Small Works Division

McBride sweats the small stuff too...

A truck hits a grocery store | A bathtub overflows | A space heater burns a bedroom | A tree falls on a roof | A sprinkler head pops... A circuit overloads | A thousand times a year, wherever, whenever we're needed, McBride employees are there swiftly and safely.

Inn at Seventh Mountain

Luxury resort residence units

Two fires in two years to two different buildings. And a lesson in fast-track reconstruction. Repairs in the first building took one year to complete using conventional construction processes. McBride completed the second, identical building in 17 weeks, saving several hundred thousand dollars in lost income.

A fire burns over 45,000 square feet of a five-acre potato processing plant. Production losses are running to millions of pounds per day. Rebuiding requirements include concrete tilt-up, steel trusses, special coatings and massive electrical. Speed and coordination are a must. And it better work right when it's done.

80-man bunkhouse, kitchen, dining room and warehouse for fish processing operation

A remote cannery - in the Aleutian Islands - has a major fire in the middle of winter. The salmon season starts in 20 weeks. The Business Interruption losses could run in the millions if the project isn't ready when the fish are. The entire construction job - bunkhouse, kitchen, warehouse - completed on time and on budget.

Restaurant

The only upscale restaurant in Kennewick. A six-month fast-track job in mid-winter on an exposed post-and-beam structure -- high-end carpentry on an island in the middle of the Columbia River.

Polson Building

Commercial Office Building

A fire-damaged building, 100,000 square feet -- major seismic upgrades, a metal skeleton inside a historic brick skin -- in the Pioneer Square District, so historic guidelines were an ever-present companion.
