During the 2012 Atlantic Ocean hurricane season, Hurricane Sandy caused more than $70 billion in damage all along the Eastern seaboard. Housing recovery programs were created by the State of Connecticut to meet the housing needs of those in the communities that were most impacted by this superstorm along the coast of Long Island Sound.
TDEG was retained by Merritt Construction Services to help with the rehabilitation and reconstruction of single and multi-family homes damaged by the storm. Homes needed to be replaced, reconstructed, and raised to increase the resilience against future storms. In all, TDEG assisted with the reconstruction of over 15 homes.
