CoLinx, a manufacturer-owned provider of warehousing and other logistics services that support e-commerce, is one of the main employers in Crossville, Tenn.; the company’s production facility in Crossville is one of the area’s largest buildings. When CoLinx needed to expand the facility, we were awarded the design-build contract for temperature and humidity control.
The job was big, covering 60,000 square feet of production area, and 240,000 square feet of warehousing, and it came with big challenges, including:
- Inclement weather: It rained about every other day throughout the five-month project, wreaking havoc on the schedule and complicating logistics with mud.
- COVID-19: The January – May 2020 schedule was impacted by the pandemic requiring many changes.
CoLinx Expansion Project received the 2020 Eagle Award from the Greater Tennessee Associated Builders and Contractors chapter.
Final results? Very cool.
Our design-build for the temperature and humidity controls at the CoLinx facility was completed on time, on budget, and with no accidents. The work is already proving its worth: CoLinx has the expanded, productive space required to help meet the logistical needs of its customers. CoLinx employees have the comfort and security of knowing they’re working in a well-ventilated area. The owner continues to have one company he knows he can work with – and trust – for innovative, industrial, and mechanical construction.
P.S. CoLinx Expansion Project was one of 5 Lee Company projects honored with a 2020 ABC award – and several of those projects received multiple awards! Altogether, Lee Company took home 9 ABC awards this year. That’s incredible. We greatly appreciate this industry recognition of our dedicated professionals and their work. Thanks to our team and customers. We couldn’t do it without you!
