Mount Sinai West End Temple, NY
The Mount Sinai Preschool facility was flooded by Hurricane Sandy. Original Project Worksheet (PW) was poorly written and did not capture storm damages correctly in regards to Category (permanent versus temporary). Insurance was improperly applied and client did not understand FEMA policies. DMS was to get $500K put back into the PW in first meeting with the client and FEMA simply by getting FEMA to apply the insurance reduction correctly. The facility was mixed use. FEMA’s early calculations only recognized 51% of the facility as eligible. We were able to get the percentage to 77%.
