Innovation Where it Matters: Modular Construction in Healthcare

The Importance of Proper Drainage and Plumbing Maintenance in Commercial Buildings - Lee Company

Lee Company excelled in the Turner Construction partnership, developing a multi-trade racking system for Ascension Saint Thomas. Prefabricated modular racks streamlined installation, cutting labor, enhancing safety, and speeding schedules. A remarkable achievement with 75 team members across floors, an elevator tower, and extensive project scope.

Customer Goals:

  • Expand and modernize the hospital’s surgical delivery wing with 20 new ORs and support services.
  • Relocate all existing services, including operating and pre-operating spaces, post-anesthesia care units, and sterile processing rooms.
  • Keep existing hospital operational during the demolition and site modifications, reducing impact to patients and staff.


  • Lee Company partnered with Turner Construction and Gresham Smith (architect) to provide mechanical and plumbing services as a Design-Assist partner.
  • BIM technology and a pre-fabrication facility was used to provide multi-trade racks.


  • On-time delivery of a large and complex project with no impact to patient care for more than 16 months of construction.
  • This process minimized site labor, decreased potential safety incidents, and reduced on-site schedule durations – a win-win-win!
