GULFPORT VA MEDICAL CENTER

GULFPORT, MISSISSIPPI 39504

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

AdvantaClean was contracted by the Department of Veterans Affairs to perform multiple environmental services at the site of the Gulfport VA Medical Center, which was heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina.

  • The work at the facility, currently ongoing, includes the remediation of hazardous materials and demolition of structures affected by severe weather.
  • Thousands of patient records and sensitive documents were scattered over several acres. They are being retrieved and recovered under the contract and stored in secure containers for final disposition by the VA.

Other tasks associated with this project include:

  • Construction management services, site inspections and confirmation of hazardous materials at various buildings, and asbestos abatement.
  • A unique challenge associated with this contract is the extensive damage to most of the 50 buildings comprising the facility, most of which sustained heavy structural damage.
