Our Sea Level Rise Ready™ Building Program was designed to provide individuals and businesses with the information they need to make well-informed decisions in the face of uncertainty.

Under the Sea Level Rise Ready™ Building Program, we identify buildings that are prepared for the next few decades of sea level rise, and help those that are not yet prepared to figure out how and when to act to become Sea Level Rise Ready™.

We provide each applicant with a technical document detailing where and when to adapt, if necessary.

We use the latest sea level rise projections and historic tide data to provide this information. Our assessment informs a participant when and where adaptation actions should be taken to minimize tidal flooding risk in an easy-to-understand way. We coined the terms Adaptation Action Elevation and Adaptation Action Point to simply communicate where and when to take action.

We use a 30-year Adaptation Action Elevation to determine readiness. If the elevation of all critical parts of a building are above the 30-year Adaptation Action Elevation, the building qualifies as Sea Level Rise Ready™. If not, we designate the building as Sea Level Rise Adaptable™. We then provide you with a follow-up consultation, and partner with you on your adaptation journey.
