Being Proactive 

As general contractors, it is our job  to remain proactive with regards to safety on the job site, remembering always that the well-being of everyone involved in the project is in our hands. 

An example of this occurred recently at The Waldorf School in Bloomfield, a city-designated historic landmark from the late 1800s that was converted into a school/daycare facility. Landau was hired to do renovations which included the removal of a three-story brick chimney. Before construction began, the local EMS was invited to tour the site in order to become familiar with the building and the layout.  By touring the facility, the local fire department and EMS services became familiar with the site which enabled them to develop a plan on how to reach employees quickly and what equipment they would need on hand. 

Similar precautions were taken at the Wheeling Hospital Continuous Care Center. As the foundation was constructed, crawl spaces were left for the electricians and plumbers to eventually install their equipment. Landau arranged for the EMS to visit the site and understand the situation in case of an emergency. 

By taking the time to assess safety issues before the start of construction and getting the right people involved at the outset, the safety and productivity of everyone on the job is enhanced.

Golf Outing

Over the years, we have been very fortunate to work with wonderful clients, architects, and subcontractors. One of these clients is the Allegheny Country Club, where our project was the winner of the 2016 MBA Best in Craftsmanship Award. The project was both challenging and rewarding, and as a way to show our gratitude and to benefit a worthwhile charity, the Passavant Hospital Foundation, the country club worked with us to plan a golf outing on their prestigious course. All donations, raffle proceeds, and 50/50 proceeds benefited the good works of the Foundation.  It was a great way to say thank you, especially to those who worked so hard at the club, while donating to a wonderful local organization. See all the pictures from the event on our Facebook page.

The afternoon began with a light lunch and a shotgun start. Thanks to the impeccable organization of the country club, the entire afternoon ran smoothly, providing the guests with beverages and snacks throughout their day on the course. Heavy hors d'oeuvres and cocktails were served afterwards, and the Passavant Hospital Foundation's Anthony Savannah and Fay Morgan were present to thank everyone for their generosity.  
We want to thank Allegheny Country Club for their guidance and organization throughout each step of the event, from planning to execution, which allowed the event to run seamlessly. A special thank you to First National Bank, M&J Electrical Contracting, and T.A.Robinson Asphalt Paving Inc., for generously sponsoring the food, bar, and on-course beverages. We truly appreciate your support!
