Lee University is a private university in Cleveland, Tennessee, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It is consistently ranked in the “Top Tier” in the South by U.S. News & World Report, and is also ranked by Princeton Review’s “Best Colleges.” The University’s success has led to significant growth in academic programs and student enrollment, and the associated need to renovate existing campus facilities. University officials turned to Lee Company for the complete design-build Mechanical and Plumbing work needed to renovate the Deacon Jones Dining Hall, housed in a century-old building.
