Healthcare Hurricane Damage Restoration

Cotton repaired and replaced damaged drywall, flooring, and framing.

Healthcare Hurricane Damage Restoration

Following a major hurricane in Florida, the rooms of a local hospital suffered extensive wind and water damages to the walls, ceilings, and floors. Cotton Global Disaster Solutions was contracted to provide mitigation, restoration, and construction services in the facility with little to no business interruption. Prior to starting the project, Cotton GDS provided a detailed SOW and worked with the client’s insurance adjuster to develop a strict project timeline. The project was not only completed ahead of schedule, but it was also completed under budget.

Due to the fluidity of hospital patient care and the varying Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) protocols for each room, Cotton GDS worked with Subject Matter Experts to ensure the work was completed safely and in a timely manner. These professionals consisted of a third-party Industrial Hygienist, the hospital’s Emergency Management Coordinator, the Head Nurse of Infectious Disease Control, inspectors, and an architectural firm specializing in Florida ACHA Standards. Cotton GDS’s ability to collaborate with each Subject Matter Expert allowed them to exceed expectations on strict ACHA standards and have zero breaches of ICRA standards.
