In the summer of 1999 the Owner of Lee Steel Corporation contacted
Maltese Construction LLC to design and build a new industrial facility
in Wyoming, Michigan. They did not have a site, but needed to start
building soon in that area as their business was expanding.
D. J. Maltese traveled to Wyoming, Michigan with the Owners to find a
site. Through their travels and communication with the City of Wyoming
they came across a new Industrial Park. They were able to secure a site,
close on it, design and build a facility while securing the Owner tax
credits for the development. The building was designed for future
In 2011 the Owner of Lee Steel contacted Maltese Construction to begin
the process of expanding the original building as their business was
growing. In June of 2011 an agreement to design and build the addition
to their current steel processing center was signed. The addition would
include one new bay and pallet room.
The building addition is a pre-engineered building with pre-cast tilt-up
walls at the front and back, and a polished masonry belt with steel
siding above on the side. The total building height is about 42 feet.
All materials look and match the existing building, so it does not look
like an addition.
By mid August the drawings were completed and building permits secured,
steel ordered and site work started. Demolition work included removal of
landscaping and two driveways from a private road to the existing
building. New construction included underground drainage, foundations,
steel, masonry, pre-cast concrete, service doors, overhead doors, HVAC,
plumbing, electrical, concrete slab, site paving, machine pits, one new
35 ton crane and new landscaping.
The project was completed in December 2012, on time and within budget to
the satisfaction of the Owner.
