New York City has two local ironworkers unions: Local 40 for structural steel and Local 580 for ornamental steel, consisting of curtain walls, storefronts, stairs, and the like. The latter is housed in an 18,000 s.f. conversion of a warehouse and auto body shop in Long Island City by Daniel Goldner Architects of New York. Given the nature of the client, it was natural for the building to act as a display for the union's abilities and to likewise inspire the apprentices in the three-year training program.
