State Representative Jesse Topper visits I&Y Construction

Last month, I & Y owner Matt  Snyder visited PA State Representative Jesse Topper at his office in Bedford, PA to discuss a proposed house bill that dealt with the Keystone Purchasing Network (KPN) and other cooperative purchasing programs.  I & Y Construction successfully partners with Musco Lighting, the KPN contract holder for sports and athletic field lighting, for many of our sports lighting projects.  Matt was concerned with how the bill was written and how it could have a negative impact on the construction industry and also because it could potentially eliminate the cost savings benefits it provides to the end users.  Matt provided Mr. Topper an example of how using the KPN contract can save the end users significant amounts of money on the installation of sports lighting and other construction projects.  After a successful first meeting, PA State Representative Topper stopped in to our office in New Enterprise, PA for a short visit on Thursday April 4, 2019 to meet the rest of the owners and learn more about our business.  We were honored to have him visit and can’t thank him enough for taking the time to learn more about  I & Y Construction, LLC and better understand how we operate.


I&Y Construction, LLC is in the home stretch of what looks to be another successful construction season.  As of right now, we have completed 12 sports lighting installations this year, and we have several more yet to finish by the end of the year.  Crossing this year’s construction season finish line looks like it might be a little harder than normal.

Inclement weather in 2018 has been terrible, and for any company trying to get work done outdoors, it presents problems. The affect the weather has had on I&Y Construction, LLC is no exception. Our entire installation region from NY to DC has experienced an unprecedented amount of rainfall, making it the wettest construction season we have ever experienced.   The large amounts of rainfall have made many jobs more challenging than usual, and the continued storms and weekly rainfall are starting to take their toll and affect our schedules.

Check out the video footage below from of one of our job sites.  It gives you a good idea of how rain can impact a construction site, create extra work, and potentially delay the completion of a project.                             Play Site Conditions Video 

Fortunately, we were able to complete the job in the video within our original time frame.  However, we do have several projects in progress that remain incomplete simply because we are waiting on site conditions to improve so that we can wrap them up. There is very little we can do now, except to wait for things to dry out. We continue to monitor our job site conditions on a daily basis, and as soon as things improve, I &Y Construction LLC, has a team of dedicated employees ready to go to work.  Our team of installation experts are willing to do whatever is necessary to get these sports lighting projects completed and ready for use in the upcoming seasons.

If you are interested in getting some new sports lighting installed, or want information about upgrading your current system, please contact Matt Snyder and he will help guide you through the process.

I & Y’s New Internet Presence

We’re very excited to reveal our new website!

We’ve worked with many incredible people and organizations over the years, and we’ve built a pretty substantial portfolio of some pretty substantial construction and lighting projects.

However, people outside of our individual projects were never able to really see the other interesting places we’ve been, or check out our full range of capabilities.

With our new responsive website designed and built by JMG Systems, the spectacular results of our hard work will be much more accessible to an even larger audience.

It’s taken years for us to develop the high quality and sound reputation we’ve acquired. And we’re very proud of all the good work we’ve done. So now we’re pleased to be able to improve how we show off our accomplishments to the world.
