Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita, Delta’s team of engineers and construction professionals were retained and quickly deployed to provide damage assessments for approximately 80 New Orleans Public Schools.  As a result of our thorough assessments, we were retained to perform project management services in the second phase.

Managing the construction and working with two school authorities with limited resources, we acted as the owner’s representative onsite; managing the reconstruction effort. As construction progressed, the severity of the damage was revealed through latent defects.  We provided cost engineering and contract administration services, minimizing the cost impact to the owner.

Delta successfully coordinated the requirements of the contract, enabling the schools to reopen and start serving the needs of the children of New Orleans.
