Case Study III | Manufacturing

No comments

Following a fire at a precast manufacturing plant in Lakeway, Texas, All Nation was contracted to perform the facility restoration. The 30,000 square foot/50′ tall warehouse is precast construction with bar joist/metal deck roof structure. One-third of the roof decking was fire damaged and required replacement. The structure was then soda blasted and sealed with shellac for smoke and odor control. Additionally, all windows and overhead doors were replaced, the wood shop and offices were entirely re-built, the majority of the roof blocking was replaced and the entire TPO roof system was removed and replaced.

The total scope of work performed by All Nation Restoration was nearly $825,000. The entire scope of work on this project was completed in one month. A quick response was critical to this client as down time prevented them from meeting customer demand.

Case Study II | Distribution Warehouse

No comments

A fire occurred at a plastics distribution facility in Georgetown, Texas, requiring restoration services for the facility. The entire 40,000 sq-ft building was affected by fire and/or smoke. During the four month restoration, nearly 6000 sq-ft of the facility required new structural columns and beams as well as new 2×12 roof framing, miscellaneous block work and a new roof. The remainder of the structure was cleaned, dry ice blasted, and re-painted to mitigate the smoke damage.

The scope of work performed by All Nation Restoration exceeded $340,000 for this four month restoration project.

No comments

A tornado swept through Waco, Texas damaging numerous residences and businesses. The destruction to this property included exterior walls of the home moved off of the foundation, the structural trusses shifted from their original place on the load bearing walls, and portions of the roof removed.

To restore this home, the property walls were stripped down to studs on both the interior and exterior, the trusses were shored up (or reinforced), load bearing walls were completely re-framed, and then interior and exterior were entirely re-worked from framing on through finished walls.

The total scope of work performed by All Nation Restoration exceeded $100,000.
