Nicolson & Hall Corp. on Ganson Street a 1,099,000-pound boiler for ArcelorMittal, which will make steam at its plant. There are 30 boilermakers working on the $2 million project, which will be shipped by lake freighter.

A Wheatfield developer has two new projects under its belt.

Calamar Construction cut the ribbon on a $10 million senior housing complex on Weiss Avenue in Orchard Park this month. Eagle Crest Senior Village has 90 one- and two-bedroom units from residents ages 60 and over.

Calamar also finished the Tuscarora Indian Nation House, a 38,000-square-foot multi-use wood frame building. It will primarily be used as a medical and community center on the Tuscarora Indian Nation. Calamar worked in conjunction with URS Corp. and the Tuscarora Indian Nation on the project.
