Helping clients address a defining issue of our time
Do you feel the urgency? We do. Do you also see the need to act? So do we. Each time storm surges batter our coastlines, wildfires engulf critical ecosystems, heat domes overwhelm our citizens, floods sweep away homes and businesses, and droughts cripple decimate food and water supplies. Every day, the need to adapt and mitigate the factors contributing to climate change increases.
As design and consulting professionals, we see firsthand how extreme weather impacts the environment, infrastructure, and the communities where we work and play. We have learned that our greatest influence on improving climate outcomes stems from the creative, innovative climate solutions we provide to our clients and communities.
That is why adapting and mitigating the impacts of climate change is an integral part of our project work. Only by addressing climate change today can we create the resilient and sustainable communities of tomorrow.
Nature-based solutionsA functioning, healthy ecosystem protects the people who live within it. It can improve quality of life and reinvigorate communities. Nature-based solutions can buffer against extreme weather events and also mitigate the impacts of future climate change—a unique design opportunity that is critical to the sustainability and health of our communities.
