Permanent Housing Construction (PHC)

InfoTran Engineers, P.C. just wrapped up Permanent Housing Construction (PHC) in Saipan, Northern Marianas Islands in the Pacific Ocean.
• On October 24, 2018, Super Typhoon Yutu, the strongest typhoon to impact the Commonwealth of Northern Marianas Islands (CNMI) on record caused catastrophic damage to the islands of Saipan and Tinian.
• The scope included the construction of eligible PHC applicants’ 1, 2, and 3-bedroom homes utilizing the architectural and engineering (A&E) drawings developed by USACE for FEMA in accordance with applicable Federal, State, and Local laws, building codes and standards.
• InfoTran was responsible for providing Engineering Oversight and Quality Assurance. The unique challenges encountered included unavailability of materials due to the remoteness of the island and disruption caused by Covid-19.
