Our professional staff and consultants have responded to more than 100 earthquake and hurricane events in the past 30 years. We provide crucial post disaster activities, including structural safety assessment, damage assessment, damage data collection, retrieval of critical documents, debris management, human capacity building, establishment of assessment technical platforms, and development of reconstruction strategies. We are the only professional structural engineering-expert consultant organization in the world that provides immediate and permanent support system for all major disasters.
In Haiti, we worked with the Ministry of Public Works, the UNOPS and Pan American Development Foundation to conduct an earthquake damage assessment program on an unprecedented 400,000 buildings. We set up a technical platform and trained 600 Haitian engineers under extreme post disaster conditions. This program was the world’s first to use a personal digital assistant (PDA) database management technique to provide real-time information to key disaster response and recovery organizations.
We are making a positive impact and safeguarding lives though engineering and compassion. As a global leader in engineering, partnering with the World Bank, United Nations, USAID, and various NGOs, we continually respond to disasters to help restore safety. We are experts in building a nation’s engineering capacity to respond to disasters.
