GEI Continues Expansion in Coastal Planning

GEI Consultants, Inc., a company involved in geotechnical, environmental, water resources, and ecological science and engineering, has expanded staff and client services with the hiring of three employees in the coastal practice.

Sam Merrill, Ph.D., Jonathan Lockman, AICP, and Alexander Gray have joined the firm from Catalysis Adaptation Partners, a consulting firm founded by Dr. Merrill in 2012.

The team has deep experience in science, finance, policy, and planning for sea level rise, coastal hazards, inland flooding, and extreme weather events.

This collaboration will provide an array of climate and coastal hazard adaptation-related services to GEI’s clients, including vulnerability assessments, inundation mapping and visualization, economic impact evaluation, adaptation strategy development and implementation, benefit-cost analysis of candidate adaptation actions, planning process analysis, policy revision assistance, and consensus building support.

All three employees are based on the east coast and they will be working on water management projects across the US.
