SDR recently completed a significant dune restoration project for Brevard County, FL in May 2018. This emergency project produced challenges with sourcing and delivering enough quality sand to meet very aggressive project deadlines. SDR addressed these challenges efficiently and in cooperation with the county. In the end, the project was successfully completed with only minor sand QAQC issues and within a few days of the intended project schedule. Changes requested by the county, in addition to the original scope, were addressed in a fair and cooperative manner by SDR.

The debris removal project as a result of Hurricane Matthew was widespread throughout Beaufort County, NC, however, overall debris quantities were small to medium in size. Your company representative and sub-contractor representative worked smoothly with our self monitoring team and accomplished the debris removal task with professionalism. The monitors and debris removal supervisor have nothing but respect for the team you sent to Beaufort County. We thank you for your get-it-done approach to this Type 2 event. We feel very secure with SDR being our debris removal contractor moving into the future after this outstanding demonstration of coordination and effort. I also want to add that the Beaufort County NCDOT personnel are very pleased with the way SDR removed the debris from their right-of-way throughout all 927 square miles of Beaufort County.

In February 2014, much of the State of South Carolina was covered in a thick layer of ice, bringing down trees and power lines causing major disruption of services to residents. Aiken County was the hardest hit of the 22 counties that received federal disaster declarations, with our total cost of clean-up and recovery exceeding $30 million. Thankfully, due to our efforts to have SDR under contract, we were able to put [them] to work within hours after the storm passed. Your assistance in clearing roads enabled us to open lanes for emergency vehicles and utility trucks to get to citizens if needed. Further, after the initial “push” operation, the major task of collecting and disposing of the more than 1.5 million cubic yards of debris was done in a most efficient and professional manner. The crews and equipment [SDR] brought to bear on this project enabled us to recover from this disaster much faster than we could have ever believed would have been possible. Additionally, [their] familiarity with FEMA procedures and practices enabled us to get answers to cost recovery questions quickly and accurately. [Their] knowledge of FEMA’s approach to such matters made navigating that part of the recovery, while not without its challenges, much easier than it would have been otherwise. SDR made a disastrous situation manageable and [their] work was exemplary.
