Little Rock Christian Academy is one of the largest private schools in Arkansas. A significant wind storm left a gaping hole in the roofline of the administrative building, and a large tree cut the fiber cables. They lost internet access, crippling everything from student enrollment and tuition payment to employee payroll and classroom activities.
Pro Service Builders makes every effort to minimize the impact of a disaster on our clients' business and daily lives. Our first step was to minimize disruption to school activities and provide temporary internet access for the school and make sure school administrators could continue working.
The closest working internet source was the gym across the street. We worked with the cable contracting company to run temporary fiber cables above the road and into the school building.
Throughout the Little Rock Christian Academy rebuild project, our contractors relied heavily on our expertise dealing with insurance companies, and wherever possible deliver improvements to the buildings we work on beyond just restoring their previous facility. Thanks to Pro Service Builders' experience handling insurance claims, we completely replaced their fiber cable infrastructure without any additional charge to the school.
The next step in the restoration process was to address the severely damaged roof and facade of the administrative building. Our contractors determined that the facade was too old and damaged. We could not merely patch the front of the building.
In working closely with school leaders, Pro Service Builders learned that the school desperately needed more space in their administrative offices that were located in the damaged area of the building. Our team presented various restoration options, including simply repairing the damage or expanding the existing space.
The storm handed Little Rock Christian Academy lemons in the form of severe damage to their building. They chose to make lemonade and take the opportunity to expand the administrative offices. Our contractors added much-needed workspace, repaired the roof, and replaced the damaged building facade.
