Preparing for Recovery: Efficient Tools for Repairing and Strengthening Facilities

Preparing for Recovery: Efficient Tools for Repairing and Strengthening Facilities

Disasters and crises never wait until it’s convenient or we’re fully prepared to strike. They occur unexpectedly, bringing havoc that everyday operations aren’t built to handle and surprise infrastructure damages that aren’t convenient for any budget. So when an unexpected situation does arise, having a pre-determined plan for alternative procurement is necessary to ensure a speedy recovery.

Traditional construction procurement methods tend to move slowly, especially when supply chains and labor pools are bottlenecked in the wake of a flood, tornado, fire or outbreak. A best practice is to proactively plan for catastrophe situations by already having an alternative procurement program in place. Doing so will help you get your facilities repaired, renovated and back up and running quickly with immediate access to local, quality contractors.
