Derby High School Athletic Facility
Our structural steel erection crew is nearing completion of the J.R. Payden Field House – the result of a $2 million private donation to upgrade the sporting facilities. The new club house will offer views of both the new football and baseball fields and is slated for completion in the fall of 2019.
In December United Steel learned that we had earned the CCIA (Connecticut Construction Industries Association) Community Service award for our commitment to the CCSU Bridge Team and our support of UCONN’s Engineering Department for research they are doing for the DOT. In addition, we received a Safety Recognition Award for Excellence in Construction Safety and Health — what an honor!
