Lee Mechanical was honored to help Greenfield, WI, grow in 2021 with the addition of a new 87,000 sq. ft. Festival Foods store. The location’s grand opening was July 16, 2021.
Located in the former home of Greenfield Target, the new Festival Foods project included complete demolition of the inside of the existing store and a build back with all new electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems that will serve the entire building. The renovated location also includes 37,000 sq. ft of future tenant space.
Festival now boasts over 30 locations in Wisconsin, and the Lee team is no stranger to partnering with the company, having worked on several past Festival Foods projects. Lee professionals were a key component for this build, involved with tasks related to:
- Pipe fitting
- Electrical, including control wiring
At the project’s height, up to 35 Lee team employees were involved in the construction, from the initial removal of original electrical and plumbing to new build and installation. Using advanced Trimble Layout technology, Lee’s team professionals solved specific project issues, such as redesigning all underfloor sanitary and grease waste piping, when the original engineer plans did not correctly reflect these details.
Festival Foods also saved time and money with Lee Mechanical’s prefab capabilities. With an existing building, where multiple trades are all working in the same area simultaneously, Lee was able to prefab systems of the MEP.
The Lee team worked closely with other trades and the general contractor, Rodac Development & Construction.
“We are proud to say we have worked on six different Festival Foods projects now,” stated Ron Morris, Lee Mechanical’s VDC Manager. “It is always a pleasure to work with them as a customer – they are very focused and know exactly what their project needs – and we deliver on time and budget.”
This project illustrates the core pillars of Lee’s expertise, from plumbing, HVAC, electrical or mechanical.
