Projects

Services offered after Hurricane Katrina and Rita:

 

During Hurricanes Katrina & Rita the Team provided QA/QC Debris Monitoring to the Corps of Engineers for a  project in Orleans Parish, and for (2) Corps of Engineers’ prime contractors’ major projects. These projects required the team to mobilize several hundred persons to provide the menu of Debris Monitoring, Assessment, Project Safety and Quality Control Management services including Quality Control Supervision, Contractor Oversight, Overall Site Safety Management, Disposal Site Management and Pre- and Post- PPDR Assessments.

Our experience with hurricanes such as Katrina, Rita and Sandy, the earthquake in Haiti and the terror attack at the Westgate Mall in Kenya has taught us that planning and training for these types of events is critical to the success of the response. The ECM Team can provide clients with a comprehensive Disaster Preparedness Plan that will minimize loss and allow for rapid

assessment and deployment of resources.

Disaster Management Projects

ECM, along with  team members P-Strada and Solutient , have partnered with disaster management companies such as Louis Berger, Novaces and Homeland Intelligence Technologies to provide world-class services to it's clients. Examples of past performance:
 

  • During Hurricanes Katrina Rita ECM provided QA/QC Debris Monitoring to the Corps of Engineers for a project in Orleans Parish, and similar projects for Corps of Engineers’ prime contractors’ major projects. These projects required the team to mobilize several hundred persons to provide the menu of Debris Monitoring, Assessment, Project Safety and Quality Control Management services including Quality Control Supervision, Contractor Oversight, Overall Site Safety Management, Disposal Site Management and Pre- and Post- Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) Assessments. These Orleans Parish  projects involved the demolition of hundreds of structures and selective salvage of specific items of historical significance in conjunction with the decommissioning, demolition and debris removal in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local requirements. The contract required the repair of all roadways, sidewalks, utilities, drainage structures and other features not designated for demolition or removal, which were damaged by contractor operations.

 

  • As part of the Make IT Right Foundation – non-profit founded by Brad Pitt in 2007 to aid in the environmentally friendly rebuilding of New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward after Katrina – worked to provide modular housing for displaced residents.

 

  • After the earthquake in Haiti in 2012, ECM, along with the PHS Group and USAID, provided PM oversight, performed security vulnerability site assessments and provided value engineering and housing modifications to provide shelter for displaced residents. ECM also developed constructability reviews, comprehensive damage assessment and cost estimates for orphanage reconstruction, the airport runway, road systems, hospital rehabilitation, and waterline development.

 

  • As part of the Emergency Response Team for the terrorist attack at the Westgate Mall in Kenya in 2013, the ECM Team contracted with the Regional Disaster Management Center of Excellent (RDMCOE) under the leadership of Col Shem Amadi. The team was charged with developing a strategic plan/strategic objectives and participating in the implementation of the mission plan to strengthen the regional capacity for disaster mitigation, preparedness and response, as well as reduce disaster impact through enhanced regional capacity and cooperation and boost disaster management capability for sustainable regional development.
