Flooding and drainage

FloodMap: Unique visualization

Our FloodMap software is a unique web application that takes raw data from hydraulic model output files to an interactive, online map that is easily viewable on any platform. These results come to life through interactive visualizations including velocity particle tracing, flood inundation animations by simulation time step, and swipe block for any hydraulic output values for comparison between different frequency storms and design scenarios.

As our world continues to become more crowded and our resources become more limited, it is crucial that we develop a deeper comprehension of how people interact with both the constructed and natural environments surrounding us.

Utilizing state-of-the-art technologies including visualization, spatial intelligence and dynamic scenario modelling, our focus is on minimizing the negative impacts of human development on eco-systems, while enhancing the capability of communities to respond to environmental risks.

Sustainability and ESG

As our world continues to progress, we are beginning to witness an escalation of risks linked to maintaining a level of resilience and sustainability. The regulations that govern these matters are becoming more restrictive, and the scrutiny from investors is only intensifying. With greater awareness, consumers want more from the products and services they use. 

ESG factors are playing a significant role in determining investment strategy, consumer behavior and operational decisions. However, successfully translating ESG insights into tangible actions can prove challenging due to the intricate nature of such factors.

Coastal resilience

The inhabitants of seaside regions often face the daunting prospect of confronting a multitude of natural perils including coastal storms, water inundation, marine debris, and tsunamis. To add to their worries, population growth, overdevelopment, and loss of natural resources compound their woes. Adding fuel to fire is the impact of climate change that only seems to magnify the severity and recurrence of such disasters by raising the sea level and intensifying the magnitude of unprecedented weather anomalies.
