Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Effort Wins Project of Year

October 31 2014

Conti ‘s Hurricane Sandy Rapid Repair Project in Staten Island, New York was named Project of the Year from the Engineering News-Record New York Region in the Specialty Contracting category. Conti provided emergency repairs for residents whose homes were affected by the super storm.

In response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, Conti worked closely with the New York City Department of Environmental Protection to repair internal and external damage to the residencies. Conti’s previous experience in providing disaster recovery and debris removal for communities after Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Isaac provided the know-how to mobilize and build a team of 400 employees in just one month to repair the damage to over 1,000 homes.

Engineering News-Record’s New York Construction annual competition recognizes construction excellence from across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. An independent panel of six industry leaders judged over 50 nominated projects.
