U.S. Virgin Islands Emergency Housing Repairs Program (EHRVI)
EXCEL is responsible for construction services on St. Croix for the EHRVI program in response to Hurricanes Maria and Irma. EXCEL has performed work in the Virgin Islands for 20 years, and we consider the region an extension of our Gulf Coast home.
There are extraordinary challenges within this program, including shipping and logistical hurdles, vehicle shortages, material availability, constraints in local labor, and political pressures. These challenges push our team to be creative, agile, responsive and resolute every day. We work closely with our client and program stakeholders to align our work plan with the program’s evolving requirements.
Our approach has been to plan and schedule work orders, crews and materials in coordination with resource availability. Our work plan prioritizes safety, quality and homeowner satisfaction to the highest degree. We balance these priorities and challenges to most effectively and efficiently address the pace and production of the program.
