Hurricane Disaster Recovery

Trusted advisors guiding you through disaster recovery.

The devastating impacts of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have wreaked havoc on communities, businesses, infrastructure, real estate and energy delivery systems throughout the Gulf Coast and Southeast. The road to recovery will be long and there are many challenges to overcome. Flood ravaged schools, buildings, highways, reservoirs and sewer systems must all be assessed and possibly rebuilt. The risk of environmental contamination from impacted Superfund sites, chemical plants and refineries is not yet known. Downed power lines and damaged transmission systems are dangerous and customers are in the dark.

In the wake of disaster, TRC has the experience and the expertise to address even your most complex energy, environmental and infrastructure challenges. We understand your goals and embrace them as our own, applying creativity, integrity and dedication to deliver superior results. Our multidisciplinary teams of engineers, scientists, planners, and compliance professionals leverage cutting edge technologies including drones and real-time field data collection tools to design solutions that get you operational  again, faster and efficiently.

TRC also has extensive experience working with insurers as well as policy holders on large losses. We can provide defendable data and documentation regarding the loss, which can assist in claims processing.
