Congratulations to Blue Cross Blue Shield! The company has been awarded LEED certification for its Nashville office, following a major renovation of its heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. LEED certification is awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council to facilities that demonstrate Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design.
Lee Company is proud to have helped BCBS achieve this environmental and construction success.
The Nashville facility presented a number of interesting challenges for our design and installation teams. For example, BCBS needed to keep its facility open during the renovation, so Lee Company skilled craftsmen worked after-hours to minimize disruptions. We discovered unexpected issues early on that could have been costly later, and successfully addressed them – a real benefit of our design build option. And we completed this project in an extremely aggressive time frame.
The final result is golden – the LEED gold certification. BCBS has a far more efficient HVAC system, employees have increased control over the temperatures in their offices, and Lee Company has successfully completed another outstanding LEED project!
When you’re ready to upgrade your facilities, give us a call. We’re happy to lead the way.
