An electrical malfunction caused a two-alarm fire through the roof at The Leumass Condominium, a four-story historic building originally constructed in 1906 as a single-family home. The fire started on the roof and spread to the third floor. Fortunately, no tenants were injured in the fire and a team was brought in quickly to perform emergency services.
When the fire department broke the glass of the building’s front door, Minkoff coordinated security and staff for overnight fire watch. Later we were contracted to reconstruct and renovate the entire building which proved to be a difficult task. First, because we had to adhere to strict historic guidelines. Second, due to the tight quarters surrounding the building and lack of parking was impossible for staging of equipment, and lastly, there were challenges working with the city to do so. After being damaged by fire, smoke, and water new walk-up private decks were built on the rooftop enhancing each penthouse.
