Garver picked to assist Texas National Guard in Hurricane Harvey repairs
The impact of Hurricane Harvey has left more than a million residents of southeast Texas without homes, and even more facing a long recovery period. The Texas Military Department (TMD) is leading that recovery effort, with about 12,000 guardsmen deployed to assist those in Houston and surrounding areas who were impacted from the Category 4 storm that made landfall on Aug. 25.
While the TMD, which heads the Texas Army and Air National Guard, focuses on that effort, its own installations were also affected by the storms and are in need of repairs. Garver, which counts Houston and eight others in Texas among its 23 nationwide offices, has been contracted by the TMD to assess 21 installations in the state that have suffered damage because of the storm that created 130 mph winds and 40-52 inches of rainfall.
The installations are located in 16 different Texas cities – as far west as San Antonio, as far north as Huntsville, as well as La Marque and La Porte along the coast – and the work will be used to establish plans for future projects for facility maintenance, repairs, and updates for the installations to return to operational readiness. The completed work will provide a thorough evaluation of facility condition, and specific damage that resulted from Hurricane Harvey.
Work is scheduled to begin this month.
“The Texas Military Department is doing important work in helping the citizens of Texas recover from this devastating storm,” Garver Director of Federal Services Wallace Smith said. “To make sure that they’re able to continue to do this work, their installations need to be fully operational. Garver is proud to assist the Texas Military Department in this effort.”
