Disaster Recovery

Jackson County Public Infrastructure Projects

Broaddus & Associates was selected to provide Project Management services to assist in the rebuilding of public infrastructure in Jackson County, Mississippi, which sustained significant damage during Hurricanes Katrina and Gustav. This includes managing funding from multiple sources including insurance, FEMA Public Assistance and FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program under Section 404.

The Broaddus & Associates team has not only managed approximately 15 projects, but has also been a good steward of Jackson County’s resources. The firm combined projects into more cost-effective expenditures, and utilized less expensive items that were more efficient yet yielded the same high-quality results. Broaddus & Associates has become a leader in disaster recovery by managing not only the design and construction process, but also the review, documentation and approval process of these projects that have become the standard by which all HMGP applications are now based upon.

Project list includes:

  • Ocean Springs Harbor House
  • Ocean Springs Fishing Bridge Demolition and Construction
  • Old Spanish Fort, Bulkhead and Museum
  • Department of Corrections
  • Jackson County Courthouse Mechanical Building
  • Singing River Industries Building
  • Jefferson Street Complex
  • Agriculture, 4-H and MSU Extension Office
  • Lake Mars Pier
  • Swingster, Heinz and Hatten Buildings

The most significant projects are the Jackson County Health Department and the Fountainbleau Community Center and Shelter. The Health Department is a new 17,000 SF facility that will also serve as a shelter for local residents, and an Emergency Response Center for First Responders. The Community Center and Shelter is a new 5,400 SF facility that will serve the public as a community center, a “shelter of last resort” for up to 300 local residents and an Emergency Response Center prior to, during and after natural disasters.
