Lee Contracting, Detroit Pistons Partner to Rehab Community Library

This past September, the Detroit Pistons unveiled a new library at J.E. Clark Preparatory Academy in Detroit, Michigan. It was admired by the students and staff of the school along with officials from the Pistons, Farm Bureau, Detroit Schools, and former Detroit Pistons player, Earl Cureton. After 7 years without a functional library, the school was gifted a beautifully updated Pistons themed library with the help of Lee Contracting.

Over the last four years, Lee Contracting has partnered with the Pistons and The Palace to perform work at their many entertainment venues in the Metro Detroit area. Lee Contracting has worked at the Palace and DTE Energy Music Theater completing several renovations over the years. These renovations included: installing new lighting in the Pistons training center, rebuilding truck dock platforms, building stage extensions at DTE, renovating the blue room, and rebuilding the loading docks at Meadow Brook Amphitheater. Lee’s core capabilities are rigging, electrical, foundations, mechanical, fabrication and maintenance and repair.

Pistons vision for the library were done with the multi-skilled dynamic that Lee performs. Skills performed in this transformation included reconstructing missing pieces of the original foundation such as the benches and shelving units, refinishing the wood, installing new flooring and light fixtures. Lastly, painting the library in the Pistons theme all while keeping the original integrity of the space.

“Lee Contracting was excited to partner with the Detroit Pistons on the J.E. Clark Preparatory Academy library project. We value the opportunity to give back to the community in which we work and play. Knowing that our hard work will inspire generations of students to learn makes this a memorable project,” says Brian Rausch, Project Manager for Lee Contracting.
