Advantage Engineers is providing geotechnical engineering services for the Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation, and Mitigation (RREM) program. This program, consisting of $600 million in federal funds with expected future allocations to exceed that sum, is aimed at restoring the New Jersey Shore following the devastation of Superstorm Sandy that occurred in October of 2012.
The RREM program will provide the financial assistance needed for homeowners do the necessary work on their home to make it livable and to comply with requirements for structures located in flood plains. The program also helps Homeowners with the construction process by developing repair specifications, providing qualified builders to do the construction work, and ensuring the quality of the work completed.
Advantage is conducting geotechnical investigations at house locations, including laboratory analysis of soils and engineering analysis. Information is supplied to the builders regarding foundation design parameters and whether or not the homes can be supported on shallow foundations or deep foundations based on the soil conditions encountered and the flood zone.

He continues, “The next generation will be able to have the same memories that so many of us have at the shore.”
To date, Advantage Engineers has provided over 60 of these investigations and expects to provide up to 300 in 2014.
