Recovery & Resiliency
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy and other previous storms that have ravished the NY Metro Area, The State of New York established numerous programs to provide additional rebuilding and revitalization assistance to homeowners and communities that were severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy, Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. McKissack was tasked by the Dormitory Authority of The State of New York to organize, manage and coordinate the necessary personnel required to perform inspection and assessment services in connection with Recreate New York Smart Home Program. The NYS Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery (GOSR) also selected McKissack to provide Construction Management Support Services for resiliency projects statewide.
McKissack will also have an oversight role of the companies working with the Metropolitan Transit Authority in their Hurricane Sandy recovery related projects and is also teamed to repair some of the Sandy related damage of the WTC Transportation HUB.
