know how to get the job done without interrupting or compromising ongoing operations.

was keeping dust and noise to a minimum. This O.R. West Wing renovation project was completed on schedule and did not disrupt the critical daily activities
of the hospital. In fact, union professionals completed this project with no complaints, despite having to transport all construction materials through highly
