We are all familiar with the old proverb “It takes a village…” but in this case, it takes union craftsmanship to build that village!
USC Village is a 1.5 million square foot, $700 million, 6 building residence and dormitory project – the largest project in campus history. The University had their pick of contractors for this large, high-profile job but understood early on that to get the best craftsmanship as well as stay on-time and on-budget, they had to go union. Morrow-Meadows, the electrical contractor on the job, and IBEW Local 11 have had a huge hand in the 5,000 workers and 1.7 million man-hours that have been put into making this project a success.
Not only does the NECA/IBEW Powering America Team show up to do the work, they consistently provide resolutions, never cutting corners. According to the University, craftsmanship has gotten better and better as a result. USC wanted the best and the best is what they are getting. USC Village is on-time and on-budget to open to welcome students for the 2017 Fall semester.
