Logistical Challenges

This project was a huge logistical challenge, because it was an emergency roofing repair job after Hurricane Ida. After the disaster, acquiring materials was hard because they were scarce. Many of our workers were affected by the hurricane, which effectively dwindled our manpower. Once the materials were acquired and workers were available, we faced the challenge of delivering materials to the courthouse because of the large amount debris blocking the roads leading to the worksite. Electrical issues, running water, and cellular service all proved to be challenges that we had to overcome as well.
