Schools and Universities
Interstate has the resources for any type of project. We’ve established partnerships nationally to ensure that students and faculty return to their educational environment as quickly as possible. This includes a team with an average of 19+ years’ experience and state-of-the-art equipment.
In addition to fire or flood damage, our team knows the hazards that can be in place at universities and colleges such as chemicals or other tools used for teaching or in labs. Safety is our first priority. Interstate can help you develop a safe and scalable plan that takes the right approach to responding to and handling any type of disaster including hazardous material caused by a science experiment gone awry. And if your facility team needs a helping hand to handle any type of disaster, Interstate will safely handle the job, communicating every step of the way so your facility crews are empowered to make smart decisions.
