Atkins wins Hurricane Sandy clean-up contract

Consultant Atkins has won a Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) contract to help support clean-up and rebuilding efforts in the north eastern United States following Hurricane Sandy.

Fema has contracted Disaster Solutions Alliance (DSA) - a joint venture between consultants URS and Atkins - to help provide temporary housing for people affected by the storm.

“With our extensive experience supporting Fema following other natural disasters, I’m confident that our qualified team will help bring back some normalcy to the people and businesses in the affected region,” said Atkins emergency management director Steve Glenn.

The work will be done under DSA’s Fema individual assistance - technical assistance contract. Under this contract Fema aims to ensure individuals and families impacted by disasters have access to its full range of recovery programmes.

DSA’s services include designing and constructing sites for temporary housing groups, as well as transporting and installing temporary housing units.
