In the fourth quarter, the Company performed approximately $60 million of emergency repair services in response to Hurricane Sandy. Tutor Perini performed the largest share of work among the general contractors hired for New York City’s Rapid Repairs Program. The goal of the program was to restore heat, power, and hot water to thousands of residential properties damaged by the hurricane, as well as perform repairs to protect residents from further damage and allow them to remain in or return to their homes. The Company’s work on the program is expected to conclude this week. In addition, Tutor Perini’s specialty electrical and mechanical services subsidiaries, Five Star Electric and WDF, restored power, plumbing, and heating to the Rockaway Water Control Plant, which was submerged after the storm, re-energized 35 New York City Department of Environmental Protection pumping stations, and provided emergency repair services to the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) at various NYCHA-managed properties by restoring electricity and/or heat to over 100 buildings.
