In August of 2011 the north east was hit by hurricane Irene. Northern New Jersey experienced major flooding. We were contacted, through the Custom Made web site, by a business owner who's office had experienced major damage due to flooding. Below are some pictures as to extent of the damage.
The scope of the project involved duplicating the existing office furniture. The original work was quite involved and the owner was unsure as how to proceed. We scheduled an appointment and met to discuss what the options were and to see what might be able to be salvaged. The picture herein are the end result of that meeting.
The bulk of the project is plain sliced Walnut veneer with a clear coat finish. One of the offices incorporates a Corian solid surface top which we were able to salvage. You will also see various custom lateral files, the drawers themselves constructed of Baltic birch plywood on full extension slides. Shelving units have a clear plain sliced Maple interior. Each office also has a custom made coat closet.
The existing units were disassembled and taken back to our shop where we deconstructed them, remanufactured them and then reinstalled the new finished project.
