The Problem: Catastrophic Water Damage

Frozen pipes burst under pressure and flooded a school district. The flooding crumbled multiple facilities within the district, including a high school, an elementary school, and a technology center, all of which sustained catastrophic water damage as well as damages to the infrastructure. The flooding further overwhelmed the facility boiler, a malfunction that severely obstructed the HVAC systems, requiring auxiliary ventilation and heat.

In total, a combined area of over 500,000 sq. ft. was affected. A 265,000 sq. ft. High School, a 164,000 sq. ft. Elementary School, and a Technology Center measuring over 96,000 sq. ft. were impacted by the catastrophe, including classrooms and administrative spaces.
