May this building remind us not only of the heroes and victims of 9/11,but also of the heroic construction workers who built it.
New York, New York (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
New York construction accident lawyer David Perecman wants to congratulate all the One World Trade Center construction workers. On May 2, a crane hoisted the flag-draped spire to the top of the building. Ironworkers will permanently attach it to the roof at a later date, reported ABC News (5.2.13).
“Construction on the new World Trade Center skyscraper began in 2006 and now this proud and symbolic building is almost complete,” said Perecman. “It’s an incredible achievement and an instant New York City landmark.”
The 408-foot spire will cap the building at 1,776 feet, making it the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, said ABC News.
“The healing of the nation continues with this rebuilding. It’s been a long road and, finally, this construction is almost at an end. May this building remind us not only of the heroes and victims of 9/11,but also of the heroic construction workers who built it,” said Perecman. “It takes a mentally and physically strong person to be a construction worker.”
According to Bureau of Labor Statistics fatality records, construction is one of the ten most dangerous jobs in America. What makes it so dangerous is that the work is often done from heights.
“Congratulations to all the construction workers involved in this project who have dedicated themselves to its completion,” said Perecman.
