2020 – Construction Goes on Amid COVID-19 Global Pandemic

The year 2020 and COVID-19 have brought on many new challenges to I&Y Construction that we did not have to worry about in past years.  COVID-19 has forced us to implement new job site safety procedures and make travel adjustments to help keep our employees safe and healthy while at work.

Luckily, with the exception of a governmental shut-down early on in the spring, I &Y Construction has been able to continue to work throughout the spring and summer.  In fact, we have had one of our busiest installation seasons to date and we are currently booked through the end of the year.

Two additions to the field construction team this year include Ty Douglas and Steven Kline.  Both young men come to us with previous construction experience and both have been integral parts of our team this season helping us complete our jobs on schedule.

Our field team usually works four ten+ hour days every week, often starting early in the morning.  It is extremely rare that they are on site after dark, and so they are not usually around when the lights get turned on and the light levels are tested.  However, this spring, we completed a job at Western Wayne HS in Lake Ariel, PA and they all got to see the finished project.  When our senior foreman Greg Peace got to see the lights on, he jokingly said “Wow! That’s what they look like when we’re done!”  Greg has been with us for over 200+ installations.  What is even funnier is that Steven got to see the lights illuminated on his very first job.  Needless to say, everyone was impressed with their work!

Some of our completed 2020 jobs are:

  1. Western Wayne HS Stadium
  2. East Pennsboro HS Soccer
  3. Palmyra HS Athletic Fields
  4. PSU Harrisburg Soccer
  5. Carlisle HS Football Stadium
