Our Work in Action

Hurricane Ike made landfall in September 2008, damaging or destroying a significant portion of homes in Harris County. Partnering with other firms who had CDBG-DR expertise, IBTS worked with the Harris County Community Services Department to assist residents whose homes had been damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Ike. With the goal of improving residents’ quality of life and restoring the region’s economy, the team provided grant management, administration, environmental review, monitoring, and closeout activities for Harris County.

With the incredible damage in the County, we performed damage assessments and work orders for over 1,800 residential homes under two programs. This work included scheduling directly with the homeowner, conducting an on-site damage assessment using a field tablet, performing a repair estimate utilizing the Xactimate® software platform, and delivering a completed work order for contractors to begin construction.
