DISASTER

Just as the grass was turning green in the spring of 2014, a fire struck Green View Landscaping production offices in their Dunlap location. Operations were relocated to other Green View locations, however, this left a void for customer service in Dunlap during the company’s busiest time of year. They needed to recover—fast.

RECOVERY

The structure was deemed a total loss requiring architectural services to draw the insured’s new building to pre-loss condition. During this phase, Green View was able to make small changes to enhance their operations processes. To expedite construction, we implemented the design build model, which allowed bidding and construction scheduling to occur as the architect completed structural phases. This also ensured the building design would match a pre-determined budget.

RESULT

The new building was designed and rebuilt within six months, which minimized Green View’s customer service interruption. In addition, the design build process meant the total project was delivered on time and under budget. And that left a little more green in Green View’s pocket.

“ I met weekly with our Project Manager, Don, and he was always prepared to go over any outstanding issues and had followed up on things we talked about the week before. We are enjoying the new building and it is performing well.”

— Thomas D. Hoerr II President Green View Landscaping
