Sunnyside scaffolding failure leads to contractor being hit with violations
The scaffolding that malfunctioned on Monday in Sunnyside leaving a worker dangling for dear life was not sanctioned, the Daily News has learned.
The incident underscores a dark underbelly within the construction trade, a Queens lawmaker said Thursday.
The city Department of Buildings issued a partial stop-work order at the 45th St. construction site and is investigating what caused the scaffolding to collapse, officials said.
Elmhurst contractor Prestige Construction, which was doing facade work on the six-story apartment building, was hit with two violations for Monday’s incident.
