Multi-Story Retail Space
Winter Storm Uri brought a severe freeze that caused a 1 inch fire suppression line to break on the third floor of a large retail space. The break released water into the space for approximately 6-8 hours. Target Solutions was called in when the damage was discovered.
After arriving on the scene, the Target team began mitigation efforts by extracting all standing water, then removing all affected drywall. In total, 30,000 square feet of hardwood floors and 10,000 square feet of partition walls were removed as a result of the extensive water damage. Drying of the facility took nearly 3 weeks due to the saturation level and building components. The alternative would be to rebuild, which would have been costly and resulted in a much longer business interruption. Multiple vendors, tenants, and personal contents were affected. Target Solutions coordinated with affected tenants to ensure that their expectations were met during the mitigation process.
