San Anselmo - Flood Lifts

Home Lifting for Flood Prevention
After the San Anselmo New Year flood of 2005, Hennessey Construction, Inc. worked in the flats of San Anselmo lifting homes to prevent future flooding. This encompassed working with the necessary government and insurance agencies including including FEMA and dealing with the town of San Anselmo’s to fast track the permit process due to the flood issues. We also handled mold and mildow eradication. Some of the unique design issues in these situations included stairway redesign and reconfiguring entryways.

All four of these homes were lifted 3-5 feet to raise the living area above the flood plain. The scope of work to lift these homes included demo and removal of debris, disconnecting and reconnecting all plumbing and utilites, rebuilding subfloor structures, reworking and building all entries and exits, rough and finsh carpentry and repairing all flood damage. In addition to the lifting, Hennessey Construction, Inc also completed major remodels on two of these homes.
