We work to unify the cities and communities, to provide policy makers with the tools needed to make the most informed decisions, and to help private citizens overcome the challenges they will face on their journeys to a better, more resilient tomorrow.
Brizaga offers vulnerability assessments and strategic adaptation planning guides to our clients, designed to examine the impacts of sea level rise on the transportation and infrastructure systems, tax revenues, and population of the study area.
Brizaga provides development and justification of design standards for the consideration of sea level rise, storm surge, ground water depth (for drainage and storage), and heavy rainfall. In addition, we take into account potential long-term changes in weather patterns including heat, rainfall, and other climate factors.
Adaptation, if necessary, is the ultimate goal of our vulnerability assessment. Just understanding vulnerabilities and risks without a path for action is an incomplete foundation of resilience.
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.
Our public engagement programs are designed to help local governments reach their communities and highlight the benefits that individuals and businesses can experience through the implementation of projects and policies aimed at resilience.
