Hilton Guam, Tumon Bay, Guam
Typhoon Pongsona hit the Island nation of Guam in 2003 leaving catastrophic damages in its wake. The Hilton Guam Resort sustained varying degrees of wind driven rain in moderate to heavy levels, penetrating the building exterior. Restoration services considered the provision of temporary power and desiccant dehumidification, along with structural demolition of directly impacted soft finishes such as sheetrock and carpet. After demolition, a thorough cleaning and decontamination of the support structure and substrates was accomplished under the guidance of the CIH firm providing oversight and clearance.
Holiday Inn Resort, Montego Bay, Jamaica
Assessed the salvageable soft goods (bedding, draperies, mattresses, upholstery, etc.) that were affected after Hurricane Gilbert hit here in 1988. Met the challenge of finding the correct methodology that would eliminate the mold and mildew to the satisfaction of the insured’s Corporate Franchise Risk Manager. Established protocols for successful restoration, wrote SOW, created a training program and a critical path for the insured’s employees to follow.
Hyatt Regency, Tumon, Guam
Extensive demolition of soft structural surfaces, as well as desiccant drying of the structure, was provided through the restoration process after damages from Typhoon Pongsona in 2003. Due to occupancy requirements at the height of the season, the work was approached in a phased plan that maximized the accommodation of incoming tourists, and minimized business interruption.
Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas, NV
This famous 1981 hotel fire was brought back quickly, sparing the city of Las Vegas a potentially devastating blow to its economy, thanks to the efforts of the Project Management team. This project catapulted the restoration industry into handling large commercial losses by a single contractor.
New York Palace Hotel, New York, NY
Prepared the scope and bid specification package used by the insured to elect a qualified contractor to clean this 1,000-room hotel, damaged by fire and smoke in 1995. Established a reasonable costing profile for structure and content restoration, and offered restorability opinions used by insurance carriers in the settlement.
Regent Wall Street Hotel, New York, NY
This was a luxury 5 Star Hotel and hospitality facility located near the end of Wall Street and Pearl. It sustained significant damages as a result of dust infiltration related to the collapse of the World Trade Towers on 9/11/01. One of the first projects undertaken while the massive logistical considerations were contemplated for the ground zero effort. All rooms, common areas, the celebrated 12,000 sq. ft. ballroom, meeting rooms and service areas were thoroughly cleaned and decontaminated on a fast track basis to enable the hotel to house and provide meeting spaces for some of the 9/11 response community.
Shangri La Barr Al Jissah Resort, Muscat, Oman
Tropical Cyclone Gonu struck the Shangri la Barr Al Jissah Resort in 2007, resulting in significant wind driven rain and moisture penetration to this 5 Star Resort. With projected occupancy at seasonal high levels, fast track structural drying and restoration were required to minimize loss of occupancy and related business interruption expenses.
Sheraton New Orleans, New Orleans, LA
As a result of wind driven rain from Hurricane Katrina in 2005, which penetrated the exterior of the property, a significant portion of the guest rooms and common areas sustained water damage and apparent microbial growth. Restoration efforts consisted of structural drying, minor demolition of AMG impacted surfaces, and a thorough cleaning and treatment of the affected areas. In addition, as the Sheraton was used to house government officials including ATF, the FBI and other agencies, temporary water and power services were provided in order to occupy the facility in the near term for critical recovery agencies.
South Seas Resort, Captiva Island, FL
As Hurricane Charley approached the western coastline of Florida in 2004, it paused over the outer islands including Sanibel and Captiva for about 30 minutes, causing enormous damage to the buildings and landscaping. Project managed the contractors hired to restore and remediate the 65 hotel buildings on this 300-acre resort. The scope included dehumidification, cleaning, and mold remediation.
Vista Hotel, New York, NY
The terrorist bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993, sent smoke throughout this 800 room hotel. Restoration efforts were performed simultaneously while working on the final phase of the World Trade Center project. As a result of the bombing, located in the subterranean parking facilities, the vertical blast directly impacted the lower floor ballroom and meeting room areas inclusive of the retail shops and restaurants. Complicating the project, restoration scheduling had to accommodate the structural inspections by engineering experts, as well as the investigation process conducted by the ATF as lead investigators for the government.
