Climate Resilience Planning & Design

SLR is a leader in climate adaptation and resilience planning and design, spanning geographies and across sectors. Our work helps governments and companies understand, plan for and address climate-related challenges resulting from sea level rise and intense precipitation, drought, and extreme heat. Our holistic approach to climate resilience strives to be inclusive and multi-disciplinary in order to develop place-based strategies to protect people, infrastructure and the environment, and create better outcomes into the future.

Overview

Climate resilience planning and design typically span many disciplines. We offer full integration of our speciality practises in community planning, hazard assessment and modelling, water resource engineering, 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.
