The 2004 storms that devastated the Florida coast created damage along many coastal communities. The South Seas Resort was especially hard hit with a complete shut down of resort operation. CCI was contracted to perform the microbial removal of 110 condominium units, 12 retail locations, a fitness club, 30 resort housing units, a restaurant, and several miscellaneous use buildings located on the resort property. CCI’s scope included complete interior demolition, microbial removal including sanitation, and encapsulation. All work was performed using negative pressure containments. CCI worked as an extension of the site management team, providing direction and management of this portion of the work. CCI’s project team completed the project slightly ahead of schedule with zero safety incidents.
As a subcontractor to Shaw E&I, CCI responded under an emergency response scenario to aid in the build-out of former military dormitories to house 2,000 Hurricane Katrina evacuees. CCI mobilized management personnel within 13 hours of the initial request for response and within 48 hours mobilized 240 removal technicians to perform the mold removal of more than 600,000 square feet of living space. The work included the removal of mold within two dormitories, two kitchens, four meal-serving areas, the education building, a medical clinic, and a gymnasium. In addition to the surface area mold removal, CCI managed the removal of mold and the cleaning of the HVAC systems throughout the facilities. The original three-week schedule was compressed to one week. CCI maintained the schedule and completed the all tasks ahead of schedule and budget.
