and practical understanding of the special needs inherent in residential projects. And that includes working with inspectors and local municipalities so that local ordinances are met. Projects are completed with the most highly trained craftsmen who are safety conscience and sensitive to curbing material waste, practices that help keep costs down and construction on schedule.
Lincoln at North Shore
The experience and reliability of union craftsmen contributed to the success of this project through value engineering, efficiencies and the ability of the general contractor to coordinate a complicated construction project to finish on budget and ahead of schedule. Before creating the 232-apartment facility, the challenge of building a residential structure along an active Allegheny River needed to be addressed. More than 40,000 cubic yards of fill was imported to the site to raise it above the 100-year flood elevation point. And, more than 800 linear feet of concrete retaining wall was added. A 331-space parking garage stands on strip footers with double T's that are pre-topped. The structure also includes perimeter infills and fills over inverted T's and hydrozo sealer.
"Without the assistance of our general contractor and major subcontractors from design development through construction, the Lincoln at North Shore may not have been developed. Today, it is recognized as the most successful apartment community in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area."

Concordia Lutheran Homes
Three successful projects, all steered and completed by union construction professionals, provide comforting grounds and inviting facade work for this retirement community that includes skilled, personal care and residence facilities on one campus. Structural steel framing, concrete floors over steel joists, masonry bracing and metal metal stud partition walls provide safety, security and functional living space over 113,600-, 135,000- and 154,000-square-foot projects. Early involvement in the design of these projects not only controlled costs, but also aided in anticipating and overcoming a variety of challenges, from project changes by the owner (including building sizes, window designs and ductwork shaft relocation), to unfavorable weather conditions, undercut and lean fill adjustments.
