The work in New York City Public Schools is ramping up with the Cool Schools initiative. LU #3 contractors are getting busy with this work. Pay attention to the core drilling on these jobs as this is work that we do for our installations. Please call the Construction Desk or Area Representative if the work is being done by others. The NYCHA lamp and fixture replacement jobs are plentiful and we need to man these projects and ensure completion in a timely manner.
