Recently, Kevin has worked hand in hand with William Carey University managing the unprecedented volume of tornado damage that occurred in January 2017 with over 60 buildings sustaining damage. Kevin has successfully mobilized the team to evaluate, document, and remediate the buildings on the campus in order to quickly and efficiently bring the facilities back online while upholding his duties to ensure the life safety of students, faculty, staff, and workers. Due to Kevin’s delicate management of the process, William Carey University experienced minimal displacement due to the damages caused by the tornado. Under Kevin’s direction and by working diligently with the Owner and its agents work began immediately to remediate where salvageable, or safely demolish and replace buildings which were deemed unsalvageable.
