Congratulations to the Lee Company team who worked on the Bonaroo Music and Arts Festival project! Their outstanding work has been recognized by the Greater Tennessee Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) with a Merit Award in the Mechanical Commercial/Institutional under $2 million division. The project also received an Award of Excellence from the North Alabama Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC).
If you’ve ever attended the annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, TN, you know it’s a fantastic event, covering four days and attracting more than 80,000 attendees from all over the world. You also know that there have never been any permanent restrooms for those 80,000 people.
Superfly, the production house for the festival, wanted to build two permanent restroom facilities before the 2016 festival kicked off. General contractor Boyce Ballard reached out to Lee Company in February 2016 to see if it was even possible to do the HVAC and plumbing by June.
Lee Company made it happen, with a combined effort that included our pre-construction, fabrication, engineering and operations teams. When all was said and done, the new bathrooms were ready for the festival and opened to “standing ovations” from fans, musicians and the media! No wonder this entire Lee Company team is flushed with success.
