La Crosse Center board gets tour of construction



The $42-million makeover of the La Crosse Center is well underway with the ongoing demolition of the North Hall and construction of a second ballroom on the west side of the building. 

Monday, the construction team gave members of the La Crosse Center Board a tour of areas, such as the ballroom site on the west side of the building, facing the river.   

That new ballroom is being built over a closed portion of Front Street. 

The east entrance to the center will be enlarged to include a glassed-in lobby.   

Construction on the Center expansion is a little ahead of schedule, according to the builders. 

The North Hall exhibition center is being torn down now and will be rebuilt before February. 

The electronic billboard along 2nd Street, which advertised upcoming shows, was taken apart last week.

    Construction site safety is heavily regulated, and skirting the rules could result in significant fines. Should an accident occur on-site, you may be on the hook for medical bills and property damage…..not to mention a potentially significant loss of business reputation. Yikes, right? In order to mitigate this from happening to you and your company, try conducting regular safety training sessions, safety audits, and compliance audits throughout the entire lifecycle of the project. Because of Local Law 196 of 2017, New York City now requires construction workers at most major worksites in the five boroughs to receive at least 30 hours of Site Safety Training (SST) by December 1, 2019. https://www.safetycardtracker.com/ allows employees to download and authenticate training documentation easily
