Elkins has built more than 50 stores for Lowe’s throughout Florida and Alabama. As a result of superior performance on the first Lowe’s project, Elkins continues to work with Lowe’s through negotiated and lump sum contracts, totaling nearly 7,000,000 SF and over $343,000,000 in value. Elkins initiated Lowe’s first use of tilt-wall construction on their projects. Elkins, who has the ability to self-perform tilt projects, reviewed the retailer’s drawings and found that tilt-wall construction would provide a faster schedule and reduced construction cost. Lowe’s now uses tilt-wall construction frequently.
