What do we talk about when we talk about resilience?
Extreme weather events like Katrina, Irene, Sandy, and the Alberta floods—plus droughts, economic downturns, infrastructure decay, aging populations, hackers, earthquakes, terrorism, and more—draw our attention to a growing movement in architecture and engineering: resilience. So what do we talk about when we talk about resilience? We believe resilience is the capacity of people, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems to endure, adapt, and thrive regardless of chronic stresses and acute shocks that occur. Stantec’s work—professional consulting in disaster response and recovery, resilience assessment, mitigation, and design—unites infrastructure, environmental, and quality of life improvements to advance community resilience across the globe. We deploy emerging approaches such as the planning and assessment tool Envision to help our communities evaluate, measure, and track progress towards resiliency.
Resilience is about making our communities stronger, now and in the future, for everyone. Here’s how we can help:
- Plan for the future
- Respond and recover
- Rebuild smarter and better
- Protect and mitigate risk
- Adapt to a changing world
- Envision the future
We're better together
