I want to complement all of your guys that were at Surgoinsville Middle School last night. Cbo called me around 8:40pm with a problem of water running down the hallway and they were mopping up water as fast as they could. The water was coming from under the door in the guidance office, which none of us had a key to open the door. I called my plumber and we went to the school and one of the guys had found a cut off, in the ceiling, so they stopped the flow of water. A custodian, Elser, came to unlock the guidance office and what a mess. The water pipe had “blown off” at a connection and was shooting a stream of water, above the block walls, from the custodians closet to the guidance office.
You guys mopped up all the water, got a fan to dry the floor, picked up the wet supplies that were in a box in the office, took down all the wet ceiling tile and never did any one of them complain, they apologized for having to call me.
I have been impressed with the crews installing the lights since the start of our project, but last night was something special to see from a contractor. I can’t say enough good things about the crew and their response to the situation. I want to give you and every man on the crew a very special thanks for going above and beyond their call of duty.
