Arcadis Wins Ohio Creek Contract

Arcadis, a design and consultancy firm for natural and built assets, has been awarded an approximate $11.6 million contract by the City of Norfolk, Virginia, to protect Ohio Creek communities against future flooding and continued sea level rise.

The city received a $115 million grant to transform the Ohio Creek Watershed. The grant follows a winning application to the Department of Housing and Urban Development for funding through its $1 billion National Disaster Resilience Competition.

The city selected Arcadis not only because it’s staffed with experts who understand the unique nature of our flooding challenges and bring innovative and sustainable ideas to the table, but because they believe in what we are trying to accomplish — a resilient coastal community for the future,” said Scott Smith, Coastal Resiliency Manager for the City of Norfolk.

The City of Norfolk is leading the charge to define innovative resiliency and adaptation by reinventing themselves as the model coastal city of the future,” said Arcadis Water President John McCarthy. “By applying our leading-edge techniques for water management, landscape architecture, flood protection and urban design, Arcadis is playing a key role in making this aspiration a reality.

The Arcadis-led design phase of the project will run through December 2018 with construction activities scheduled to begin in March 2019.
