Projects Are Rolling !!!

Hello RFMA members,

Projects are moving along nicely at the Salvation Army in Phoenix. Following is a brief summary:

-           All the ceiling fluorescent ceiling light fixtures in the first floor were upgraded to LED type, saving valuable utility and replacement bulb dollars. Thanks to Vixxo Sign and Lighting for supplying the fixtures and Legacy Air for installation. The new light levels are great.

-           All the shower stalls in the east side of the community restroom have been completely rebuilt and are now usable with no leaking downstairs. The center section with all new sinks, mirrors, lights, plumbing fixtures and soap dispensers is under construction and is scheduled to be completed by Christmas. The final phase of rebuilding the west side shower stalls will commence in January. Thanks to CGP Construction, TD Industries, Ferguson Plumbing, Creative Materials Corporation, Galaxy Builders, KDC Construction, Panda Restaurant Group and Starbucks for donating the materials and labor to complete such a large project. It looks sharp and the residents are proud to be using the new facility.

-           A new concrete floor was poured in the old walk in cooler/freezer location in the kitchen BOH area, thanks to Andrew’s Refrigeration. This room will now be used for storage.

-           Roll-A-Shade will be installing new window coverings in over 40 rooms which will make a big difference after the old curtains were removed.

-           Big thanks to Westrock for supplying the construction dumpster(s) for all the above mentioned projects.

-           Another thanks to Legacy Air for warehousing the equipment and materials used for several of these projects.

-           A new water softening system was supplied and installed by Kinetico. This will help immensely with water quality and equipment maintenance due to the high hardness of the water in Phoenix.

-           Thanks to Chipotle for supplying materials and their own labor to completely remodel four(4) existing employee restrooms in the second floor. Made a big difference.

-           A new BOH kitchen exterior door was supplied and installed by Vortex Industries. It looks great and increases the security for the Salvation Army kitchen staff.

-           Special thanks to the following companies that provided financial donations which helps fund the projects being completed: Painter Ready, Enevo, Inc., CGP Construction, KDC Construction, Clark Service Group, Desert West Builders, and DMC Facility Services.

-           Thanks to Major Dennis Earnhart of the Salvation Army and all of his staff who have been patient with the work proceeding in their facility.

-           A new a/c coil was supplied and installed in one of the residence rooms by Legacy Air for better cooling as it was over 40 years old. Made a huge difference. There are 32 more rooms with this system and we are feverishly looking for donors to purchase these.Trane will supply these at their cost. The approximate cost is $1000 per unit. Please contact me if you are interested in making a donation for some of these as they are needed. Feel free to contact me at: jeff@rfmaonline.com or phone me at (972) 805-0905, x-3.

-           Last, but definitely not least, a big shout out to the Co-Project Managers, Tim Vanacker (Desert West Builders), CRFP, Vern Huskey (Starbucks), and Micah Dyer (Legacy Air), CRFP. These guys have done a great job in getting donators for these projects and supervising them. None of this would be possible without their passionate assistance.

Stay tuned for more updates. We are on target to have the entire project completed by our conference in March. I truly apologize if I missed anyone in their contribution to these wonderful projects.

Dover and out
