January 21, 2014 // Franchising.com // Milwaukee, Wis. - The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) has named Paul Davis Restoration and Remodeling of Southeast Wisconsin as a winner in a variety of 2013 Wisconsin Remodeler Award (WRA) categories. Specifically, the company was honored with a Gold Award for the Bourbon and Tunns Tavern in the Disaster Fire Restoration category. Paul Davis also won Silver awards for a local, residential bathroom remodeling project from $30,000 to $60,000 and a local residential kitchen remodeling project from $40,000 to $80,000.
The awards were presented for projects completed in the Milwaukee area in 2013. Paul Davis Restoration and Remodeling of Southeast Wisconsin is a member of the NARI Milwaukee, WI Chapter. The company’s project management and marketing team members accepted the honors on January 17 at the annual Milwaukee/NARI Wisconsin Remodelers and Local Achievement Awards banquet held at the Intercontinental Hotel in Milwaukee.
"We are honored to accept the awards for projects that were judged by an impartial panel of experts within the industry and allied fields," said Dan Druml, president and owner of the local Paul Davis franchise office. Druml’s team submitted before-and-after photos and descriptions. Awards were based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty, and entry presentations. "We greatly appreciate our key employees who are responsible for many award-winning restoration and remodeling projects throughout the region," said Druml.
Specifically, the WRA 2013 Gold award was presented for Paul Davis’ high-profile fire damage and remodeling work at the historic Bourbon & Tunns Tavern in the Third Ward. The three-story bar, restaurant, banquet hall, kitchen and basement of the Tavern was severely damaged by a late night chemical fire in the basement. The fire burned for 30 minutes without a source of ventilation, which allowed the fire to smolder throughout the 7,860 square foot building.
Paul Davis was immediately called upon for emergency services, along with fire, soot, and smoke damage restoration, and odor removal. The company completed extensive and complex repairs, restoration and remodeling throughout the structure. Additionally, the electrical system was updated while addressing code and convenience factors. The remodeling project represents Paul Davis’ award-winning design and construction achievements in southeast Wisconsin for more than 20 years. For more information, call 414.383.3131.
