Projects are Proceeding at The Salvation Army

Hello RFMA Members,

There has been numerous projects completed over the past several weeks at the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center (SAAR) in Phoenix. They have made a significant impact of the organization by saving them valuable capital dollars along with improving the overall moral of the residents. Thanks in advance to the all the companies and individuals who are making this happen. Following is a brief review of the completed jobs:

-          Mad Jack’s Asphalt and Concrete replaced numerous areas in front of the warehouse where the SAAR delivery trucks have worn out and cracked the existing parking lot. The amount of replacement was huge and it looks great.

-          Roll-A-Shade supplied and replaced window coverings with blinds in over 40 rooms in the facility. These make the room ambience better and will be a tremendous help during the brutally hot Phoenix summers.

-          Legacy Air paid for new dropped ceilings that were installed in the movie and rec rooms and KDC Construction removed the existing and installed the new. Take a look at the photos. The rooms look great.

-          Red Lobster supplied the new red carpet squares for the movie and rec rooms along with the hallway in the first floor. Progressive Flooring completed the installation. Looks sharp. The residents love their newly remodeled rooms.

-          KDC Construction made numerous repairs in the kitchen BOH to the walls and ceilings. New FRP was installed throughout. The kitchen staff was impressed.

There are still a few projects remaining and they are scheduled to start in mid February. The existing 40 year old a/c coils in the 30 residents rooms will be replaced. This will help the rooms maintain a cooler temperature in the summer and save on utilities. The Salvation Army purchased all the units and Micah Dyer, CRFP, with Legacy Air is coordinating the installations. The installing companies are: Legacy Air, Andrew's Refrigeration, and TDIndustries.

I continue to be humbled by our membership who consistently donate their time, services, and/or money to this worthwhile event.

Also, special thanks to the Project Managers: Vern Huskey, Starbucks, Micah Dyer, CRFP, Legacy Air, and Tim Vanacker, CRFP, Kilwins Chocolate Franchise, Inc. The overall project would not be where it’s at without their passion on coordinating and seeing the jobs get completed with minimal interruption to the Salvation Army.

Stay tuned for more updates. We’re not done yet!

Dover and out.
