The New York City Department of Buildings is allowing Bovis Lend Lease to resume work on the Donald Trump high rise where a construction worker fell 40 stories to his death in January. The contractor will be allowed to work on the first 23 floors of the 42 story building. However, the work that has begun does not involve the use of any cranes or concrete.
The January 14, 2008, death that shut down the construction site involved a worker on the 40th floor helping to pour concrete.
Bovis Lend Lease has added a full-time safety manager to the job site since the death.
