We brought students
and MCAA members
“Despite being on the executive board of my school’s MCAA Chapter, I still didn’t fully appreciate what it is actually like to work for a mechanical contractor until this presentation. The “A Day in the Life of Ted” video was an excellent view as to what makes your section of the industry different than a typical building contractor.” That was one student’s reaction to the video at MCAA’s GreatFutures Forum.
The MCAA 2017 GreatFutures Forum was so successful, we made a video about it! See for yourself how students and contractors came together at MCAA’s first-ever career fair.
OSHA recently released interim silica enforcement guidelines for its Compliance Safety and Health Officers (CSHOs). The guidelines, which are attached, may be helpful to you in preparation for OSHA’s enforcement of the standard. Also, MCAA has a bank of silica resources that will help you protect your workers from overexposure and comply with the standard.
While renovating a historic building, Commonwealth Plumbing found that Viega’s double drop elbows were the best solution for accommodating new bathroom sinks in a tight space with limited design options. By using pressed fittings, Commonwealth not only saved time on installation but also avoided soldering in an old building with a lot of wood.
Durr Mechanical Construction and its joint venture partner Megrant recently constructed the largest prefabricated Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) ever built in the U.S. Once built, the 4,000 ton, union-built generator was floated by barge 150 miles down the Hudson River to its destination in Woodbridge, New Jersey, where it is being incorporated into a new combined-cycle power plant. Here is a great video of the HRSG’s journey down the Hudson!
