Back in April, our SRM team was called out to Watertown, SD to take the lead on a fire loss at the company, TEREX. TEREX is a well-known manufacturing plant that makes the protective fiberglass for the boom of work trucks.
It is unknown the direct cause of the fire, but we do know that one of the drying ovens flashed out from the heat duct vent, sending a significant amount of soot and smoke throughout the central area of the plant. Immediately after Dave Bell, Vice President of Construction and Project Management, was notified about this job, our team loaded up our SRM trucks, and they were on the road, headed to South Dakota to help with the cleanup and restoration of this company. Within a few hours, Ken Peterson, Project Manager; John Kangas, Project Site Supervisor; and Drake Brown, Alex Batchenkov, and Billy Giddings, Restoration Technicians were on-site to evaluate the work that needed to be done.
The following morning the team began their work. They cornered off four different demo and cleaning areas in the less affected areas of the building, so the plant could still stay in operation while they cleaned the priority areas. Our team worked efficiently and tirelessly to clean and restore all the damage that occurred during the fire loss.
They were able to complete this job in seven days, and TEREX was able to stay in business throughout the whole restoration process.
