The worker struck by a steel beam at the Uniland Development Co. construction site on Delaware Avenue remained hospitalized and is expected to make a full recovery, the company announced Tuesday in a prepared statement.

The worker, identified as an employee of Seneca Steel Erectors, Inc., was injured around 8:15 a.m. Tuesday while unloading steel beams at the construction site.

The employee’s family has requested that his name not be released.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was notified.

“It appears to be an unfortunate accident and we are assisting OSHA with the investigation to determine how it happened,” said Michael Montante, Uniland vice president.

Construction of the 12-story complex continues.

The 350,000-square-foot structure will include upscale office space, a national-brand hotel, ground-floor retail and an attached parking garage.

It will serve as the new world headquarters for Delaware North Companies by the fall of 2015.
