San Francisco — Arcadis announced its selection as part of a team to participate in Resilient by Design’s Bay Area Challenge in San Francisco. Arcadis will join a team of engineers, architects, designers and other local and international experts to address sea level rise and storm flooding in San Francisco’s Bay Area over the next year. The team, called Public Sediment, is a multidisciplinary design team that views sediment as a core building block of resilience in San Francisco Bay.

The team is one of 10 design teams selected through an extensive jury process out of 51 submissions. The challenge is a collaborative research and design project that brings together residents, public officials and local, national and international experts to develop innovative solutions to the issues brought on by climate change.

The result will be 10 new implementable projects that offer an imaginative and collaborative approach to resilience.

The team is led by SCAPE Landscape Architecture and includes Dredge Research Collaborative, TS Studio, the UC Davis Department of Human Ecology and Design, the UC Davis Center for Watershed Sciences, and Buoyant Ecologies Lab.
