Climate Change

Recent extreme weather events have demonstrated that our climate is changing.  At Associated, we believe we have a responsibility to consider climate change in our projects. Our experience includes designing sustainable buildings and other infrastructure, conducting climate change vulnerability assessments, and planning and designing infrastructure to adapt to our changing climate.  Our goal is to continue our tradition of providing sound advice based on proven methods, while remaining leaders in understanding the  climate change process and the associated risks to infrastructure and the environment, communicating climate change risks to clients, and incorporating climate change knowledge into our work in consistent and meaningful ways.
