AIG Building – Hurricane Harvey 2017

AIG, one of the largest insurers in the US, suffered a catastrophic property loss at their Houston corporate campus during Hurricane Harvey in late summer of 2017. 

Northstar Recovery contacted NDT to request expertise and equipment and assist in restoring AIG Plaza to pre-hurricane conditions. 

The Woodson, Riviana, Wortham, and Life buildings within AIG Plaza sustained the greatest damage – floodwater from the nearby Buffalo Bayou entered the buildings’ basements, which housed electrical and mechanical equipment.

Floodwater crested four feet above the first floors, effectively destroying electrical and mechanical infrastructures and compromising many of the buildings’ finishes and structure.
