Commercial Reconstruction & Recovery After Any Disaster
Our IICRC-certified technicians evaluate the entire site down to the structural core. We create a plan that recovers, repairs, and rebuilds damaged aspects of your building.
When your property is damaged or needs capital improvements, it’s important to make sure it is rebuilt to existing health, safety, and building standards. Even minor damage can be triggered by a major underlying and unseen issue. ATI’s structural repair and building reconstruction team combines the expertise of large-scale general contractors with over 30 years of experience in disaster mitigation and restoration.
Qualified to Oversee Every Aspect of Reconstruction
Following a disaster, our general contractors and emergency response crews are available to help when you need assistance following a natural disaster. With teams of reconstruction experts located across the country, we can be ready to assist with your reconstruction goals and make recommendations for other needs.
The most critical factor in recovering from a disaster is time. In our experience, the longer it takes to respond to a disaster, the higher the cost of recovery. ATI has developed a tool to help you recover quickly from a disaster. Our Emergency Response Agreement (ERA) provides for priority service in times of peak demand, providing for rapid response and efficient recovery. Our ERAs feature pre-determined pricing, taking the guesswork out of your recovery budget process. An ERA from ATI can be an important part of your Disaster Recovery Plan, providing peace of mind should an unfortunate disaster event occur.
Disaster Recovery Planning is often an afterthought. For those entities that are fortunate enough to have a plan, many times it has been developed without the benefit of a Disaster Recovery firm. ATI has helped thousands of clients prepare for and recover from disaster events. When identifying your Disaster Recovery Team of internal and external stakeholders, be sure to include more than one Disaster Recovery provider. This will ensure that you are adequately prepared if an emergency or disaster occurs.
Emergencies and disasters often pose major challenges to smaller companies. These challenges can impact their ability to respond quickly, staff the work, and deal effectively with a myriad of resulting environmental issues.
Small firms and franchises often have limited local resources and can be quickly overwhelmed. Their resources may be adequate for day-to-day events, but when dealing with a large-scale disaster or widespread emergency storm event, small teams can quickly find themselves overwhelmed. With multiple emergencies occurring at once, small firms and franchises may not be able to respond at all.
For larger emergency and disaster events, larger firms with scalability are critical. With more resources readily available at their disposal, larger Disaster Recovery firms will:
• Implement a quick response & recovery plan
• Limit operational interruption
• Contain and mitigate environmental, toxic or biological exposures
• Be in full compliance with regulations to avoid unnecessary fines & penalties
• Safeguard all stakeholders from potential illness or injury
When identifying your Disaster Recovery Team of internal and external stakeholders, be sure to include one or more large Disaster Recovery providers. This will ensure that you are adequately prepared if a larger-scale disaster occurs.
Knowledge and skill are beneficial if you need to reconstruct a property after a disaster. A reconstruction team is prepared to act quickly and identify barriers to success. They will remove debris, prepare the site, and then create plans to execute your vision.
When required, ATI’s Project Manager will take out the appropriate permit(s) on your behalf. If applicable, permit fees are included in the estimate and may be covered by the insurance company.
It is an upgrade that is made when your property’s pre-loss condition no longer meets current, legal building codes. Your insurance company may recognize code upgrades in the estimation process. Any questions regarding code upgrades should be directed to your insurance adjuster.
After a natural disaster or accident, contact the team at ATI so we can assess your property. We will work closely with your insurance company and its adjusters and make recommendations for recovering materials, removing debris, and reconstructing your property.
You will likely need the advice of a professional to make this decision. Many buildings that appear destroyed beyond repair are salvageable, and vice versa. Contact ATI’s disaster recovery services to understand the best course of action.
