7 Personnel and Expertise Mission StatementThe Loupe group is dedicated to delivering superior products and services to the emergency management community. Driven by the appropriate and accurate implementation of technology, regulatory interpretation, and creativity, we shall provide practical and cost effective solutions to the full spectrum of our clientele. We will do whatever is necessary to not only meet but to exceed expectations and deliver success to all parties.Health & Safety Safe work performance is a primary concern of Loupe Construction. Accordingly, all employees are directed to observe the requirements of the safety and health standards which have been laid out by the Department of Labor to implement the Occupational Safety and Health Act. Our Health and Safety Program is comprised of an Accident Prevention Program, Substance Abuse Policy and Site-Specific Health and Safety Plans designed to address specific needs of each individual project.Personnel and ExpertisePersonnelLoupe Construction maintains a full-time management staff comprised of professional project managers, US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)-certified quality control managers, logistics managers and finance and accounting managers. Our company officers all possess extensive emergency response experience, and are reinforced by our professional staff of more than 20 individuals. Loupe Construction has reviewed the qualifications of all staff members with respect to the performance requirements and expectations.Expertise in Debris Removal in a Recovery EnvironmentFounded in 1973, Loupe Construction is a licensed general contractor and a government contracting firm specializing in disaster recovery work following hurricanes, and other catastrophes. Loupe Construction also provides specialized services including Heavy Civil demolition, construction, pile driving services, and road boring. Loupe Construction has been awarded and successfully performed bridge work contracts in different states in the Union and the Caribbean.
8 Personnel and Expertise Cont. Our history of successful performance of general contracting projects is a direct result of several critical business operation components, including: our experienced and talented staff, long-standing working relationships with experienced sub-contract firms, inventory of owned equipment, financial strength and resources, and the integrity and standard of quality applied throughout our business operations. Our mission is to completely satisfy our clients while maintaining the highest standards of ethics, safety and performance. We take great pride and satisfaction in consistently providing exemplary services that are on time and within established budgets.As detailed in other sections of this proposal, Loupe Construction has extensive experience in civil, bridge work and responding to disaster recovery missions, performing demolition both in disaster and non-emergency situations, and completing other services related to the recovery of impacted areas from natural disasters. In just the Hurricane season of 2005, Loupe Construction concurrently managed disaster recovery missions for Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in a Joint Venture with Ceres Environmental Services. The Hurricane Katrina mission resulted in the removal of over 14 million cubic yards of storm debris, management of 24 Temporary Debris Storage and Reduction Sites, demolition of over 1,000 storm-damaged structures, and the removal or trimming of over 160,000 storm damaged trees, some of which necessitated the use of cranes.The nature of the demolition work for this particular contract, because of the extensive nature of damage caused by the Hurricanes and subsequent flooding, necessitated the development of specialized procedures to minimize the safety of crew members and the public and minimize potential adverse impacts to our environment. Loupe Construction developed a demolition plan specific to the removal of these structures and which addressed the elevated hazard presented by the instability of the structures and likely presence of hazardous substances such as lead, asbestos, and mold. To ensure the safety and quality of demolition operations, Loupe Construction assigns Safety Officers and QC Officers with the responsibility of monitoring crew (both Loupe Construction and subcontracted) activities, preparing daily reports, and implementing immediate corrective measures if any non-conformances are identified. The low incident rates maintained by Loupe Construction and high level of customer satisfaction are, in some measure, attributed to the planning and monitoring aspects we employed to this project, which is also employed to all contracts performed by this company.
