SUNCREEK RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT - Job Type: Residential Subdivision - Number of Phases: 4 - Total Costs: $13,055,771 - Time Frame: Initial Budgeting 1996 through Final Construction 2000 - Suncreek, located in Plano and Allen, Texas, involved the development of 641 residential single family lots, as well as improvements to Hedgecoxe Road, Alma Road and the construction of the Rowlett Creek Bridge. With an overall construction cost of $13,055,771, Lacy Construction overcame the initial challenge of how to resurrect a project that had been dormant for 10+ years. The answer: test, re-test, repair and correct previously laid utilities and various site improvements to city standards and owner expectations. A staff of estimators, project managers, subcontractors and experienced field personnel conducted the work. Not only did Lacy accomplish the task ahead of schedule, the natural beauty of the site was preserved, making Suncreek one of this area's premiere residential developments.“Attitude is everything! And Lacy rates an A+ from my standpoint on this project. All elements for a successful project were there, especially in light of the contractor coordination necessary to successfully complete this residential development."Joel Robuck, Owner
DENTON CROSSING RETAIL - Denton, Texas - Job Type: New Retail Power Center (Commercial) - Number of Phases: 2 - Total Costs: $7,522,272 - Time Frame: Construction (August 2002 through August 2003) - Lacy was confronted with the complex problem of how to keep the main existing channel that was being monitored by the Corps of Engineers open to drainage, while at the same time relocating this channel without disrupting the flow of water. The challenge encountered involved how to coordinate all the cut to fill areas for the entire project in order to establish the flow of water to the proposed channel before cut could be removed from the proposed channel and placed in the existing channel. This challenge was magnified during the beginning of the project because the construction scheduled had to be maintained before authorization was granted to work in the channel by the Corps of Engineers under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. These complex problems were solved by heavy coordination of subcontractors and by establishing drainage to accommodate the entire site. The detailed phasing of the excavation process was a must to handle the problems in the existing and proposed channels. Lacy maintained a day to day schedule to complete the work on hand and adjusted crews to accommodate the aggressive schedule. “Hunt Properties feels great comfort knowing Lacy Construction has the ability to handle all of our construction and scheduling needs to meet our sometimes, ALMOST impossible commitments to tenants.” Ben Hummel, Vice President Hunt Properties, Inc.
PRESTONWOOD BAPTIST CHURCH - Plano, Texas - Job Type: Commercial, New Church Construction - Number of Phases: 5 - Total Costs: $6,363,499 - Time Frame: Phase I Construction 1997 through Phase 5 2003 In 1997, Lacy Construction participated in a ceremonial ground-breaking near a natural pond to mark the start of construction of one of the nation’s largest Baptist churches. Located in Plano, Texas, Prestonwood Baptist Church stands as a lighthouse in a busy residential community. Working with civil engineers, Graham & Associates, Lacy Construction first moved massive amounts of earth to accommodate Prestonwood’s huge sanctuary and related facilities. Utilities, site paving and full infrastructure soon followed to meet a fast-paced schedule set by the engineer and general building contractor, Manhattan Construction. As a testament to Lacy Construction’s abilities to both construct and coordinate the project, Lacy was awarded not only the phase one contract, but continued on the project on subsequent phases over a seven-year timeline. “Prestonwood Baptist Church was a fast-track project. Site work had to go fast and be done correctly. That's where Lacy Construction came in: On budget and on schedule. Lacy has again proven to be one of the best contractors in their field of expertise.” Jeff Williams, Project Engineer Graham & Associates
