First in the Nation Web-Based Beta Tool
Weston & Sampson is proud to have served as the lead technical consultant for the Resilient MA Action Team (RMAT) in developing the Statewide Climate Resilience Design Standards Tool, which was recently released by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs. This first-in-the-nation web-based beta tool makes preliminary climate resilience analyses broadly available to the public at no charge to inform “climate smart” capital planning and design. Using the best available climate change projections, local municipalities, state agencies, and private entities will be able to receive preliminary exposure and risk rating for projects and recommendations for integrating climate resilience into designing buildings, infrastructure assets, and natural resources. Local cities and towns can generate and download a report from the beta Tool to include in state-funded grant applications and requests for proposals. For more information about how the Climate Resilience Design Standards Tool can support your planning and design projects, please contact email@example.com, Julie Eaton Ernst, PE, or Indrani Ghosh, PhD at 1-800-SAMPSON.
