The Kaplan College renovation was previously a Toys R Us building.  This job required an average of 4 employees for four months. In working with this contractor, all employees on the Kaplan College site were trained in safety, participated in a Drug Free work environment, and we were never sited onsite by the contractor’s safety inspectors, or OSHA making it at 100% complete success for both safety and the environment. A&K successfully completed this job on schedule and Kaplan College opened its doors in March 2010.
