For the day after.
And all days after that.

Recovery is a process: cleaning, rebuilding, understanding, explaining. CTEH is with you building resilience in every step so you can make the new normal better than before.

Get Operations Back on Track

The CTEH Resilience and Recovery team knows that every hour of downtime is a risk to your company, employees, and community. Our recovery planning and implementation services help ensure operations resume safely and efficiently, minimizing downtime and disruption.

  • Employee and Property Stabilization

    In the wake of a natural or man-made disaster, both homes and businesses are affected—creating difficulties for employees and delays in getting back up and running. CTEH can provide direct housing support to employees following a disaster, freeing them from worry over where their families will sleep, and allowing them to return to work as quickly as possible.

    An effective program starts with extensive planning ahead of time, so that policies are in place and contractors at the ready when the need arises. If it does, CTEH immediately begins documenting the damage and issuing work orders to get the houses safe, sanitary, and secure. We can manage the entire process so your key staff can focus on getting the business operational.

  • Staff Augmentation and Implementation

    It takes a large, well-coordinated team to handle all of the tasks associated with a properly executed recovery effort. CTEH has a vast network of trained, experienced professionals who are able to reinforce your internal teams, so you can focus on day-to-day activities secure in the knowledge that recovery will proceed smoothly. Our experts are ready to hit the ground running, eliminating lengthy learning curves that can slow the entire operation. 

    This can be particularly important for those projects that are highly technical in nature, such as public health projects, which often have time-limited funding and high costs for staff and execution. We can help take the pressure off your staff by leveraging our deep bench of multi-disciplined health scientists, industrial hygienists, epidemiologists, project managers, and other environmental and public health experts and support staff.

  • Program and Project Management

    CTEH has wide-ranging experience developing and implementing IT solutions that can give your team greater visibility into programs, improve workflows and processes, and enable rapid, data-based decision-making even in difficult circumstances. When combined with our high performing management personnel with a wide breadth of experience managing processes and personnel during natural disasters and emergencies, CTEH can deliver in even the most complex scenarios.

    We also have funding-specific policy subject matter expertise related to Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) Broadband, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Community Development Blog Grants (GDBG) CDBG-DR/CDBG-MIT, American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), and Department of Transportation (DOT) funding. Our expertise includes everything from technical assistance, training, mitigation planning, and risk assessment to documentation management, procurement, construction management, data analytics, and reporting services. 

Assess and Mitigate Long-term Impacts

The aftershocks of a major event can be felt for years after the dust settles and water retreats. CTEH will help manage and monitor potential human health risks to your employees and adjacent communities for as long as there is actual or implied need.

  • Public Health Studies

    Epidemiology is the cornerstone of public health. CTEH brings extensive scientific and on-the-ground experience to collecting and analyzing data on determinants of health or potential impacts to a sensitive population, including public health claims related to a specific industrial source. 

    We can assess the health and sociodemographics of populations, critically review literature, design detailed studies, and conduct both qualitative and quantitative epidemiological research to produce strong, accurate, and relevant results.

  • Expert Services

    CTEH has decades of experience providing support to counsel, as well as strategic consulting services to clients in a variety of industries. Our experts can decipher complex documents, build compelling exhibits, and explain complicated scientific concepts to all involved parties.

  • Building Sciences Support

    CTEH’s building health support services are designed to handle disaster situations with speed and precision. Our scalable response force can manage projects of any size, from individual warehouse fires to widespread flooding.

    Beyond emergency responses, our building sciences team also manages building health and assessment projects for a wide variety of commercial, hospitality, medical, and office properties. We can provide initial assessment or validate scopes of work from your preferred rebuild or remodel firms.

    We streamline communication pathways to reduce transaction friction, allowing you to focus on restoration work. Our data-backed emergency response expertise ensures that your projects are completed faster, with prompt payments and undeniable documentation of your exceptional work.

    Building health may be affected by age and time as much as by any particular catastrophic event. CTEH industrial hygiene experts have directly transferable skills in managing the common but extensive hazards of asbestos, lead, mold, and other environmental challenges in all building types. We can provide the initial inspection and sampling support as well as have samples analyzed within our network of trusted laboratories with exceptional turnaround times.

    With licenses in many states, our consultants, CIHs, and CSPs can generate protocols for cleaning, clearance, and re-entry as part of a holistic demolition and rehabilitation plan.

