Project Description

Select Demo Services is primarily a provider of selective, interior demolition work and a part of New England Finishes Group, a symbiotic partnership of interior finishing and construction service providers serving commercial clients throughout New England.

In 2015, New England Finishes purchased a building in Salem, NH, to consolidate warehouse operations for all of its companies under one roof. The building, a former manufacturing facility, had been empty for over five years and much of the equipment was neglected and in poor repair. Vice President and Chief of Operations for Select Demo, Ryan Denver, had worked with Bode Equipment on other, smaller projects and had always been pleased with their work. He reached out to them for assistance in refurbishing the facility.

With multiple lease obligations and move out dates for the various businesses under the New England Finishes umbrella, meeting a project completion deadline was essential to ensuring minimal disruption to the companies’ operations.

“Life safety code has changed significantly since the building was last renovated,” says Denver. “We needed a team with the skill and know-how to bring our facility up to compliance quickly.”

After assessing the condition of the building and equipment, the Bode team got to work repairing and replacing all of the loading dock doors and equipment as well as some interior, roll-up fire doors. In all, fifteen existing sectional doors and operators were removed and replaced along with ten existing dock shelters and all existing dock bumpers. Six new sectional door positions with operators were added along with a dock leveler for a new dock that was constructed. Of the ten existing dock levelers, four were replaced while the remaining levelers were restored to good working condition with some repairs and maintenance. To comply with new life safety codes for the interior of the building, three existing steel roll-up fire doors were replaced and two new ones were added.

Overall, the project went smoothly, with Bode working in tandem with other contractors to bring the building up to code and fully operational in the necessary timeframe.

“The Bode team met every deadline and provided excellent service and product,” adds Denver. “We’re very pleased with the result and have already contracted with them for another project at one of our Massachusetts locations.”
