Masonry Scores at Yankee Stadium

Members of the construction team building the new Yankee Stadium - HOK Sport, Turner Construction, and Tishman Speyer -- are good at what they do. They recently got a chance to see how good BAC members are at their jobs, and how IMI education and training helps everyone.
On November 7, IMI worked with Del Savio Masonry and Port Morris Tile & Marble to deliver a custom "Yankee Stadium Masonry Day" to the construction site, educating project officials on topics like construction detailing, and letting them try laying brick walls and spreading terrazzo.
"The combination of enlightening lecture and hands-on demonstrations was a perfect blend," says Peter Chorman, Senior Director at Tishman Speyer.

"The broad knowledge base, sense of humor and personal passion of the IMI staff was motivating to us all."

That approach helps everyone, notes Joe Mauro, Vice President of Del Savio. "Managers are under pressure to bring projects in at or below cost," says President Arthur Del Savio, Jr. "Showing them that we have the contractors, craftworkers and materials to ensure that their goal can be fulfilled is of great importance to our industry."
