MRI was retained to assist with the damage evaluation assessment and engineering analysis required for the insurance claim following Hurricane Ike of this 230,000 plus square foot commercial entertainment facility.  MRI clearly illustrated that the damage present was caused by the hurricane by analyzing wind and rain data, developing a damage map from floor to floor, and evaluating engineering and specialist reports.  Realistic and actual repairs costs were developed for the assistance during the appraisal process, which included all hurricane damage and additional deterioration resulting from the lack of mitigation process directed by the insurance company.  A final report was issued, which was submitted and used during the successful appraisal.
