Competitive Advantages

  • We work on every project like it’s our own.   We are committed, young and agile management team and won’t stop until it is perfect.
  • Design Build and Engineering. We know exactly what your facility needs to run at tip-top shape and will not low ball project requirements merely to win a bid.  This also means we will not cut corners or use inferior methods as many of our competitors do which results in unsafe, sloppy work.
  • We know our strengths and stick to them as well as our partners. We excel on design-build healthcare, commercial, industrial, and challenging projects that others would likely pass on.  More than 75% of our projects are design build.
  • Our employees are our greatest asset.  There is no revolving door for employees at LEC.  If they are on our team they are the top skilled craftsmen in their industry and the lifeblood of our company.  We reward our employees by providing industry leading pay, fully covered healthcare plans for employees, generous vacation time, 401K and profit sharing plans, bonuses, tool allowances, company vehicles and much more.  Our employee compensation package is second to none.
