Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) are a unique project management tool designed to reduce project cost and improve the mechanism for delivering construction craft labor to a project.  

Seeler Engineering, P.C. and its principal, Tim A. Seeler, P.E. have provided study development, agreement negotiation, and PLA implementation services since 1998, just two years after the Appellate Court of New York ruled that PLAs could be applied to public works projects in New York State. Services have been provided to 27 projects with a total construction cost in excess of $3.3 Billion. The project mix includes both traditional Design/Bid/Build and Design/Build project delivery systems and represents a broad range of public agency infrastructure including:

  • Educational Facilities (Secondary, Community College, University)
  • Transportation (Roads & Bridges, Airport, Rail, Bus, Port/Marina)
  • Public Safety (Jail, Crime Lab, Courthouse)
  • Urban Redevelopment
  • Water and Waste Water Systems

We have worked directly for public agencies or with agency program/construction managers such as Parsons Brinckerhoff, Gilbane, L P Ciminelli, The Pike Company, and LeChase Construction.

Our clients include:

  • The New York State Department of Transportation
  • Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority
  • Monroe County
  • The City of Rochester
  • Monroe Community College
  • Monroe County Water Authority
  • Rochester Joint Schools Construction Board
  • State University of New York - Buffalo
  • State University of New York - Binghamton
  • Niagara County Community College
  • Niagara Falls City School District
  • City of Syracuse
  • Syracuse City School district
  • St. Lawrence County
  • Oswego City School District
  • Allegany County

Seeler Engineering, P.C. has worked closely with clients to carefully develop agreements that achieve maximum economic benefit but to also advance non-economic objectives as well.  Several recent agreements have included provisions designed to increase minority and women work force participation through enhanced apprentice recruitment and training programs, enhanced training for safety and unique construction quality control certifications, and injured worker reemployment ("return to work" programs).

We would be pleased to discuss how this unique construction project tool could help your project.  Contact us.
