Teamwork. Resources. Progress.

When a disaster impacts people’s lives or the environment, we assist with stabilization, recovery, and reconstruction. We’ve demonstrated our unique capabilities as a design-builder and our ability to rapidly mobilize resources worldwide, including after the devastating 2004 tsunami in Indonesia and after Haiti’s 2010 earthquake. Our goal is to return a sense of normalcy to devastated regions, and we do so by meeting accelerated schedules, maintaining the highest safety standards, delivering sustainable solutions, and rebuilding a sense of security.

Our commitment to quality on multiple award-winning projects highlights why Parsons is one of the most recognized names in disaster relief and recovery:

  • New Orleans Public Schools Hurricane Katrina Recovery Program, Louisiana, United States
  • Aceh Road/Bridge Reconstruction and Rehabilitation, Indonesia
  • Pentagon 9/11 Renovation Program Management, Washington, D.C., United States
  • Hurricane Sandy Recovery Projects, New York and New Jersey, United States

We support bridge and tunnel owners, state departments of transportation, commercial clients, and local authorities by gathering critical information regarding structural deficiencies and, if needed, rebuilding those structures. Our seismic vulnerability assessments of bridges and tunnels and our use of high-tech, structural health monitoring techniques keep people safe and provide owners real, actionable information about the health and resiliency of their structures like the Brooklyn Bridge and programs like the Federal Highway Administration Corrosion Research, as well as implementing resiliency standards for infrastructure. We are committed to keeping communities connected with the world when it’s needed most and to rebuilding for a better tomorrow.
