But, our on-going conversations with the NYC Department of Heath and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) provides us with an excellent frame of reference to guide building owners to a safe road; the road to no violations." Steven believes that there are three goals necessary for quality control for domestic water and HVAC water systems: educate the customer to our innovative way of dealing with compliance, communicate clearly and candidly, and respond AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.” Steven is a member of the Queens Chamber of Commerce and Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), where he is active in efforts to educate a number of key executives within the NYC Metro Area.
