PA Residential Wage Rate Update

The Bureau of Labor Law Compliance has updated their wage rate determination criteria for residential projects. This may be good news for your next project since residential rates are lower than commercial. If you haven’t requested your wage rate determination yet, consider the following:

  • Is your project residential in nature?
  • Is your project a single-family home or apartment building of no more than 4 stories in height?

For example: Town or Row Houses, Apartment Buildings (four stories or less), Single Family Houses, Mobile-home developments, Multi-family houses, and residential-type student housing (other than apartment buildings more than four stories or dormitories)

If so, contact the Bureau of Labor Law Compliance at 1-800-932-0665.  They will help you determine if your project qualifies for residential rates.