    The decision whether to attempt drying or remove materials after water impact is not always straightforward. Many factors of varying complexity affect the decision:

    • How much time elapsed between the water impact event and the response team arriving onsite due to road, airport and bridge closures?
    • How long has the structure been without climate control and under what conditions?
    • What is the wood moisture equivalent (%WME) range in found moisture impact and assumed microbial growth (AMG) indicated on our moisture maps?

    In many water impact recovery situations, gathering and interpreting the answers to these questions and more requires expert consultation. CTEH’s recovery experts provide that consultation with credentialed and experienced backgrounds in the fields of industrial hygiene, microbiology and mycology. Determining the potential for microbial proliferation is crucial for the healthy recovery of the impacted structure and the future health of its occupants. Our team will quickly evaluate the situation and consult based on solid science and field experience. As a result, you, your client, the resident and the primary stakeholder can proceed with confidence that the correct scope and recovery process is underway.

    CTEH excels in moisture mapping and dry process monitoring, utilizing top-of-the-line equipment to accurately assess and document moisture impacts. Our technicians collect and interpret field data, enabling swift and confident deployment of mitigation strategies. We track the restorative drying process, recording daily dehumidifier counts and moisture content measurements to ensure the effectiveness of drying strategies. This allows for immediate troubleshooting of any issues, optimizing the drying process and minimizing client disruptions.

Build Back Better

Backed by decades of real-world experience, CTEH’s resiliency experts are often brought in to consult on the rebuild process, helping industry and communities create stronger infrastructure and implement policies to help mitigate the extent of disruption from any future event, and bounce back more quickly and more confidently in the future.

  • State, Federal, and Local Support

    Disaster recovery can span multiple government layers, each with its own set of agencies and regulations. At CTEH, we believe that bureaucratic processes should not impede a full and timely recovery – we can help you navigate all shades of red tape. With our extensive experience and a track record of success, we excel at evaluating situations and deciphering complex regulatory frameworks, including challenges like 2CFR. We advise clients on the most efficient strategies for collaborating with federal entities such as the USEPA, Department of Treasury, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and the Department of Justice, as well as state and local authorities. Our expert guidance ensures that you can efficiently navigate the regulatory maze, expediting your recovery and building back better.

  • Resiliency Project and Program Development

    With extreme weather on the rise, industries and municipalities face increased risks from increasingly common hazard phenomena, like hurricanes and floods, and longer-term climate-related issues.

    Resiliency projects focus on planning, infrastructure, and recovery mechanisms to strengthen the flexibility and survivability of companies, communities, and programs. Strong resiliency work helps you bounce back faster and return to normal sooner following the next problem event.

    Designing these projects and tackling these challenges requires innovative solutions, nimbleness, and crisis-tested experience. CTEH’s Resiliency and Recovery team, including epidemiologists and exposure health experts, can help you prepare for, respond to, and recover from climate-related incidents and their impact. We’ll help you design and pitch programs to maximize the likelihood of federal funding and stay by your side to continue hitting milestones during execution.

High-Impact Technology

We know that meticulous data collection and management is critical to effective recovery solutions. Whether in the immediate wake of disaster or later on in the rebuilding phase, we work to make sure you have the right information at the right time to make impactful decisions.

  • Complex Project Management Software

    Disaster recovery is a complicated process severely compounded by uncertainty, time pressures, and concerns about the health of people and the environment.

    Managing federally-funded recovery and resiliency projects can be a headache for groups and communities used to managing much smaller projects with smaller funding streams.

    That’s why CTEH built a unique process management solution to help you manage it all – no matter how large or small the project.

    Carbon is our customizable, user-friendly answer to the question of how to manage these complex, multifaceted projects, built by our own software engineers with a wealth of experience developing mission-critical, scalable, and intuitive digital solutions. It simplifies handling of all the details – from work flows to documentation, eliminating one of the biggest stumbling blocks in many recovery efforts.

  • Contents & Resource Tracking

    CTEH’s automated tracking solutions can bring clarity into the chaos of response and recovery operations, enabling you to efficiently track personnel, contents, heavy machinery, equipment, costs, and much more. Whether it’s a large recovery effort with hundreds of contractors and resources or a multi-family complex where residential contents need to be packed out, inventoried, tracked, stored and distributed back to owners, we handle every step of these important but mundane workflows so you can focus on more pressing tasks during recovery.

    With a fully integrated system that includes a web application, mobile technology, badge printers, and barcode scanners, we can track thousands of resources rapidly—eliminating time-consuming manual paper and spreadsheet processes.

    Trust but verify! Resource tracking extends from your own personal logistics into those of your partners and contractors as well. Validating labor time, on-site equipment, and use case for both in the moment can save massive repayments during final audits for the government.
