MISSISSIPPI STATE BCS STUDENTS VISIT NEW YORK
Twenty-one Mississippi State students in their third-year of study in the Building Construction Science program recently took a weeklong field trip to New York, N.Y., with Professor Tom Leathem. Leathem was lucky to have help in coordinating site visits from Barry Lipsky, an MSU Alumnus, who owns Lipsky Construction Company Inc. in Bayport, N.Y., and is a member of the program’s advisory council. Barry’s efforts were a major contributor to the success of this trip. The students enjoyed a tour of some of New York City's biggest construction project including the new freedom tower.
"As the company has adapted over the years, Lipsky Enterprises has succeeded by remaining consistent in its focus on listening and responding to and collaborating with associates, clients and peers while developing long-lasting relationships, (Barry) Lipsky says. Historically, the company has worked in commercial and school construction, but in the past five years it expanded its market by completing several high-end residential projects in the Hamptons."
"Already, the company has worked on more than 500 homes from New York City to the east end of Long Island. Lipsky says those recovery projects are about more than simply restoring the homes: it’s about getting emergency heat, hot water and electric working for the residents."
