Childress Engineering Services First Response Team was contacted to assess the building to determine if the remaining portions of the building was safe to begin the removal process of the contents. CES designed shoring plans to support the 2nd and 3rd floors and designed temporary lateral support for the rest of the building. The shoring and temporary lateral support remained in place during the removal of contents, demolition, and re-construction of the damaged portion of the building.
