The LMCCC will score the participating work sites
The Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center (LMCCC) is partnering with the New York Building Congress (NYBC) to implement its Construction for a Livable City program. The program was established to recognize construction projects that help improve quality of life during construction projects. The voluntary program encourages project managers to meet standards for:
- Operations and safety
- Environmental impact
- Image and design
- Community relations
In Lower Manhattan, the LMCCC is collaborating with the NYBC and Alliance for Downtown New York to help construction sites achieve the Livable City standards, as specified on a downloadable checklist. The LMCCC will monitor the participating work sites and issue scores based on checklist criteria.
In addition to local gratitude, projects that exceed the Livable City standards will earn Worksite Achievement Awards, and will be recognized on the LMCCC’s website, www.lowermanhattan.info.
“Many of the construction sites in Lower Manhattan already are meeting the standards for the Construction for a Livable City program,” said LMCCC Executive Director Bob Harvey. “This program will serve as additional incentive to keep work sites clean, safe, and in good repair. Likewise, it will publicly commend projects and developers that are committed to environmental and community responsibility. This is another way to reward developers who are good neighbors.”
