CAT Protocol in Texas – Starts 5/2/2016


Due to the number of those affected by this month’s severe weather events in Texas and surrounding areas, Donan’s three Texas offices, which include Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, and Houston, will be operating under Engineering CAT Protocol as of Monday, May 2. We are leveraging our national resources to bring additional engineers to Texas to increase our capacity and meet the dramatically increased needs of our clients as swiftly and effectively as possible. As a result of the additional CAT deployment, our weekly project capacity for Texas will increase by 30 -50%.

The additional experts we’re providing are Donan employees, not subcontractors or 1099 workers – that means professional engineers who are licensed, qualified and have extensive experience. While deployed resources are in place, engineering projects originating from the Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth/ and Houston offices* will be billed at the CAT rate of $195 per hour, this only applies to civil and structural engineering projects and will not impact mechanical or electrical assignments.

*Donan projects are automatically billed from the enabled office that is closest to the loss location. When that office is operating under Donan CAT Protocol, all Forensic Engineering and Roofing projects will be billed at CAT rates of $195 per hour. Fixed-Price Roofing projects are still available, but note that any additional travel time will be billed at the $195 CAT rate. CAT rates will only be in effect for the length of time that deployed resources are in place to meet increased client demand.
