The Voice of an Industry

For over eighty years, The Associated General Contractors of New York State, LLC (AGC NYS) has been the leading voice for the state’s building and heavy highway construction industry. And in a time of tight budgets for key infrastructure such as roads and bridges, the role of the association is more critical than ever.

Cold Weather Construction

Across North America, cargo shorts, Capri pants and flip-flops are relegated to the back of the closet, with parkas, sweaters and boots taking their place. And just as we winterize our bodies and our cars with warm clothes and snow tires, we do much the same to our houses in preparation for the cold months ahead, from cleaning out gutters to sealing cracks around windows and doors, wrapping pipes with insulation, replacing the furnace filter, draining water from the outside faucet and – if there is a fireplace or woodstove – stocking up on firewood. And those who fail to prepare often pay the price with drafts and high heating costs or, even worse, mould, moisture damage or frozen pipes.
