Ben Lewis Overcomes the Unexpected to Help Team Meet Mid-Rise Timeline

Ben Lewis Plumbing won a contract to work with The Bozzuto Group to install new construction plumbing for their Arlington, Virginia mid-rise residential building, Garfield Park. The building was designed as a mix of residential units, retail space and a portion of live-work units above two levels of parking consisting of 280 spaces for commercial and residential use. When the Ben Lewis team came on-site to perform their portion of the work, they discovered the lowest level of parking was wet. After investigating the source, the Ben Lewis team uncovered a previously unknown underground spring that was creating a moisture problem for the project. Thinking creatively, the team dug a huge hole and funneled the spring water into it where it was constantly pumped out, collected and removed from the job site. The dewatering process was constant until the issue was resolved. The Ben Lewis team went on to seamlessly complete their plumbing work, helping the entire Garfield Park project team meet its mission critical deadlines.

Ben Lewis Gets Creative to Meet Tight Deadlines

Ben Lewis won the plumbing construction contract for The Elms at Clarksburg Village. The team played a critical role in helping The Clark Builders Group complete construction on this luxury residential apartment community under a shorter than usual construction timeline. The entire project team needed to find creative ways to save time while also ensuring that the strict quality standards of each organization would be met. The Ben Lewis team thought out-of-the-box and recommended pre-fabricating the underground plumbing systems in advance of their scheduled onsite work. This approach would save significant time without sacrificing quality. And this is exactly what the Ben Lewis team did. The team built the prefab plumbing system off-site in advance and then expertly installed it, thereby saving significant time and helping the Clark Builders Group complete construction as efficiently as possible.
