Familiarity with Restoration and Resiliency Projects

Due to our experience with numerous Hurricane Sandy related restoration and resiliency projects, we understand the technical issues, the options and alternatives, and the approach to determine recommendations that are suitable for each project.  We are familiar with the Design Flood Elevation (DFE) and its effect on the design of the mechanical/electrical systems. We also understand the procedures and preparation of options along with a Cost Benefit Analysis for these project types.
