Flooding is the primary natural hazard in the United States, causing millions of dollars in damage to buildings and infrastructure each year and putting countless lives at risk. Higher global temperatures increase atmospheric moisture, giving rise to increases in heavy precipitation. With a focus on risk mitigation, vulnerability reduction and increasing resiliency, Bergmann’s experts are always keeping up to date with new tools for assessing sea level change in coastal systems, as well as non-stationarity and climate hydrology in riverine systems.
Bergmann offers a suite of services designed specifically to assist clients in determining asset vulnerabilities and identifying opportunities for improved flooding resilience. As a full-service, multi-disciplinary firm, with expertise in all areas of architecture, engineering and planning, and with ASFPM® Certified Floodplain Managers on staff, our Planning and Water Resources team members collaborate in response to flood hazard events with adaptation strategies that reduce vulnerabilities and deliver to our clients a shared vision of a resilient future.