9 Capacity and Capabilities Resources, Response Capabilities, ExecutionThe capabilities, responsiveness and successful contract management of this company are due to several critical business components including: experienced and talented managers and technical personnel, financial strength and resources, established business associations with subcontract firm’s nation-wide, extensive inventory of owned equipment, and sound business and management practices.Upon arrival A suitable locations will be determined to deploy first response resources and support the Incident Command System. Our expertise in the areas of ordering, inventory management, and deploying of assets into the field using state of the art position tracking systems in conjunction with emergency management and USCG specifications.Upon determining the area of operations, it shall be divided into several divisions. Each division will then be broken into sections, which will focus on areas of impact, so that specific task forces can address any obstacles encountered,.PersonnelOur company officers have extensive emergency response experience, and are supported by a professional staff of more than 20 individuals who hold degrees in business administration, civil engineering, forestry, geology, the sciences and accounting.Loupe Construction employs licensed engineers, architects, ISA-certified arborists, and other specialists who are professionally trained and fully capable of completing any size project. These employees possess extensive experience in engineering, construction, and disaster recovery management. Some of the qualifications held by our engineers include, but are not limited to: Undergraduate and advanced degrees in Civil and Electrical Engineering, Certified general contractor and roofing contractor; Maintenance of Traffic (MOT) certifications; OSHA 10-Hour and 30-hour Construction Industry safety courses; and USACE Construction Quality Control for Contractor certifications.SubcontractorsLoupe Construction maintains a database of 356 screened and qualified subcontractors, including local vendors and preferred vendors. Loupe Construction subcontractors have been evaluated on many levels, including past performance, equipment and personnel availability, mobilization timeframes, insurance and cost. We always strive to employ qualified local labor to boost the economy in the areas in which we work.Finances and AccountingLoupe Construction can provide performance and payment bonds in amounts in excess of $150 million per project. With additional working capital and additional credit lines available, a lack of financial resources is never an obstacle for Loupe Construction.
10 Capacity and Capabilities Capable and ExperiencedLoupe Construction has performed disaster recovery work on three USACE Contracts as a Joint Venture with Ceres Environmental Services, Loupe Construction has never had a regulatory or license agency sanction imposed on our company, and has never defaulted on a project or failed to complete a project. Loupe Construction has performed numerous civil, Heavy, Marine, Highway, and Commercial Projects throughout the United States.None of our clients has ever been denied FEMA reimbursement for Loupe Construction projects.Reliable and ResponsiveOur clients rely on Loupe Construction to rapidly mobilize personnel and equipment, and we respond strongly as shown by our past performance. Following Hurricane Katrina, on just the first day of operations in Jefferson Parish (Louisiana), Loupe Construction hauled over 80,000 cubic yards of storm debris. Our clients rely on Loupe Construction and we respond with superb service levels.From our offices in Garyville, New Orleans, and Convent Louisiana we can have Disaster Recovery Team representation onsite in a matter of hours. Loupe Construction expects our local subcontractors to have equipment onsite in less than 12 hours. Our clients trust Loupe Construction to perform and our people honor the company’s commitment.Respected and SafeLoupe Construction is proud of our leadership in business ethics, as we earn high marks from our clients in this regard. Our clients’ respect is upheld by our management; Loupe Construction has never been debarred from any type of contracting, including federal contracting.In addition to an admirable reputation in recycling and debris management, Loupe Construction also strives for a strong record in job safety. Loupe Construction conducts thorough training, constant inspections of field operations and proper equipment use to minimize the risk of injury to our workers and citizens in the field of operations. All of our full-time field employees and more than half of our management staff hold current certifications in CPR/First Aid and AED use, and several have completed OSHA’s 10 or 30-hour course in Construction Safety and the OSHA 40-hour Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response course.
11 Capacity and Capabilities Equipment Loupe Construction owns more than 60 pieces of equipment and over 2500 additional pieces of construction equipment with access to additional equipment through our extensive subcontractor relationships and agreements with rental companies. The large, Loupe Construction -owned fleet offers flexibility, direct control, high levels of responsiveness and accountability. Additionally, we own all the life-support equipment needed for supporting our personnel, and have pre-existing accounts with life-support equipment suppliers if additional units or services are needed for project-wide and government personnel.
