Case Studies Introduction

Who We Have Helped

Please take some time to read our short list of case studies. This is but a small cross section of industries and institutions Garrett McKenzie has provided assistance to in there time of need and will give you an idea of the professionalism which Garrett McKenzie possesses. We are extremely proud of the people we have helped in dire situations. Regardless if it is a home owner, business, town or city, you can count on the team at Garrett McKenzie to treat each and every situation as the most important situation. We are your one-stop shop when the unthinkable becomes a reality.   



At Garrett McKenzie, we understand natural and man-made disasters. Whether it is Mother Nature or a human error, or a combination of the two, Garrett McKenzie is here to help you through the entire process from beginning to end to ensure you get back on your feet as soon as possible. The process begins with a thorough understanding of the issue and all of the associated risks and factors which are involved. The assessment process is a crucial step in formulating a comprehensive and clear directive to move forward toward a resolution. Our team has the knowledge and experience to quickly and confidently determine, not only the main issue, but all of the subsequent underlying effects associated with your situation. As you can well imagine, there are a number of factors which must be addressed and resolved in any disaster.


Plan of Action

The next step is to develop a plan of action. Without a clear directive, precious time may be lost to inadequate planning, confusion, or a misstep in execution. Having a solid plan of action is imperative so every person on the team knows exactly what they are to do, how to do it, when, and in what order. You can see how this is a powerful tool to help mitigate or eliminate confusion. There will undoubtedly be unforeseen circumstances which will arise as the plan is executed, but they can be quickly assessed and course corrections can be made to allow the process to continue to move forward without making a mistake during the execution of the plan. All too often we see people who are so eager and ready to do anything, without thinking, or knowing, about the consequences of their actions, actually cause more and occasionally larger issues. Please go to the case study under Hotel-Restaurant and see the third case study titled “Restaurant” for an example of how poor planning, mismanagement, haste, and lack of experience caused larger problems which would not have happened if Garrett McKenzie were called from the onset of the issue.


At many points during a crisis, you will need to be working with many people. There will be people from the insurance companies, and depending upon the severity of the situation, local, state and even Federal officials. Garrett McKenzie is there to stand with you as a helpful guide as you navigate the labyrinth of red tape, hoops, and paperwork which you will be required to maneuver through. When we say we are with you through the process we mean it! Many times the lawyers will get involved and you will not need to have Garrett McKenzie on your side, but isn’t it a nice feeling knowing, in those first crucial hours, there is a company standing with you, to assist and help you, when it seems so many others are standing in your way?
