" I knew from the first meeting with the McLeay family they were the company I wanted to partner with to build my business. McLeay building group was very professional, honest, and dedicated. I can’t thank them enough for the superior job they did for me and my family. We will be dedicated clients for many years. "

A favorite local sports bar all over Omaha. This would be the third location for this very successful Bar and Grill Owner. This was a renovation of a former national food chain with the original plan for maintaining the majority of the kitchen area and reconfiguration of the bar and dining area. The project experienced several challenges including neglected maintenance and new code compliance issues.
The failure of a metal fixture supplier brought McLeay Building Company into the requirement to self-fabricate all of the overhead steel suspension system for the 30 plus televisions located in the bar area. This is a branded feature of all Addy’s locations. The work was completed on-site and still met schedule requirements.
" Our challenge was getting this accomplished while maintaining a sterile work environment. McLeay Building understood the urgency and worked through the problem quickly and with a permanent solution. John and his staff created a quarantined area with negative air flow to keep dust out of our work environment. The project was completed in record time with the coordination of multiple trades to allow for a new foundation to withstand our new 100,000 lb. press. The McLeay’s took all of the pressure on their shoulders for us and delivered. "

The arrival of their long awaited multi-million dollar Heidelberg press was met with significant challenges after attempts to place and calibrate the 100,000 lb high speed press on its structural foundation. With tolerances of .003 inches, it was discovered that the 3’ thick structural slab had too much movement to meet the ridged German requirements.
Working with Soils and Structural consultants, McLeay Building Company developed plans for a deep foundation system that would meet the tight structural tolerances.
The work would require the removal of the existing structural slab, excavation for a reinforced pier cap and the installation of helical piles to bearing strata. This work was followed by placement of 110 cubic yards of high strength concrete. AND, keep the Press Operation running. All work was completed in one week and the 100,000 lb press installed in the following week.
" From day one to after Heights Draft Room's completion, McLeay Building company has provided what can only be described as white glove service. The attention to detail and ability to adapt on the spot made the build out process a smooth transition from concept to opening the doors. Their desire to go above and beyond for us showed their care for not only our project, but us as clients. We never felt like customers during the process though, rather friends working towards mutual goals. "

This was a ground up design assist project for the construction of a 5,300 sf 2 story Restaurant and Brewery. Features of the family owned and operated brewpub include 1,500 sf on-site brewery operation, full service kitchen and upper level exterior deck. The restaurant features two dining rooms and 2 full service bars.
Located in Old Elkhorn site conditions proved to be challenging with unknown utilities and tight adjacencies to neighboring buildings.
The project met all expectations for budget and schedule.
" I really enjoy working with you all. You are stand-up + integrity-driven folks. It makes things easy. "
