Royal Plus, Inc. has been awarded a GSA contract that adds RPI to the list of pre-approved contractors for the Federal Government. When dealing with a disaster, it is crucial to hire professionals that specialize in restoration. If water damaged areas are not restored properly, damaged areas could worsen and mold can develop causing further damage. With RPI, there is no need to worry.
RPI has helped local, state, and federal government customers across the nation with their disaster recovery needs. We understand that government disaster restoration jobs are especially time-sensitive because their damaged facilities may not be able to provide important services to the citizens they serve. RPI is capable of having your facility restored and up to health standards in a short period of time so that operations return to normal.
RPI’s Government Work History:
Government Housing Property
March 7, 2014- After torrential flooding in Florida, 41 Area Housing Units were ALL contaminated by up to 24 inches of Category 3 flood water, which created a time-sensitive situation in need of immediate mitigation. All units were deemed to be uninhabitable and tenants were relocated to offsite facilities.
Royal Plus, Inc. began mobilizing to the site with a mobile central command unit, power generation, and power distribution, mitigation equipment and manpower to perform demolition and mitigation services. RPI also staged several units on site to store the salvageable fixtures that were removed, cleaned, and sanitized in each of the 41 units.
Extremely hot and humid conditions created a challenging environment for our Team. Nevertheless, RPI management, supervisors and support personnel worked closely with mitigation workers to carry out precise demolition. With careful consideration, our Team was able to salvage ALL upper cabinetry, countertops, and fixtures in the units.
RPI mitigation technicians, with recommendations provided by the Industrial Hygienists, were able to clean, sanitize and save the exterior sheathing throughout ALL 41 units allowing the brick veneer of the building to be completely salvaged. The successful outcome was achieved through specialized drying methods and encapsulation.
During the course of drying the structure, many of the 15,000 KW transformers on the property failed due to their age and were replaced by the utility company. Although this presented a great challenge, our Team was still able to dry the units ahead of schedule and on budget. In addition, RPI supervisors and/or managers were on site 24/7 and provided an around-the-clock security presence.
In summary, the project went smoothly and coordination between all parties was exceptional. Deadlines and schedules were met and the units were tested and cleared for any harmful levels of mold, bacteria (including E-coli) and were ready for the next phase of reconstruction.
Kennedy Space Center – Water Damage
February 2012 – Kennedy Space center Life Sciences Lab- Around Noon on February 17, 2012, a six-inch main pipe feeding the fire sprinkler system had cracked in the west stairwell in the three-story, 110,000-square foot facility.
The system, reacting as if a fire required suppression, began pumping water through the pipe at a rate of 1,500 gallons per minute until it pooled ankle-deep on parts of the second floor and trickled down to the ground floor. The insulated HVAC system was heavily impacted and served as a conduit for the water to run through as well as being trapped in. Mold and other hazards were present and the mitigation/remediation of these was dealt with in coordination with the staff Industrial Hygienists. In total, approximately 55,000 gallons of water were released into the facility. 75,000 square feet, or 68 percent of the facility, sustained some degree of damage. It was concentrated in office areas on the second floor and mostly spared laboratories and experiments.
Government Facility – Water Damage
October 2011 Government Facility- Pennsylvania- 450,000 sqf facility containing high-security inventory damaged by flood waters as a result of Hurricane Irene. This project entailed the removal of approximately 300 tractor-trailer loads of inventory requiring destruction under tight security. The facility required extraction and cleaning in order to complete the removal and destruction of the inventory.
