The Greater Rochester International Airport (GRIA) Revitalization project is well underway, passing the halfway point on the road to a completion date this October. This project contains 15 separate projects totaling $79 million. Ten projects are currently underway, and five are already completed.
The week of May 7 – 11 was an important one for safety in construction. Across the industry, companies held events as part of the annual Construction Safety Week; at the same time, OSHA – with support from the National Safety Council and dozens of other groups – promoted National Fall Safety Stand-Down Week to encourage employers to address fall protection and safety.
With work progressing on Rochester General Hospital’s future Critical Care Center, one of LeChase’s contacts at the hospital suggested a way to give employees and the public a closer look at what it’s like on the project site. That led to an upcoming video: “A Day in the Life of a Crane Operator.”
LeChase has won the 2018 CX-cellence Award for Innovative Client Experience Strategy in the Compelling Brand Category. This award recognizes LeChase’s Customer Care Program and its endeavor to help the company develop outstanding experiences for its clients.
In May, for the first time, LeChase held a companywide event to welcome its summer interns. Of the 25 interns scheduled to work across the company this summer, 16 were able to attend the event live in Rochester, four attended in person with the North Carolina leadership team and others linked in via broadcast. Those who had not yet started will receive regional welcomes when coming on board.
As a LeChase project engineer in Binghamton, Danyelle Skurski has had the opportunity to work on several projects in her hometown of Roxbury, N.Y., including renovations to a school she once attended. But no project is as personal to her as the local charity car show she organizes each year.
