Pearson Construction was involved in the erection of a 9/11 Memorial in Benton Harbor, MI. The memorial itself contained a piece of steel from the World Trade Center as its focal point. Imperial Power Services donated the crane required for the work and Lifting Gear Hire donated the rigging. Imperial Power Services also provided a small crew of Local 324 and Local 150 Operating Engineers to execute the work alongside the Local 292 Ironworkers. Each member of the crew selflessly donated their time to the effort.
