univest building


At 8:30am on an August Saturday morning, the fire alarms went off on a five-story office building in Vero Beach. The building, which was home to law offices, engineering firms and other business professionals, was on fire!

Job Scope

Service Master by Glenn’s was on the scene within the hour to start remediating not only the fire damage on the 3rd floor of the building, but the smoke damage that had damaged the other two floors of the office building as well. As with all fire damages, water is needed to put out the fire, so this was not only a fire damage and smoke / odor remediation job, but the water damage caused by putting the fire damage had to be restored as well.

Keith Grella was called upon to not only handle the restoration of the fire damage, smoke damage and water damage, but also as the Project Manager for the repair and rebuild phase of the project after the restoration was complete.

ServiceMaster by Glenn’s utilized round the clock cleaning crews, had to gut the five story office building to the studs, replace all the air ducts in the building and do multiple fog treatments to get rid of the smoke odor.
