Government Agency Hurricane Responder Camp Construction

Loss Event: Hurricane

Project Overview: After a Category 4 hurricane devastated Southwest Louisiana, Cotton Logistics was tasked with providing temporary facilities and services to support a first responders camp established by a major government agency. Ninety-six hours after contract approval, Cotton Logistics had deployed, installed, and connected the first 306 beds. In just over eleven days, 1,000 more beds were commissioned for occupancy – a process that traditionally takes over 120 days to complete. Despite the tight deadline, the threat of a second hurricane, and a global pandemic, Cotton Logistics safely and successfully provided housing, housekeeping services, and meals for up to 1,000 first responders daily for three months.
