Moss Point encompasses 25 square miles and has a population in excess of 15,000 citizens. A historic river front city on the Escatawpa River, Moss Point suffered extensive damage by Hurricane Katrina's storm surge, which was 20 feet high in some areas.
The City of Moss Point was devastated by the damages from Hurricane Katrina. Many of their municipal and utility facilities were either leveled and damaged beyond economical repair, or required significant repairs to restore them back to their pre-Katrina condition for use.
Broaddus & Associates was hired by the City of Moss Point in April of 2008; exactly two years and eight months after Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast. During that time, the city was unable to complete any of their seventeen large FEMA projects. Because communication is the cornerstone of our project management process and success, a collaborative communication process involving the city, the designers and contractors has enabled us to complete over 65% of the FEMA Projects in the last two years. The firm is providing the city with tremendous value by re-defining scopes of work that were missed in the initial evaluations after the storm, and through on-site presence of managing the day-to-day challenges that these unique projects present.
