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.”
