Biltmore Prepares for an Active Hurricane Season

With the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicting this year’s hurricane season to be extremely active, we are working on ensuring we can rapidly secure our active construction sites during a hurricane event. NOAA is forecasting one of the most active hurricane season in its 22-year history, with between 19-25 named storms. We know from our years of local experience that a hurricane can move and grow in a moment’s notice and we prepare with the assumption any major storm could be a direct hit. We’re also experts at rapidly mobilizing staff directly after a hurricane to provide emergency repairs. For example, after Hurricane Irma hit we quickly mobilized to perform emergency roof repairs for  dozens of correctional facilities across 10 sites simultaneously.
