Though construction was held-up on site in building the U.S. Attorney's Office in Louisville, Bristol Group was able to keep the project on track by building precast concrete elements at its Lexington plant.

Though relatively new in the United States, precast concrete is quickly revolutionizing the fast-track design-build construction process. Precast increases speed of construction, while providing high quality, design and aesthetic flexibility, durability and energy efficiency.

Track record of fast-track projects

Fairfield 002 580

The Fairfield Inn by Marriott is a 114-room mid-rise hotel created for Marriott's business traveler, and is a signature fast-track project for Bristol Group. Designing an economic, yet structurally superior precast system, Bristol Group completed this 65,000-square-foot facility in 12 months.
