Climate Change Adaptation & Mitigation

Recent extreme weather events have demonstrated that our climate is changing. At Associated, we have a responsibility to consider climate change on our projects. Our experience includes climate modelling, climate projections, interpreting existing climate models, designing sustainable buildings and other infrastructure, conducting climate change vulnerability assessments, and planning and designing infrastructure to adapt to our changing climate.  

We provide sound advice based on proven methods, while remaining leaders in understanding the climate change process and the associated risks to infrastructure and the environment. We communicate climate change risks to clients, and incorporate climate change knowledge into our work in consistent and meaningful ways.

Infrastructure Canada has recently published Climate Lens, a new set of requirements for large Infrastructure Canada-funded projects. These requirements call for greenhouse gas mitigation and climate change resiliency assessments. Our Climate Change Advisors and Experts can assist clients with completing climate mitigation and resiliency assessments in support of their application for financial support.

    • I have been combining my passion for structural design and sustainability for two decades. I believe in finding the best structural solution that demonstrates beauty and responsibility. My favorite material is wood, but I have worked with a wide range of different materials.
    • I enjoy spending time with my family. I love the outdoors - skiing in the winter and anything near or on the open water in the summer. I'm also constantly tinkering with my house.
