LEI is Ready to Undertake Any Disaster
Hurricane Wilma Disaster Recovery
U.S. Naval Air Stations in Key West
When hurricane Wilma struck
Key West, Florida in November of 2005 a significant number of families
were displaced from their homes due to a ten foot storm surge that swept
over the lower keys, including our U.S. Naval bases. The task to be accepted
was to allow the men and women of our armed forces to return to their homes
as soon as possible. Not only were homes and apartments flooded, but also
the training facilities, restaurants, and retail enterprises in the area.
Shortly after the Hurricane,
Lang Environmental (LEI) was awarded a contract with KBR to conduct asbestos
abatement and mold remediation services at the U.S. Naval facilities. We
mobilized that day to start the project. LEI arrived in Key West being
one of four abatement contractors (the other three firms are nationally
ranked in the top 200 of their class according to ENR) to conduct services
for KBR. Starting with 30 technicians to begin the remediation process,
LEI was the last of the contractors to demobilize. We became the preferred
contractor for the following reasons:
With the above standards put
in place LEI’s staff grew in size to over 140. LEI started as the smallest
contractor on site and through our performance eventually became the last
and preferred contractor to perform all the services for KBR at the U.S.
Naval facilities. The project duration was approximately 4 months and after
all final close out and de-mobilization was complete, the final contract
value was over $6.5 million.
