Municipal Construction & Restoration

Municipal buildings are among the most visible and recognizable structures in cities throughout Michigan. They often house the most essential government operations, including fire departments, police departments, city halls, and courthouses, many of which operate around the clock, every day of the year. Due to their importance to local communities and high levels of traffic, these buildings must remain highly functional and safe at all times.

F. Lax Construction is southeast Michigan’s first call for municipal construction, servicing properties in need of restoration or general contracting. We handle repairs; restorations due to damage sustained from natural and mad-made disasters; plus general structural and interior improvements. Over the years, we have built strong relationships with municipal leaders who appreciate our industry knowledge and dedication to providing the highest quality work in a timely fashion. We work closely with government leaders, architects, planners, and more to assess damage to municipal properties and develop project plans to restore them to their original splendor.

“Our team has gone through all proper channels and met all requirements to be approved to work in city and government buildings. They are also trained to minimize interruptions to staff and the flow of business.”

When You Need Municipal Restoration

Having your commercial property consumed by fire and smoke can be emotionally trying and devastating. We provide the guidance and support you need to salvage as much of your property and contents as possible, offering you some level of reassurance during this difficult time.

Water damage can come from a number of sources, including toilet overflows, burst pipes, and leaking roofs. As an IICRC Certified water damage restoration company, we will identify the source of the water infiltration, identify any hazards, repair and restore the affected areas.

Shifting weather patterns and seasonal storms can occur when you least expect it. Whereas damage from fallen trees and power lines can be easily identified, other types of damage to your property can be less obvious. Through a thorough assessment, we will identify all damage sources and detail the restoration process.

Mold damage not only affects your property, but it can negatively impact the health of you and your employees. Because mold grows quickly almost anywhere that moisture exists, it is important to contact us as soon as you recognize symptoms of a mold issue so that we can begin the remediation process.

Biohazardous materials – including spores, viruses, bacteria, and other disease-causing organisms – can manifest as a result of sewer backup, mold damage, and more. We have the advanced training and equipment to provide complete cleaning, sanitizing and disposal services.

Break-ins and destruction of municipal property by intruders and vandals happen every day. We provide emergency services to secure municipal buildings and recommend the steps required to restore them to their pre-loss condition.
