Reducing vulnerability, risks and costs through innovative resilience solutions that protect assets and facilitate faster, more efficient recovery. We make sure infrastructure, supply chains, and the environment are better equipped to cope with the vast array of global risks and hazards. Using cost benefit analysis and socio-economic methodologies we deliver practical and innovative solutions that strengthen communities and maxamise the net benefit. We also combine our financial, environmental and management expertise to deliver tailor-made solutions to identify, design and deliver qualifying green bond projects.

Climate analysis

Small investments now can save money in the future. Our experts use state of the art climate models and analysis techniques to provide climate analysis for long-term planning of infrastructure, agriculture, and energy production needs.

Resilient cities

Helping communities withstand, respond and adapt to the short-term shocks and long-term stresses through proactive planning integrating resilience engineering into infrastructure and environmental projects. Through our partnership with the Rockefeller Foundation 100 Resilient Cities initiative, we are working closely with some of the world’s biggest cities, such as New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami, Paris, Greater Manchester, London and Toronto to assist them to become even more resilient.

Strong coastlines

Wetlands provide habitats for niche organisms, act as nesting areas for fish and wildlife, and serve as natural filters. One the biggest benefits of coastal marshes is to dampen the effects of high tides and storms that have become increasingly common in recent years. Healthy tidal marshes are proven to be effective coastline protectors by reducing the impacts of coastal flooding and stabilizing soil erosion. Our teams work with federal, state/provincial and local agencies to restore wetlands, creating resilience in the face of climate change. Our innovative thin layer dispersion technique casts clean sediment from channel dredging in layers over a marsh to allow for a gradual increase in height and new habitat. GPS-guided dredging contributes significantly to the level of precision and reduces the need for design modifications.
