Hurricane Preparedness Plan Template

Matt Wheeler

Group Leader

On our most recent project with Stacy, we were hired to provide engineering design services for the revitalization of a university theatre complex in response to the hurricanes that caused extensive damage to numerous facilities throughout the Caribbean. Through the comprehensive use of mobile survey technologies her team was able to relay survey conditions in real time, allowing minimal interruption to our design group's workflow. Stacy's communication skills, organization of tasks, and client management provided for a smooth design delivery and she would be a great partner for anyone with the opportunity to work with her.

I highly recommend Stacy Bourne to any client, institutional or private, to both design facilities to resist damage from high winds and rain, and create and lead design professionals to plan and execute recovery from hurricane damage. Experience is a great teacher. I have worked first hand with Stacy on analysis of extreme damage conditions from multiple Cat 5 hurricanes. She has an extraordinary understanding of storm damage prevetion methods and restoration strategies that work. High wind and water damage affects all building components in ways most architects and engineers are unaware. Although she is an expert personally, Stacy has unmatched experience in leading extensive teams to identify damage and workable remedies.
