The construction superintendent at Carlton Mews, where a construction worker died in a collapse Monday, was handling job safety at 14 construction sites at the same time — four more than the city allows without special permission, according to a New York Daily News story. Yesterday, the DOB issued 10 violations at the site of the collapse, 231 Carlton Avenue. The contractor, Professional Grade Construction, has 24 jobs going on in Brooklyn, Staten Island and Manhattan. Owner Michael Rubinstein is listed as construction superintendent at 14 of those buildings. The city has issued stop work orders at four of the company’s sites in the last year, according to the Daily News. Meanwhile, Council Member Letitia James has asked for help finding relatives to claim the body of Winston Gillette, the 67-year-old construction worker who died in the collapse.
