INSTALL’s mission is to ensure the continued health and prosperity of the North American floorcovering industry, to demonstrate commitment to quality installations and to enhance the industry’s reputation.

INSTALL NYC Labor Management

The New York City Labor-Management Corporation (L-M) was created to promote the use of union contractors and labor and increase our market share.  Our mission is to put more union carpenters to work. The mandate is simple: examine sectors of the market where union contractors and labor are not being utilized, identify the core problems, think of creative solutions to the problems and implement them.

INSTALL NYC is steered by an 8-member labor management committee and is supported by the superior training program of INSTALL National. INSTALL NYC offers an ongoing series of continuing education programs for the architectural and design community in New York City to improve standards for the flooring industry and exceed expectations. INSTALL  NYC’s numerous educational symposia are designed to educate the industry on the latest flooring installation techniques, new products and green innovations. Topics include: Why Floors Fail and Flooring and the LEED Process: An Insider’s View.

INSTALL is a certified continuing education provider for the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the International Facility Management Association (IFMA). All content for its courses is developed by veteran flooring instructors, with an average of 20 years experience. The courses are additionally reviewed and approved by the INSTALL Labor Management Committee for the floor covering industry.

INSTALL NYC works with the New York City District Council of Carpenters Labor Technical College, the training center for the Union. It conducts apprenticeship training for over 1,700 registered apprentices in six New York State Department of Labor-approved apprenticeship programs. The four-year apprenticeship programs include daytime training for each year of their apprenticeship for a total of four weeks per year (160 hours per year of related training). Career-long training and INSTALL certifications are required of every installer.
