Repairs to Benjamin Martin Elementary School

Location: Fayetteville, NC

Size: 70,000 sq ft

Client: Cumberland County Schools

Contractor: Simon Roofing Company

Budget: $730,000

An emergency (after-hours) evaluation was completed the day after a tornado damaged the school.  The project was fast-tracked to ensure that the builiding could be occupied at the start of school.  Over 2.5 million dollars of repairs were made to the school in less than four months preventing the need to bus students across town.  The work included structural repairs as well as a new 70,000 square foot three-ply asphalt built-up roof.  The total cost was well below insurance estimates.  Our firm, acting as the lead design consultant for the project, was able to process all submittals, contracts, and other documentation to ensure the project schedule could be maintained.  The school was fully repaired and ready for students on opening day.
