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
