New York, NY (PRWEB) July 03, 2012
David Perecman and the New York construction accident lawyers at The Perecman Firm applaud the construction workers who contributed to the construction of 4 World Trade Center.
Last week, the final steel beam was lifted 977 feet to the top of the building. The 72-story structure is the first building completed on the WTC site since 9/11.
More than 1000 construction workers participated in the “Topping Out Ceremony,” according to The Wall Street Journal (6/25/2012).
According to the WSJ, the newly constructed building will have more than 2.3 million square feet available for commercial offices. New York construction accident lawyers at The Perecman Firm understand it is scheduled to open in Fall 2013.
"The construction workers made an invaluable contribution to one of the greatest skylines in the world and to the New York economy as a whole," said construction accident lawyer Perecman, chairman of the Labor Law committee for the New York State Trial Lawyers Association and lecturer on construction accident law. “And they took on this enormous responsibility despite the fact that construction ranks among the most hazardous industries in the United States.”
According to Mayor Michael Bloomberg, 152 people were injured in New York construction accidents in 2011 and five workers suffered construction-related deaths.
