QUEENS, N.Y. - Dec. 6, 2017 - PRLog -- Queens would not be the beautiful place it is today without the residential, commercial and industrial buildings that are rehabilitated and created each year.

Each year the Queens Chamber Of Commerce celebrates all types of buildings from new construction to interiors to additions to major corporate projects.

Wednesday night at Terrace in the Park the building industry was highlighted and honored.

The keynote speaker was Rick D. Chandler, P.E. Commissioner at the NYC Department of Buildings.  Chandler updated the crowd of the efforts the City is taking to make the construction process much more streamlined.

The Gala Honoree was Michael Viggiano, Executive Vice President at Skanska USA Civil Northeast, Inc.

Queens Borough President Melina Katz applauded the building industry that is making the borough a thriving place.  She also touted the Chamber of Commerce
for "bringing all the industries together."

Queens Chamber Board Member Henry Kuykendall said,
"The Building Awards are so historic and important to Queens because it shows the commitment to making Queens a premiere location. Construction is an economic indicator that drives vitality to Queens. More importantly construction is indicative  that there are jobs providing opportunities and growth for Queens."
