Auburn, AL, April 2014 – Bailey-Harris Construction Company has just begun construction of a new Girls Treatment Facility for the Alabama Department of Youth Services at the Mt. Meigs Campus in east Montgomery County. Designed by Poole and Company Architects, the facility will consist of a 16,000 square foot dormitory building with indoor and outdoor recreational spaces, as well as a separate 11,000 square foot administration-education building with offices, classrooms, a library and a severe weather safe space.

This project will be LEED certified by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a green building rating system developed by the USGBC for the construction of energy efficient buildings. The project is also on a very fast-paced timeline, but the Contractor is up to the challenge according to Richard Lovelace, Senior Project Manager for Bailey-Harris. “Although the project completion date is very aggressive,” states Lovelace, “we are confident in our plan to meet it. The Owner and Architect are both working with us as a team to achieve this goal.”

Bailey-Harris is excited to have begun construction of its first project for the Montgomery County Department of Youth Services, though this is not the company’s first project in Montgomery. Bailey-Harris has completed several projects for the Montgomery County Commission, Montgomery City Schools and the Retirement System of Alabama, to name a few. Allen Harris, President and CEO of Bailey-Harris, speaks glowingly of their relationship: “We have had a presence in Montgomery for a number of years and we thoroughly enjoy working there. Our main office is in Auburn, but Montgomery is our second home. We are pleased to be a part of the continued growth in the area.”

Bailey-Harris and Touchstone Precision Partner for Success for Third Time

Auburn, AL, April 2014 – Bailey-Harris Construction Company and Touchstone Precision, Inc. (TPI) have been partners since December 2000, when Bailey-Harris began the design and construction of a 30,000 square foot facility for TPI, located at 239 Technology Parkway in Auburn.

TPI, an affiliate company of Dai-Ichi Seiko Co., Ltd., based in Kyoto, Japan, specializes in high precision insert and composite plastic injection molded components and assemblies for the automotive, electronics and medical markets. Since its inception in 1963, Dai-Ichi Seiko has been a leading manufacturer in the precision injection molding industry.

The success of TPI, which was developed stateside in 2000, contributed to a partnership with Bailey-Harris again in 2010, to construct a 9,500 square foot expansion to the existing facility.

Today, in 2014, Bailey-Harris and TPI are working together once again to complete a major expansion of close to 70,000 square feet. This project will allow TPI to move certain processes into a new building, making room in the existing building for more injection molding machines.

Bailey-Harris is proud to welcome Takaharu Tsuchiyama, President of TPI, to Auburn April 6-9, as he makes a visit to the Plains to kick off the major expansion. This is the second expansion for TPI, since Dai-Ichi Seiko decided to locate one of its 12 worldwide manufacturing facilities in this area in 2000.
