Champion was hired by Wehr Construction to add support to the Historic building in downtown Lexington as they converted it to an 88-room boutique hotel, contemporary art museum, cultural center and home to Lockbox restaurant, led by executive chef Jonathan Searle. Champion was hired to add additional support to the old stone foundation as they added additional levels and weight above. Champion produced and engineered solution by “slotting” underneath the building. All work was done below ground underneath the building. Champion had to pump 150 yards of concrete in 30 separate pours to create a new foundation for the building. The project took 3 months and was completed on time.
