Byrdy’s Awards & Accolades

Special Project Achievements – Commercial Management

Bankruptcy attorney in Dallas, TX had a construction site that was incurring a max city fine of $37,500 per day due to storm water violations and complaints from neighboring building owners of water ponding. Byrdy took over and quickly put together a team of service technicians and vendors who successfully began correcting violations. Byrdy worked with Dallas City inspectors and developed a SWPPP binder within 30 days of receiving the initial project.
