Our Approach

Disaster Recovery Services

With talented staff, many of them ex-veterans, the Canstruct Group has the capability to deploy Recovery Teams (cooperatively and independently) to natural disasters at short notice.

Our approach is underpinned by the broader components of prevention, preparedness, response and recovery. Planning for recovery is integral to emergency preparation and mitigation actions are often initiated as part of the process. Additionally, physical, environmental and economic elements together with psychosocial wellbeing are all part of Canstruct’s considerations.
