Case Study


Renaud Consulting was immediately engaged to provide safe customer access after the early morning collapse of a twenty-five foot (25’) section of under ceiling structure above the pedestrian sidewalk at a 61,600 square foot shopping center.  Continually fostering excellent vendor relationships, the contractor mobilized a team of six (6) workers within an hour to block off an extensive safety perimeter while evaluating the likelihood for further collapse. Keeping the property owner informed on each step critical step, Renaud Consulting promptly implemented an orderly removal of the remaining ceiling. Over the following six (6) weeks, a new exterior ceiling structure was installed.  During the entire construction process, safe pedestrian and customer walkways were maintained for all the operating businesses.  Experience and immediate response makes a difference when life safety issues are at risk and time is of the essence.
