ProSource Project Named an IRWA Top 10 International Infrastructure Project of 2014

October 16, 2014

We are pleased to announce that the International Right of Way Association (IRWA) has recognized the Oakwood Beach (NY) Buyout Program as a Top Project of 2014.  In a highly competitive year, this project placed 5th out of the top ten infrastructure projects in the world.

After Superstorm Sandy battered New York in late 2012, New York State sought a company with a solid record of achievement in developing procedures and carrying out programs to provide funding and assistance to hard-hit communities.  In early 2013, ProSource Technologies was engaged on an emergency basis to provide program administration, case management, title searches/reviews, appraisal, verification of eligibility of benefits, acquisition, relocation, environmental reviews, asbestos surveys, property management and demolition management to Oakwood Beach, Staten Island and other parts of New York State.

ProSource, working in cooperation with New York State officials, received 28,846 applications and made available $375 million to property owners through programs under the New York Rising umbrella by the time the contract ended in August 2014, far outpacing the results for any other disaster recovery program in the history of our country.  This was achieved with ProSource receiving a cumulative 4.99 out of 5 customer satisfaction rating from the property owners it served under the Buyout/Acquisition Programs—remarkable under any circumstances, but particularly so given the complexity of the tasks at hand and the understandable emotional intensity involved in helping property owners recover from a natural disaster.

Experience with large-scale recovery efforts around the country has given ProSource the knowledge and capability to help other communities manage their critical, finite resources when disaster strikes—this proved to be a tremendous asset for expeditiously providing assistance to New York in the wake of Sandy.   ProSource Technologies is grateful for IRWA’s recognition and proud to have assisted New York State and its residents in recovering from the worst storm it has endured in recent history.

Later this year, look for the November/December issue of Right of Way Magazine for more about the 2014 IRWA honorees.
