Center For Damage Prevention

Dig Safely New York, Inc. along with QPK Architects and Granger Construction designed and executed the construction of this space to meet the organizations current and future needs. Both organizations took a leap of faith to achieve something that no one else in the country has attempted—intentionally designing an indoor space in which a mini excavator and other mechanized equipment can operate. This space will provide a controlled environment for excavators and industry professionals to complete hands-on training during the off-season months, thus furthering educational opportunities and damage prevention.
