In September of 2008 Hurricane Ike made landfall on Galveston Island ravaging more than one million square feet of building space at UTMB Galveston. Flooding on campus reached up to six feet causing the immediate failure of all campus utility systems. The two existing heating and cooling plants were critically damaged and the underground steam distribution system was a complete loss.AEI worked closely with UTMB to develop a comprehensive four-step solution to ensure that the university would remain resilient during any similar future event. This presentation summarizes the partnership's efforts.
