Staten Island Structural Damage Assessments

We have navigated the complexities of the various local municipalities (totaling 14 individual cities, towns and villages), various vendors assigned to both design and construction management of GOSR’s recovery effort as well as the unique challenges of also managing and meeting the expectations of the private home owner. 

It should also be noted that time frames for the following two headings, “Residential Reconstruction” and “Residential Repair and Elevate” had extremely aggressive completion requirements.  It required our firm to order and secure all surveys, geo technical and other field conditions, meet with home owners, create and have a design approved, and then prepare a filing package with the local municipalities all inside of 60 days.  Over the course of 150 homes, we are proud to say that we met every deadline imposed on us.
