In April of 2018, Tucson icon Micha’s Restaurant was destroyed by a fire that took less than 23 minutes to consume much of the building.
Caylor Construction was hired for the rebuild and began immediately with a quick-response clean up aimed at salvaging what could be saved. Since it was important to everyone that the restaurant be rebuilt as close to the original as possible, we recreated the plans from the 70’s and updated them to conform to new building codes. We worked closely with multiple governing agencies to get Micha’s back up and running as quickly as possible.
Our biggest challenge came in holding down costs given the extent and complexity of the fire’s destruction. We had to completely rebuild the roof and kitchen with new fire sprinklers and the installation of a new state-of-the-art stainless-steel exhaust hood. We restored all four dining rooms, and were especially excited to salvage the Patio Bar and keep its distinctive old family charm (although we did raise the ceiling while we were at it). A lot of our trusted sub-contractors were eager to help on the project, knowing that so many families depended on the restaurant.
We are so proud of how the rebuild was completed…and the fact that Micha’s families and friends can once again enjoy all their favorite recipes prepared by loving hands in a stunning new state-of-the-art kitchen.
The Ronald McDonald House is a nonprofit organization that provides a comfortable home-away-from-home for families with critically ill children who travel to Tucson for medical care. After 11 years and thousands of family visits, their guest rooms needed some work.
Caylor Construction replaced all the flooring, lighting and bathroom fixtures, repainted and generally spruced up every inch of every guest room. “Since we are nonprofit, we are very careful with expenses, as all our revenue comes from donors," said Kate Jensen, President and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities, “Caylor bid the project with a competitive price and Rob and his team have been delightful to work with. Their work has been excellent, on time and on budget.”
Being an active, contributing member of our community is important to us. We are proud to support numerous local organizations – and help them however we can – with the tremendous work they do for so many in our community.
