In the fall of 2017, flooding after Hurricane Irma devastated the San Marco area of Jacksonville on the south bank of the St. Johns River. Group 4 Design was one small business which rose above the flood waters coming back better than ever. Most of the interior, except for the brick walls and metal ceiling tiles, were not salvageable and needed to be replaced. The business wanted to utilize 3500 SF of office area and maintain 1500 SF of warehouse that could remain available for potential future growth. All improvements needed to stay within the budget of the reimbursement of insurance.
CFD + Novalis reached out to our clients at Group 4 Design and offered flooring for their office rebuild just days after the flood. Group 4 graciously accepted the offer and selected NovaFloor.
The client was very happy and thankful with the final result despite some challenges with moisture in the floor. We worked with Designer Lifestyles to make sure the finished product looked beautiful. This project went on to win an award at the 2019 IIDA NFL Chapter Illuminate Awards – Honorable Mention in the Corporate Design category.
