Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX
Tropical Storm Allison devastated southeast Texas in 2001. This highly regarded medical school, and leading center for biomedical research, was inundated with floodwaters to its first floor and subgrade levels. Significantly impacted was the animal research area, which housed laboratory animals and testing facilities. Structural drying, decontamination and disposal of medically contaminated waste were integral parts of the restoration operation and the cleaning requirements, all of which were predicated on meeting or exceeding standards as required for this type of facility.
Baylor Memorial Hospital Houston, Houston, TX
As a result of Tropical Storm Allison in 2001, this medical facility located in downtown Houston sustained significant flood related damages to the lower and subgrade levels of the structure. Additionally, the medical records portion of the facility was impacted requiring a large-scale document restoration and freeze-drying program inclusive of the processing of x-rays and various other filmed records.
Guam Memorial Hospital, Tamuning, Guam
The Guam Memorial Hospital sustained damages from Typhoon Pongsona in 2003, largely confined to the Emergency Room area and doctor office buildings located in close proximity to the hospital campus. Due to the degree of damage throughout the island, and the resulting limited availability of medical services, a fast track approach to the necessary structural drying and remediation was critical to this project.
Harlingen Medical Center, Harlingen TX
This new facility was experiencing mold growth in 2004. As Consultant, we determined the causation of the mold as a series of construction defects. This saved the insurance company over $11 million.
MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX
The basement of this research hospital was flooded from Tropical Storm Allison in 2001. The basement housed medical records and 100,000 tissue samples of different cancer tumors encased in paraffin wax. Wrote the scope of work for the restoration of the documents, as well as the restoration of the structure and dehumidification plan. Also developed a unique method to transport, disinfect and keep reliable all tissue samples. The value of saving the tissue samples was immeasurable.
Medical Center of Southeast Texas, Port Arthur, TX
Hurricane Rita in 2005 caused damage to approximately 400,000 sq. ft. of this hospital, including its medical equipment. Wrote SOW, clerk and controlled this loss. The total NTE was over $9 million; the net cost based on our efforts was invoiced at less than $3 million.

Good Samaritan Medical Center, and St. Mary’s Medical Center, West Palm Beach, FL
Prolonged loss of power and wind driven rains, related to the hurricanes of 2004, resulted in significant damages to both properties owned by Tenet Healthcare. Significantly impacted were patient rooms and much of the surgical areas necessitating a complete structural drying and temporary humidity control effort, along with a thorough and detailed cleaning of structure, content and fixtures to hospital standards. Rigorous cleaning protocols were established and complied with by post remediation sampling for biological contaminants and cleared via third party testing and release.
Transgenic Mouse Research Laboratory, Houston, TX
This 300,000 sq. ft. research laboratory was flooded from Tropical Storm Allison. Project Managed and devised the protocol for this delicate loss involving over 100,000 mice and other rodents used in genetic disease research. The Cleanroom environment had unique requirements to ensure that the mice were not disturbed. The successful restoration of the facility included altering the flow of the electric to the equipment to prevent exciting the mice.
