DONAN Launches CAT Protocol in Louisiana

In response to the historic and disastrous flooding affecting the state of Louisiana, Donan’s Louisiana office in Baton Rouge will be operating under Engineering CAT Protocol as of Monday, August 22, 2016. The firm’s national resources are being redirected to bring additional engineers into the affected areas in order to up 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 will increase dramatically for Louisiana.

As always, the additional experts we’re providing are Donan employees, not subcontractors or 1099 workers – this means you have access to professional engineers who are licensed, qualified and have extensive experience. While deployed resources are in place, engineering projects originating from the Baton Rouge office* 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 continues to operate in CAT mode in its Texas offices. For more information, please see the original announcement here.

*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.
