SLR is a leader in resilience and adaptation planning and design, spanning coastal and inland communities. Our work helps communities plan for climate-related challenges such as sea level rise and intense precipitation; and develop strategies to protect infrastructure and public safety. 

How can we help?

Resiliency planning and design typically span many disciplines. We offer full integration of our specialty practices in water resource engineering, community planning, landscape architecture, water and wastewater engineering, civil/structural engineering, transportation engineering, and construction administration, to bring projects from the planning level through design and construction.

SLR provides sector-specific assessments and designs to meet your resiliency needs including:

  • Flood hazard mitigation planning 
  • Flood mitigation feasibility studies
  • Hazard mitigation plans 
  • Shoreline management and protection strategies including living shorelines
