Earlier this year, medical supply company Norco built a brand new, state-of-the-art facility for its medical and industrial divisions near Eagle Rd. and Overland Rd.
That left a 48,000 square foot office and warehouse building a few miles away on Eagle Rd. near Ustick Rd. vacant. Soon, cleanup and restoration business SERVPRO of Boise will remodel and take that space over.
And in the third domino, local HVAC company Diamond Heating and Cooling will upgrade to SERVPRO’s soon-to-be-former location in Garden City near Westvet.
All three moves are driven by growing service businesses as the Treasure Valley’s economy continues to expand.
“For us, it’s driven by the growth of Boise,” SERVPRO Boise owner Chris Isaacson said. “There’s a need for higher quality restoration and remodeling services. We pride ourselves on bringing a higher level of quality and interaction and communication.”
With the purchase of the building and an upcoming remodel added together, Isaacson is investing more than $5 million in the upgrade of the old Norco building. That will allow for an advanced training facility to be added to his facilities lineup.
“Boise doesn’t have access to the same training as some of the larger metro areas,” he said. “We will now have a world-class training facility that will give restoration profs unprecedented access to training. It is going to knock people’s socks off.”
He said the new building will give them easier access to clients all over the Valley – with easier access to Interstate 84.
SERVPRO says it is looking to staff up and hire another five to ten people. The company plans to add some additional service lines once it is up and running in the new building.
SERVPRO hopes to be moved into its new home later this year.
