Lee Company knew there would be challenges when it got a design-build contract from BG1 to add a five-story tower to an existing water processing plant in Bowling Green, KY. The plant was fully operational. The tower was 80 feet tall, with little access for pipes and ductwork. The cramped working space was incredibly hot. Still, with virtual construction capabilities, an in-house manufacturing facility, and terrific teamwork, Lee Company triumphed. The job was completed on time, with no accidents. The plant is now running at maximum potential – a feat BG1 hadn’t achieved with any other design-build companies.
