ESCR Project: CH2M to Design Coastal Resiliency Solutions

The New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC) has selected CH2M as part of a team to deliver preliminary and final design services for the East Side Coastal Resiliency (ESCR) project in the borough of Manhattan.

A mitigation outcome of Hurricane Sandy, ESCR is an integrated coastal protection system that will reduce the risk of flooding and facilitate access to the waterfront, creating improved public spaces and enhanced natural areas.

Stretching from Montgomery Street to East 25th Street in Lower Manhattan, the project will strengthen the urban floodplain against floods and rising sea levels, while providing social and environmental benefits to the community.

CH2M was part of the team that performed the feasibility study and concept design for the development of a preferred alternative that proposed coastal protection interventions based on changing land typologies and enhanced access to the waterfront.

Working again under the environmental, planning and engineering consultant AKRF, CH2M will continue with the civil engineering and structural design of hard passive resiliency elements, such as flood walls, terraced levees and berms, as well as integrated deployable gates.

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
