Roof repairs steady in Fort Smith; downtown construction permitted

Fort Smith Building Safety Division issued more than 180 permits for roof repairs this week, about $2.4 million in value, along with several repairs and remodel projects around town.
Randall Ford, 5500 Rogers Ave., was among the many Fort Smith businesses and homes damaged from a heavy hail storm April 29. Construction Masters will repair the Ford dealership's roof for about $135,000.
Other large commercial roof repair jobs include those at 2200 S. Waldron Road for $45,000 and 10300 Jenny Lind Road for $65,000.
Steven Almond, plans examiner for Building Safety, created a line item box to better keep track of the hundreds of roof repair permits. There have been well over 2,000 issued since May. For the past several weeks, roof repair valuations in each building permits report have been more than $2 million.
Petree Construction is permitted for a "modular building project" at 601 N. Eighth St. The valuation is $64,511. Future School of Fort Smith founder and CEO Trish Flanagan said last that modular buildings for extra classroom space would be delivered in the coming weeks for the city's first charter school. The building at 622 N. Seventh St. was once home to Girls Inc. and has been vacant for many years. Petree Construction in Fort Smith was permitted two weeks ago for a $235,000 remodeling job at the charter school, which is expected to begin classes in mid-August.
The Steps Family Resource Center at 708 Garrison Ave. was also permitted for $170,000 in remodeling work by Edwards Construction Co. A variance request for the project to create more office space at the Friedman-Wegman Building came before the Central Business Improvement District last month and was approved. The existing storefront on the 1890s building has a glass display area with a recessed entry not believed to be original. The request from property owners Hooks Properties stated the aluminum glass display case was possibly installed in the 1940s.
The Stephens Production Building at 623 Garrison Ave. will also see $10,500 in repairs. Almond said the work was for new windows. The building holds the city administration offices.
A Buddhist center at 4625 Armour Ave. is also set to receive $73,150 in work by Crawford Construction.
