Phasor's Emergency Response Team Repair Damaged TC Matthews Showroom caused by Storm Ophelia

20181128 Phasors Emergency Response Team Repair Damaged TC Matthews 1a

On October 9th 2017, Storm Ophelia caused colossal damage throughout Ireland. It brought winds of 185km per hour, forcing the whole country into lock down. Phasor’s Emergency Response Team were quickly put to work, when TC Matthews Carpets contacted our team. The side wall of their showroom in Walkinstown, Dublin was stripped away during the destructive weather. Phasor's Emergency Team are specifically trained to work in harsh weather conditions, so we were well positioned to respond quickly and efficiently.
Our crew removed the cladding which had fallen out onto the public road and made the area safe again. It was essential to make the area secure for the public, TC Matthews employees and traffic.
Over the following 2 days, we put a temporary weather proof solution in place to protect the stock in the warehouse. Gas line integrity testing was also completed, and the gas pipework was removed from the external façade of the building. This was a necessary step to prevent any possible gas leaks.

We then prepared the necessary reporting and associated costings for TC Matthews' insurance company. These reports were for the permanent repair of the building on the two sides. New Kingspan panels were supplied, fitted and all old panelling removed from the site. The gas pipework was re-instated, and the building was handed back to TC Matthews, as good as new.
That day, our team showed great strength, determination and expertise. Not only did they rectify the building’s exterior, but their main priority was to secure the site and maintain a safe area for the public. Though working in these extreme weather conditions is incredibly tough, it is all part of the work our emergency team do on a regular basis and we are very proud to have such a highly skilled workforce.
