    Chad Jonassen, Elevation Construction Expert

    Chad is known throughout the Moving and Elevating Industry as among the best in the nation at this line of work. Chad has moved and/or elevated thousands of structures in his twenty plus years of experience. He has been involved with large, difficult projects such as the 3000 ton Schubert Theater, 1500 ton Madonna #11 School in New Orleans, and many more. Chad and his father accomplished the very first FEMA contracts ever awarded in the “elevate homes above the flood plain” program by elevating five large slab buildings in Denham Springs, LA in 1995. Elevating slab type buildings was leading-edge in the industry in the 1990’s, where Chad and his father developed much of the trend-setting elevation methodology used today. He assisted southern Louisiana communities after Hurricane Katrina by training lifters and elevating almost a structure per day from late 2006 until early 2012. His work can be seen and read about often in Structural Mover and House and Building Mover.
