Adaptation Design and Implementation

Fuss & O’Neill leverages the latest science, technology, and engineering techniques to design and implement resilient solutions that protect infrastructure, assets, and communities. We evaluate exposure to climate risks and develop tailored adaptation plans that involve designing and implementing solutions to protect infrastructure from sea-level rise, flooding, extreme heat, and other climate impacts. These solutions provide long-term value for our clients’ investments by making them more resilient to existing and future climate change impacts.

As a multidisciplinary firm, we take a holistic approach to adaptation design and implementation, considering current conditions, applicable regulations and standards, relevant climate change projections for design life, and tolerance for risk. Always respecting our clients’ budgets, we develop designs that allow for phasing of costs and adjustments for updated information over the useful life of the project.

We help our clients identify funding for their projects through our knowledge of grants and government-sponsored financing, and we guide our clients in identifying and capitalizing on the economic and community co-benefits of sustainability and climate action. We ensure that our designs are practical, constructable, and do not cause undue maintenance burdens.
