Manhattan Coastal Protection Deal for Arcadis

Arcadis today announced its selection as Engineer of Record for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) flood protection multiphase design of New York City’s East Side Coastal Resiliency (ESCR) Project in the borough of Manhattan.

Arcadis is part of a team supporting New York City’s efforts to safeguard the Lower East Side against severe weather events and continued sea level rise.

The ESCR Project, led by the Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency, is an urban flood protection solution spanning 2.5 miles of Lower Manhattan, including the East Side, and is the first element of coastal storm and sea leave rise defense system for the East Side and Lower Manhattan.

“New York City is particularly vulnerable to the effects of sea level rise as proven by Hurricane Sandy’s economic impacts on the city’s dense population and business centers as well as underground infrastructure,” said Peter Glus, Arcadis City Executive for New York City.

“Our team brings a wealth of expertise in climate change adaptability and resilience from our Dutch heritage and from our experienced engineers who designed flood protection systems across the Louisiana coast following Hurricane Katrina.”

Following completion of ESCR’s conceptual design and preliminary design phases, Arcadis was selected as part of a multi-disciplined engineering team contracted by the New York City Department of Design and Construction during final design phase of the project.