12 Past Performance Quality of Service, Timeliness of Performance and Business RelationsLoupe Construction has a senior management team that is second to none in its experience and expertise in General Contracting, debris collection, reduction and disposal operations.Loupe Construction Senior Management team consists of the following individuals:Founder/President: Alvin Paul LoupeGovernment Contracting Director: Rick HerndonCorporate Secretary Angie MartinCorporate Health & Safety Officer: JP LoupeLoupe Construction Standard Operating Procedures and Personnel Manuals provide the foundation upon which we build all of our projects, including disaster debris removal and reduction projects. In addition, while there is a formal written method to conduct our emergency response activities, Loupe Construction is privately owned and operated by its President, allowing for extreme responsiveness to rapidly changing situations.Loupe Construction has a team of divisions and department managers who have trained their personnel such that the manager is able to leave on short notice, travel to a disaster area, and provide immediate managerial skills to a project response while their normal responsibilities and duties “at home” continue through their support staff. We are very familiar with the need and ability to expand our non-disaster weekly revenue base to one that is eight or more times greater in order to ensure rapid response in the field to recovery activities.
13 Past PerformanceDeployment: Preparation is Constant Loupe Construction personnel understand that a significant portion of our revenue comes from Federal/State Contracts. Therefore, just as a military installation maintains guard at all times in the event of an unforeseen attack, Loupe Construction maintains contacts and relationships in advance of a possible disaster event. Our Finance Department maintains existing accounts and works with our general contracting and disaster business unit to establish new accounts in preparation of immediate supply purchasing needs. Our managers maintain telephone contact and correspondence with subcontractors to continue to maintain relationships even through times when there is no immediate work. The result of this effort is the availability of personnel and equipment on very short notice. Our maintenance team works steadily year round to ensure our equipment is in top operating condition. Our talented crew also constructs custom-made equipment and components to improve the efficiency and capabilities of our work. Other staff personnel ensure documentation, plans, and essential supplies are inventoried and maintained and readily available for mobilization to the field offices as needed. Teamwork Teamwork is an essential part to our operations, including teamwork with our own personnel, our sub-contractors, and our contract owners. Loupe Construction strives to establish solid working relationships at all levels, and collaborate with the many entities involved in a project from the Corps “red shirts” to government leaders, local representatives and homeowners. Availability of Subcontractors Loupe Construction plans and staffs any given project depending upon expected production levels. For this proposal, following issuance of a task order, Loupe Construction will seek to maintain an excess of personnel above the quantity required for the work in order to be prepared for unforeseen circumstances and avoid the risk of having an insufficient quantity of workforce and equipment. Loupe Construction will not allow itself to be lacking in capacity for whatever quantity of throughout the Corps and or private companies generates.
