Located in the hip and trendy neighborhood of East Nashville is Edgefield Church, a historic three-story building still standing thanks to its deep roots on the corner of the block and in the community. Unlike school or company building jobs, Lee Company’s HVAC and mechanical systems remodel for Edgefield Church was unorthodox. The Lee Company team recommended a complete overhaul of the system, but that entailed large HVAC and mechanical equipment that weighed a thousand pounds per unit, and installing the new units and ductwork would prove to be tight in many places. They were also to be assembled in places that were difficult to reach, including the three-story attic and the depths of the basement.
