Construction contractors in Colly Island, Queens, got a super-superior rating from the city of Brooklyn on Tuesday after a review of the city’s inspection report, which found the city had not performed a thorough inspection of the company’s operations.
The city has been criticized in the past for not inspecting its contractors’ operations after a series of deaths, and the company that works for Coney island, CME Group, is now under scrutiny by authorities after its subcontractors were linked to the deaths of three workers at a warehouse.
The city said it had hired a firm to conduct an independent audit of CME’s operations after the death of Michael Kallenbaum, 37, and James McManus, 43, in April.
In a statement, CPE said it was disappointed with the city inspection report.
The company has been a strong partner in the city and has been proactive in responding to public concerns, the company said.”CME is committed to ensuring that its subcontracting practices and processes are consistent with the highest standards of good business practices,” the company added.CME Group was awarded the super-Superior rating for two years in a row in March and June 2018.
The company, which provides construction work to the New York City subway system, has also been awarded five consecutive Super-Super-Super Super-Sonic Awards.
