October 24, 2021 tornado EF3 extended from Farmington to Chester, IL. Brewery roof was torn off and masonry walls from original gym were left standing. There was no information available about the building design so it was decided to build over the existing structure and brewery tanks.
Ice buildup on roof caused roof joists to break and ceiling to start sagging. Temporary wall was installed to support roof. Complete demolition of interior was required to install new beams and columns to support roof. Contract included build back to original finish.
Fire and smoke damage required complete interior restoration plus insulation and roof replacement.
