Sea Level Rise Ready™ Building Program for Developers and Designers is geared toward building a more resilient future. Developers, architects and engineers shape our cities and communities, and their decisions during the planning process can have a lasting impact on generations to come. Our program focuses on what happens before, during, and after construction.
For buildings that haven’t yet been erected, we can help to identify any at-risk elements before the earth is turned, preventing costly modifications down the line. During construction, we can devise alternative methods to protect the critical components. As sea level rise becomes a more prevalent, mainstream topic, a Sea Level Rise Ready™ building can differentiate you from your competition and bolster your bottom line. Contact us to learn more about developments in progress and future developments.
For existing buildings under the program, we identify those that are already prepared for the next few decades of sea level rise, and help those that are not figure out how and when to act to become Sea Level Rise Ready™. We do this by using the latest sea level rise projections and historic tide data. With only an elevation certificate, we assess the types of actions you need to take and when to implement them to adapt your building for future tidal flooding.
We use a 30-year forecast to determine readiness. If the elevation of all critical components of a structure are above what we call the 30-year Adaptation Action Elevation, the building qualifies as Sea Level Rise Ready™. If not, we designate it as Sea Level Rise Adaptable™ and provide you with a follow-up consultation to start you on your adaptation journey. See “How to Apply” below to enroll today.
How to Apply
Once you make your purchase, you will receive an email with more information, including how to provide us with a copy of the elevation certificate from the building in which you are trying to enroll in the program.

*Processing time for buildings located in Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach Counties, Florida, is 5-busines days plus shipping time for your welcome packet, from receipt of elevation certificate. Outside of the four counties, turn around time is 10-business days as we need a little extra time to continue to grow our geographic reach. Thank you for your understanding.
