The president of K Restoration and Roofing Corporation, Barry Grummer oversees the company’s more than 20 active projects and over $15 million in annual sales. A longtime restoration and roofing professional, Barry Grummer is also a member of the New York City Special Riggers Association (NYCSRA).
The NYCSRA was created in response to pending legislative changes to the special rigger’s license. With dozens of member companies, the NYCSRA serves as an advocacy group and resource to keep its members and the city’s general population safe through update notifications from OSHA and the New York City Department of Building.
Open to licensed special rigger organizations and individuals who perform construction and restoration projects on the city’s skyscrapers from suspended scaffolds, the NYCSRA has established itself as a significant presence in the industry. For instance, it has testified before the NYC Council Committee on Housing and Buildings hearing and assembled a panel of experts from the Department of Building for a NYCSRA meeting.
To become a member of the NYCSRA, interested parties need to fill out an online application to indicate the company’s specialty, any notable projects, how its business is divided, and whether or not it owns or rents its equipment. Additionally, the nonprofit association is open to both union and non-union organizations.
