Health, Safety and Welfare
Share climate adaptation toolkits developed by landscape architects and engineers to address climate change in a diversity of waterfront settings in major urban areas.; Attendees will learn about specific regulatory and agency requirements that drive design decisions, how these requirements will affect future similar projects, and how designers can stay one step ahead.; Attendees will learn construction details, methods, and conventions that can be applied to similar projects to better integrate flood-risk reduction infrastructure into waterfront parks, plazas, esplanade, and streetscapes.; We will share with the audience techniques used to integrate community and stakeholder goals and requirements into flood-risk reduction projects, both during the engagement process and ultimately in design solutions.; Attendees will understand planting criteria and performance requirements around FEMA certified flood-infrastructure, and how maintenance and access concerns can be mitigated.
