Each year, hurricane season presents a challenge to contractors and developers along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts as they face the risk of impacts from significant weather. Hurricanes Michael, Irma, Harvey and Florence are only the most recent reminders of how devastating one of these storms can be. With the construction industry being as active as it is, projects in storm-prone areas should be prepared to deal with and minimize the physical and financial risks that come along with these storms.
I was recently able to share my insight about what project teams can do to deal with a storm before, during and after a hit in Multifamily Executive Magazine. Planning and preparation make all the difference in ensuring that a construction site is secured, ready and capable of quickly rebounding from a hurricane. Here’s hoping to a quiet hurricane season.
