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 expansion.

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.