14 Past PerformanceOur extensive experience and commitment to long-standing working relationships has placed us in a position to be well-prepared for this contract. We have managed multiple contracts and multiple crews, and have never defaulted on a contract or failed to perform our work. Although Loupe Construction has a large contingent of subcontractors, the specific firms selected for any given task order will be dependent upon the geographic location of the response and similar project needs. In addition to our list of established subcontract firms, Loupe Construction strives to utilize, to the maximum extent possible, local small, disadvantaged and woman-owned businesses. Our subcontractor plan further explains of utilization goals for small and disadvantaged businesses. In addition to this effort, Loupe Construction also seeks to utilize local labor and other resources to help restore economic balance to the affected communities. Team Management Prior to deployment of our subcontractors, personnel and equipment, Loupe Construction appoints specific, qualified personnel to fulfill critical management roles throughout the duration of the project. The Project Manager will be appointed by the President of the firm who will in turn appoint Zone or Operations Managers. The Project Manager will also serve Liaison to the client and have authority, in writing, to commit Loupe Construction to various phases of work. The PM will be available a minimum of 10 hours per day, and be available 24 hours per day, seven days per week, on an on-call basis. The PM will be provided with electronic linkage capabilities for transmitting and receiving relevant contractual information and for making other necessary arrangements for project and site activities. The PM will participate in daily reviews and meetings as needed in order to provide essential contractor information. The Project Manager will work with Area Operations Managers to identify the boundaries of the entire work area and then divide this area in Zones. Zone boundaries will be determined with consideration given to client priorities, geographic location and conditions, and estimated work loadings. Each zone is further divided into quadrants and specific crews assigned responsibility to specific quadrants. Each crew has an appointed foreman who reports to a Superintendent. The Field Superintendent, who may supervise up to 10 men, reports to the Area Operations Manager who, in turn, reports to the Project Manager. The Field Superintendent is responsible for ensuring crews complete the assigned work properly and on time. The Area Operations Manager will inspect each quadrant for satisfactory completion and, if approved, authorize the crew to move to a new work area. Work progresses through each quadrant systematically until the entire Zone is completed. This work is planned and coordinated between the Area Operations Managers and Project Manager. For debris missions, a first pass through the entire project area (all Zones) must be completed by a specific date, thereby ensuring consistent production and attention to each area throughout the assigned project area. Upon completion of the first pass, the second pass will commence in a similar manner and, finally, the third pass through the affected area until all work is satisfactorily completed.
15 Past PerformanceOther Management team members will include a manager for each of the following functions and support personnel as specific tasks and duties require: Health, Safety and Environmental Compliance Quality Control Contract Administration Human Resources Subcontractor Administration Materials Management (government-supplied and Loupe Construction -purchased) Data Management Damage Repair and Public Relations Additional support staff personnel are retained as needed through existing teaming agreements established by Loupe Construction in order to provide prompt assistance to our managers; these may include data entry clerks, clerical staff, accounting staff, and other technical support. Effectiveness Throughout our many years of operation, our experienced management staff has clearly demonstrated its ability to: • Respond to large scale events— In response to Hurricane Katrina, Loupe Construction operated 24 TDSR sites across southern Louisiana; hauled and disposed of over 14 million cubic yards of debris and 8000 units of white goods; trimmed or removed 164,683 hazardous trees from rights-of-way, and demolished over 1000 storm-damaged structures. • Respond to multiple events— During the 2005 Hurricane season, Loupe Construction operated emergency response sites in Louisiana, while maintaining its schedule on non-disaster related construction.
16 Past Performance• Demolish buildings damaged by disaster and other causes — Loupe Construction decommissioned and demolished over 1000 structures in Louisiana damaged by Hurricane Katrina. • Safely remove and dispose of hazardous materials from storm-damaged communities — Loupe Construction has removed hazardous materials from debris and damaged structures located in twelve (12) Louisiana parishes impacted by Hurricane Katrina. • Safely removed thousands hazardous trees or hanging limbs damaged by severe storms— Following Hurricane Katrina, Loupe Construction completed right-of-entry tree removal actions throughout twelve (12) southern Louisiana Parishes, totaling over 1,000 private properties. Loupe Construction has performed removal of dead and dying trees on this same contract, as well as removal of thousands of dangerous leaning trees and hanging limbs on multiple disaster recovery contracts. • Performed normal general contracting projects. Timely Performance One responsibility of the Project Manager, Area Operations Managers, and other personnel critical to the project team is to predict the time necessary for to complete each phase of work based on projected workloads and crew resources. Project schedules are developed based upon client needs and initial work projections. Once the work is in progress the Area Operations Managers and Field Supervisors will provide the daily reports and other necessary information to the Project Manager on a regular basis; the Project Manager analyzes the data and related information to monitor adherence to the estimated performance schedule. This regular reporting and analysis system allows for Area Operations Managers and the Project Managers to quickly identify possible phases of work that are not meeting the anticipated schedule and make the necessary adjustments in order to correct the deviation and ensure the work is completed on time.
