Following the unprecedented flooding of a large, national river, a Casino was impacted by over 24 inches of muddy water that inundated the entire first floor. Cotton was able to alert the venue of the impending flood and they were able to move and de-inventory their location prior to the waters rise, preventing further damage and limiting business interruption. Cotton utilized its state-of-the-art Watch Center to inform the client of real-time weather updates, site conditions, flood stage information, and high-impact event areas. Cotton tracked the storm and determined an operational window that allowed the Emergency Response Team to get close to the facility without being caught in the path of flooding.
Once floodwaters receded, Cotton immediately began removing all damaged material and cleaning the affected areas. Carpet, tile flooring, and drywall were all removed while the facility was prepped for the reconstruction process. Cotton implemented strategic remediation, necessary equipment, and experienced personnel to get the casino operational in less than 30-days.
