Resilience

Empowering Communities to

Withstand and Recover

Resilience in infrastructure refers to the ability of infrastructure to withstand short-term emergencies and adapt to evolving conditions in the long term. LAN’s engineering efforts, across service groups, are rooted in this philosophy. Starting with the project planning process, we provide clients with current and projected resilience data to inform how these factors impact ultimate project effectiveness. Working collaboratively, we then incorporate appropriate resilience initiatives into the project. These initiatives are informed by first-hand experience with resilience-centered projects including:

  • Facility assessments and repairs
  • Stand-by and redundant infrastructure engineering
  • Hazard mitigation plans
  • Disaster recovery and emergency response
  • Advanced H&H modeling
  • Capital improvement plan development
  • Resilience funding application support
  • Green infrastructure and low-impact development
  • Life cycle cost analyses
  • Risk and resilience assessments
  • Emergency preparedness plans
  • Dedicated resilience group workshops

As municipalities deal with population growth, climate change, rising sea levels, and supply chain stress, having sustainable infrastructure is necessary. At LAN, we are implementing resilience measures now and enabling communities to meet current and future challenges.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act dedicates $47 billion in resilience-related funding.

LAN is managing $500 million of channel and conveyance improvements for Harris County Flood Control District.
