Resilient Infrastructure Design


The critical infrastructure that we rely on everyday was designed for streamflow, rainfall, temperature, and other climatological conditions that have already changed and are projected to continue to do so through this century. Whether we are designing new infrastructure or retrofitting existing infrastructure, we consider current conditions, applicable regulations and standards, relevant climate change projections for the design life of infrastructure, and tolerance for risk. Developing designs that are adaptable to allow for phasing of costs and adjustments for updated information over the useful life of the asset is key to our approach to infrastructure design. We also consider infrastructure within a context. How does it serve the community in which it’s located? Can it provide co-benefits like recreational access or improved habitat or reduced heat island effects? We look to blend “gray” and “green” elements as appropriate and, wherever feasible, incorporate nature-based solutions that typically have lower upfront capital costs, have lower operational and maintenance costs, and provide greater resilience to climate change than traditional gray infrastructure.
