Our Services

Resiliency & Sustainability

For over a century, we have guided municipalities, institutions, and real estate developers as they look to create resilient projects and sustainable communities across the Northeast. Our talented experts have extensive experience in both natural and engineered coastal and inland environments. Our approach uniquely qualifies us to find creative solutions which manage the adverse effects of severe storms and climate change, while improving long-term resiliency.

Climate Change Design Strategies

Design is only as good as its effectiveness in addressing our changing environment. We work to develop meaningful and sustainable solutions for resiliency, whether it’s leading the Northeast in the planning and assessment of hurricane barriers or implementing living shorelines to prevent erosion and adapt to rising sea levels.

Our resiliency services involve the ability to plan, prepare for, mitigate, and adapt to the changing environmental conditions.

Our sustainable design and development services consider the long-term social, economic, and environmental aspects of the project, as well as creating equitable, inclusive, and adaptive solutions that protect both our built and natural environments.

Through ecological restoration we promote the natural recovery of deteriorated, damaged, or destroyed ecosystems.
