Resilience is being able to prosper through adversity. Designing resiliently will not only decrease damage in the occurrence of an extreme event, but also allow for a reduction in downtime after an extreme event. Our staff are available to consult for both new and existing development.

For existing development, our staff can provide cost effective measures to increase the resilience and reduce potential losses during an extreme event. Our Sea Level Rise Ready™ Program is designed to be an individualized adaptation needs assessment and our staff can assist in finding the right resilient measures for you.

Additionally, our team has broad practical experience in the areas of coastal zone and floodplain management, and we leverage our unique expertise to advise and provide cost-effective solutions regarding policy, development, and construction in these highly regulated zones. Our Technical expertise matched with our policy and political experience allows us to navigate the complex floodplain management regulations and arrive at the most practical solutions.
Sea Level Rise Ready™ for New Development

For coastal communities, it seems like there is plenty of talk about sea level rise, yet a small amount of action and generally only taken at a local government level.

Developers, Architects, and Engineers are left wondering,
What should we consider to protect our project, and what are the best ways to do so?

We created the Sea Level Rise Ready™ Program to answer that question, be that resource, and partner with you on your journey to prepare for what’s to come.

Under the Sea Level Rise Ready™ Program for New Development, we provide design standards utilizing our experience thinking about sea level rise on a daily basis. With us as your partner on your adaptation journey, you will have the guidance you need to become Sea Level Rise Ready™. Our staff specializes in distilling complex scientific issues and providing actionable information in a straightforward three-step process: Assess. Communicate. Adapt.
