Catastrophe

This depends on the level of damage your building has experienced, but we often phase the restoration to get tenants back into the space as quickly and safely as possible. Repair time also depends on any damage done to the building’s structure, which may not be immediately evident. If the building requires no reconstruction, the restoration process can happen quickly. Many aspects of a restoration can be a continuous process. Regular duct cleaning is required to completely remove particles, annual water and moisture mapping for mold is necessary to keep it under control, and general inspections are recommended to make sure the restoration is supporting a safe and functional building.

After a natural disaster or accident, contact the team at ATI so we can assess your property. We will work closely with your insurance company and its adjusters and make recommendations for recovering materials, removing debris, and reconstructing your property.

Depending on what’s been documented and prepped before a disaster, getting your business back in good condition will depend on the damage, building type and age, and contents condition. Recovery and restoration experts can assess the damage and give an estimated schedule on the time it will take to repair. Contact one of our restoration experts to learn more about the process that is needed for restoring your commercial property.

Decontamination

Costs vary depending on the size of the space, the number of treatments needed, and the time it will take to fully decontaminate. Consult with ATI to get a price estimate.

That depends on the size of your space and the severity of the contaminants present in your building and what other cleaning and disinfection methods are being used.

No. The light from UVGI technology is only dangerous for the microorganisms that are targeted by this technology.

Demolition

Costs for controlled demolition vary by building size, recycling goals, the density of the surrounding area, whether a building has a concrete structure or is made of structural steel, the proposed schedule, equipment needs, hauling requirements, and other considerations. Contact ATI for project assessment and an estimate.

Controlled demolition, whether the entire building is being demolished or only selected areas, is ideal when a tall building or high-rise reaches a point where it is damaged beyond repair, structurally unsound, or experiencing hazardous materials that can’t be abated. 

They are often both used in demolition. Selective demolition is the demolition of only a portion of a building or certain material. Controlled demolition refers to the implosion of a tall building or large building, sometimes called a free fall. Both require careful planning.

Fire Damage

This depends on the level of damage your building has experienced, but we often phase the restoration to get tenants back into the space as quickly and safely as possible.

In the event of damaged doors and windows that leave your building vulnerable to thieves or vandalism, ATI will board up your doors and windows to prevent intruders from ransacking your building or causing further damage to it.  We can also provide perimeter security and fencing to keep your building safe.

It depends on the loss condition and the type of items, but more contents can be restored than most people assume. Documents, electronics, furniture, collectibles, heirlooms, and artwork are just some of the items that can be restored.
