As an emergency response to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina for Task Force Guardian, Meyer Engineers, Ltd. managed $200 million of construction and fast track engineering repair and reconstruction projects. Task Force Guardian was to restore protection by June 1, 2006, nine months after Hurricane Katrina. Meyer immediately mobilized a team of 22 quality assurance inspectors, three project engineers and three construction managers to manage and oversee construction, ensuring that the projects met schedule and stayed within budget. Meyer managed the reconstruction of concrete I-walls and T-walls, as well as the installation of floodgates and drainage pump stations at the 17th Street Canal, London Avenue and Orleans Avenue Canals. Other work included repairs of floodgates at the St. Bernard Creedmore floodgate, the new Harvey Canal Sector Gate Complex, and levee repairs from Belle Chasse to Venice.

As construction managers, Meyer performed daily monitoring of construction activities, cost estimating, data gathering, assuring adherence to safety requirements, daily reporting, on-site quality assurance inspections, attending and facilitating meetings, and providing reports to USACE.


The $5 million construction management contract was completed by Meyer to the satisfaction of the New Orleans district.

This project demonstrates Meyers’ expertise in program management support services, construction management and cost estimating for civil and structural engineering projects for the USACE New Orleans District and Parish agencies.
