While most people will never get to see it, this separate building outside of our Mecklenburg HS project is a major part of what keeps the school functioning. #BuildingLegacies ...

Collaborative and innovative, our employee owners work hard through Building Information Modeling (BIM) to ensure that all parts of the project are placed correctly. #BuildingLegacies ...

An aesthetic we're proud of. These pipes run electricity from a central energy plant to the main building at our Carilion project. #BuildingLegacies ...

Focused on every aspect, our team of experienced welders make sure that every pipe, weld, and cut that comes out of our fabrication shop is precise. #BuildingLegacies ...

What's better than a bird's eye view? This photo of some Aquatherm pipe was taken from the top of the new rooftop units we installed at our Carilion CEP project! #BuildingLegacies ...

Our experienced employee owners are part of the reason we provide quality duct from our prefabrication shop. #BuildingLegacies ...

One thing we are proud of in our industry is that the pay gap between male and female workers is nearly nonexistent. Women make 99.1% of what men make in the construction industry! #WICWeek2022 #WomeninConstructionWeek #BuildingLegacies ...

Wondering why our employee owner looks so small in this photo? Might be because he is standing on one of the biggest chillers on the east coast. #BuildingLegacies ...

Our prefabrication shop saves time and cost by creating quality products in our own controlled environment. #BuildingLegacies ...

From start to end, we trust our team to get the job done. Our employee owner's extensive knowledge passes down from our superintendents to our entry-level apprentices! #BuildingLegacies ...

Service techs play an important role in our company. We monitor the system to make sure the server room is staying cool but also above the dew point. #BuildingLegacies ...

It's not a traditional 9-5 and we like it that way. #BuildingLegacies ...

These pipes house over 400 feet of electric wire that starts in a central energy plant and travels underground before entering the main building. #BuildingLegacies ...

This chiller had to be broken down into pieces, suspended in the air, and cleaned for reassembly. #BuildingLegacies ...

This chiller was a little too big to fit through the door. Any guesses on how many major pieces we broke it down into to fit through the door? #BuildingLegacies ...

Studies show that trade and construction workers are the happiest employees. Can you name a few reasons why?#BuildingLegacies ...

It doesn't just have to work well, it has to look good, too. You can tell a lot about a contractor by their quality of work. #BuildingLegacies ...
