Value Delivered

We provided design-assist, mechanical, and plumbing services for a major expansion project. Lean pull planning and aggressive project management were key elements in developing and maintaining the schedule on this project. The new facility also earned a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification.
