Fortune and Fame!

January 26, 2015

We could tell you that Lee Company leads the industry in adapting the latest technology to help our customers. But, fortunately, we don’t need to brag about ourselves. Fortune magazine is doing it for us!

In a recent Fortune article on wearable technology, Lee Company is cited – right at the start – as a firm that has figured out how our seasoned professionals can be “on site” with new technicians via safety glasses that are equipped with Bluetooth technology, a camera, microphone, speaker and flash drive. These glasses allow newer workers to climb up on a roof to inspect a mechanical system, and show Lee Company veterans back at the office what’s happening. With a clear picture of the situation, the veterans can then mentor the newer professionals, offering both input and guidance on next steps.

As an added bonus, the technology also allows us to give customers a firsthand look at mechanical issues and solutions – without asking them to climb a ladder.

Given the positive results of our pilot program, Lee Company President Richard Perko told Fortune we’ll be investing in additional pairs of the high-tech safety glasses.

Technology powered service industry platform created by Lee Company.And there’s more …

The smart safety glasses are only one aspect of Insight, Lee Company’s comprehensive technology platform. The industry-leading Insight package also includes GPS, geo-fencing, TechLink field mobility tools and our Digital Sound Technology (DST). DST provides ultrasound diagnostics that deliver invaluable “Insight” for trouble shooting, scheduled maintenance and predictive maintenance.

Put it all together, and Lee Company offers by far the industry’s best technology package – and we’re always working to enhance it. Why the focus on continual improvement? Because it’s our good fortune to serve our customers. We never forget that and we never stop improving. At Lee Company, we give life to facilities.

Contractor Magazine’s 2011 Design/Build Award Goes to Lee Company

December 27, 2013

Lee Company’s Alliance Health Center Central Energy Plant project has won Contracting Business Magazine’s 2011 Design/Build award.

Details on the award and project were featured in an article in the October 2011 issue of Contracting Business Magazine.

Following is an excerpt from the article:

Alliance Health Center, located in Meridian, MS, is a six-story facility is owned and operated by Psychiatric Solutions, Inc. PSI is the largest operator of owned freestanding psychiatric inpatient facilities with approximately 11,000 beds in 32 states.

The central energy plant’s (CEP’s) existing equipment had far exceeded its life expectancy. As a result, the plant was terribly inefficient, in danger of critical systems failure, and required constant attention by the facility maintenance staff.

PSI approached Lee Company to provide a complete turnkey Design/Build project to upgrade their CEP. In turn, Lee Company partnered with three local contractors to oversee the required electrical, fire sprinkler, and general trades work.

A major challenge Lee Company faced was in keeping the facility operational throughout the renovation process. This was achieved by working countless hours of off-peak shifts, constant communication with the facility’s staff, and diligent planning. Installation time and shutdowns were minimized through prefabricated, modular piping assemblies that were built at Lee Company’s manufacturing facility in Nashville, TN. With the prefabrication method, the piping would be shipped to arrive on site just in time for installation, thus eliminating the need to store materials on site.

Lee Company replaced the existing water-cooled chillers with two 300 ton air-cooled chillers, and installed two new boilers of 110 BHP each, two new gas-fired domestic water heaters, and a new storage tank.
As a result of the newly installed equipment, the owner gained a reliable and more efficient mechanical system. Lee Company also provided energy calculations to predict the utility cost savings associated with the new, more efficient equipment.

The energy study was based on comparing a year of monthly energy bills (electric and natural gas) to a computer-generated energy model of the proposed new central plant equipment.

The study revealed that the potential energy savings could be as high as $102,000 per year.
