Thank you!
To all employers who requested and were dispatched MITA apprentices to their public works projects. Check out the Frazier Masonry team photo with a stunning view of the skyline near the San Diego Airport and Old Glory. The project's a massive 2 million square-foot structure which will house 12 rental car companies and will include a customer service building, a quick-turn-around car prep facility, and a 5,000 car ready/return area. It's part of San Diego Airport's long-range plan to reduce airport traffic congestion and bring passengers closer to Interstate 5 and commuter rail lines.
