Summary: On February 18th, 2010 a fire broke out at South Bay Elementary School, destroying an estimated 80% of the school. Within four days the school was able to rent space from Our Lady of Grace Church, and within the same time frame Nickerson provided furniture to the rented facility. This quick action ensured minimal disruption to student’s learning, and ensured a comfortable and functional temporary home for the school.

During the next two years Nickerson worked with Belfor Restoration to refurnish the destroyed school. Every classroom was outfitted with new Campbell Rhea Wood Casework, and Art and Music Rooms received new Plastic Laminate Casework.  The cafeteria was supplied with new Palmer Hamilton tables. All classrooms received Virco furniture, featuring activity tables and story book areas, ideal elementary education. Lastly, all of the school offices were outfitted with new HON office furniture. All of this was completed on time for the school to reopen for the 2011-2012 school year and under budget.
