Resiliency

Empowering Communities to

Withstand and Recover

Resiliency in infrastructure means a structure has the ability to withstand short-term emergencies and adapt to evolving conditions in the long term. Ensuring and strengthening resiliency is a core focus of LAN’s service groups. engineering efforts, underlying the management and design philosophies of each of our service groups. Starting with the project planning process, we provide clients with the best data on current and projected resiliency factors and an understanding of how these factors impact the ultimate project effectiveness. Working collaboratively, we then incorporate appropriate resiliency initiatives into the project. These initiatives are informed by first-hand experience with resiliency-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
  • Resiliency funding application support
  • Green infrastructure and low-impact development
  • Life cycle cost analyses
  • Risk and resilience assessments
  • Emergency preparedness plans
  • Dedicated resiliency group workshops

As our communities increasingly face factors such as population growth, climate change, relative sea level rise, supply chain stress, there is the need for sustainable infrastructure. By implementing measures now and ensuring ongoing, systemic resiliency support, LAN enables communities to better meet both current goals and the challenges on the horizon.

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