Green Bay, WI – Matt Everett, owner of Paul Davis Restoration and Remodeling with offices in Fox Valley, Central Wisconsin, and Northeast Wisconsin, along with his office team recently completed a seven month fire restoration project at Building 109, 3334 Walter Way at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. The building serves as one of the University’s original residential apartment buildings built in 1970. The building sustained heavy damage by fire in June will open this month for student occupancy.
According to Everett, the
fire was reported on June 25, 2009 at the two-story structure with 17 units and
63 beds. At the time, the structure was unoccupied for the summer and there
were no injuries. The official cause of the damage was not determined and authorities
suspect electrical failure and no arson.
“Within a few weeks of the
fire, we heard from University officials who decided to restore the building.
Restoration was a better option with our services and coverage by insurance at
an estimated $800,000 instead of replacing the facility for well into the
millions,” said Everett.
Everett commends his staff
with the speedy restoration of the building and is pleased to work with
University housing officials and others on campus. “We provided emergency
mitigation services, board ups, fire restoration and drying methods along with extensive
reconstruction of two of the three main areas of the primary building and all
restoration of the mechanical systems damaged by the loss,” said Everett. According
to Everett, the main building was torn down to the foundation and rebuilt from
the ground up.
“Our hard-working and
dedicated team of highly-trained and certified craftsman assessed the damage
and planned the restoration to complete the large project in a short period of
time,” he said. “Our associates received much-deserved accolades for their job
assessment, estimating and construction management abilities. The job
completion is a testament to our staff members’ skill and expertise.”
