When Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas on August 25, 2017, it kicked off an unprecedented destructive 2017 storm season for the Caribbean and the southern U.S., causing $125 billion in damage.
Four weeks after the catastrophic storm-ravaged Southeastern Texas, Compass 82 was on the ground to assess the damage and offer guidance and support.
Local advocates and legislative offices invited us to share our expertise in the recovery and restoration processes through several Hurricane Harvey community outreach events and a series of educational workshops for both survivors and construction professionals.
Below is a list of meetings, conferences, and workshops that Compass 82 conducted or participated in to jumpstart and support Texas’ recovery:
