BELFOR Bend responded to a devastating fire that heavily damaged a local church in March. BELFOR was shown on a local live KTVZ broadcast covering the fire damage. The 24/7 emergency technicians, including General Manager Derek Stewart and Project Manager Brian Prisel, have been earnestly at work providing essential services around the clock in order to protect the site from further damage.
BELFOR Bend Gets A+
Flood waters from melting mountain snow packs and heavy rains caused significant water damage to properties in the Grant School District No. 3, including the high school, transportation and district offices. BELFOR dispatched an emergency team that quickly mobilized to begin water extraction and structural drying. BELFOR also managed a multi-phase reconstruction project that included the abatement process, electrical work, flooring, painting, plumbing, and the re-positioning of staff and equipment back into classrooms and offices.
Only one day of school was lost, and all project deadlines were met. "BELFOR was able to manage all of their work while not impacting student instruction. Their ability to completely move the district office and contents in one day was also very impressive. We did not lose a single hour of productivity during the process," said District Superintendent Mark Witty.
