Observations | A Year in Review
With the end of 2018 rapidly approaching, it is always interesting to reflect on what the year brought us. At Bailey Edward, we’ve experienced an amazing year filled with growth in relationships, projects, and employees.
We opened 115 new projects for new and existing clients. We are actively working on almost $600,000,000 in construction across 230 projects, all while meeting over 98% of our deadlines early or on time.
In 2018, BE welcomed 12 new team members across all our offices with an effective 17% growth in staff. Each employee has been an important addition to the company adding to our knowledge base, skill level and superb teamwork.
We were recognized for our top design work and focus on sustainable design by winning regional design awards for the Kankakee Illinois Army National Guard Readiness Center and Aviation Support Facility, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Chemistry Annex, and receiving a LEED Silver and a LEED Gold certification for those respective projects.
Bailey Edward’s pace of new and interesting projects continues into 2019 with work for new, past and current clients. As always, our primary goal is to create meaningful spaces for people and their communities. We feel very fortunate for all the opportunities and growth we experienced in 2018. A big “Thank you” to our staff, clients and consultants and we can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store!
