Disaster Recovery

CSC was the project lead and the structural engineer on this disaster recovery project. An EF4 Tornado hit the 200,000 ft2 school in early 2012. While practically all parts of the building were damaged to differing degrees, ~40% was leveled to slab on grade. In order to have the school functional for Fall 2012, full design was completed in 12 weeks, with design, construction, and occupancy in 5 months.
