Ironworkers

In the late 1880s, an abrupt change of steel replacing wood and stone in structural materials brought about a demand for a new type of worker – ironworkers. Ironworkers work on the construction of industrial, commercial, and large residential buildings, as well as on towers, bridges, stadiums and prefabricated metal buildings. They erect and install pre-cast beams, columns and panels in accordance with engineered drawings.

The final result is nothing short of remarkable and field rework was minimal. A special thanks to the managers, engineers and designers, whose attention to safety, cleanliness, quality of work, and perception to detail, was beyond reproach.
