Communities, organizations and businesses increasingly endeavor to develop sustainable environments through green infrastructure systems. Our team focuses on the triple bottom line — social, environmental and cost — benefits of green infrastructure initiatives through planning, design, construction and monitoring the achieved performance levels. 

Sustainable solutions bring long-term economic benefit for utilities while supporting environmental and community enhancements that benefit neighborhoods. As cities and towns tackle the challenges of infrastructure that is at the end of its design life, new opportunities for smart infrastructure planning are available. By seeing rainwater as a resource rather than waste, communities can implement reuse solutions that support a park rather than piping and pavement. 

We incorporate the tools of the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure’s Envision infrastructure rating system to achieve the best value for each project, whether it involves new construction or urban redevelopment. Our more than 245 certified Envision Sustainability Professionals (ENV SPs) evaluate ways to manage sustainable impacts at every scale, from the small stormwater event to a major flood control situation. We help you consider every factor up front, from initial costs to short- and long-term maintenance requirements.

Our holistic approach can be implemented to solve regulatory challenges as well as enable redevelopment of older infrastructure. We work with you to achieve the desired sustainable impacts and bring your community together.
