The Plating Shop Renovation project with a contract value of $20.8 million posed a significant challenge to Lawson because of the complexity and substantial scope. When Lawson completed the project, it had delivered to its customer, the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, a fully automated and state of the art plating facility. Throughout the course of the project, Lawson consistently provided the resources necessary to execute this complex and substantial project.
