In business since 1934, Kaplan Trucking is one of the most experienced steel hauling trucking companies in the United States. Through the years, Kaplan has grown to over 70 terminal locations in the eastern United States and Texas. For the renovation of the Gary, IN facility, Lee Companies acted as the Commercial Construction Management team and collaborated with the Ownership and Management of Kaplan Trucking. The original 3900 SF fast food chain restaurant was transformed into a state-of-the-art 7600 SF regional office and 8-acre terminal. Throughout the entire remodeling process, business was never interrupted and continued daily from inside the building due to the careful phasing and scheduling of Lee Companies. The renovation doubled the site capacity and transformed the interior from a congested and unadapted space into a highly organized open-concept office. The new space is flooded with light and perfectly aligned to the daily workflow of employees, drivers, and guests. The modern minimalist exterior features steel siding, perfect for the steel city.
