Resiliency for a Changing World

We’re all thinking differently about the future.

Our clients must manage an ever-increasing range of risks, from unexpected natural disasters to pressures caused by aging and deficient infrastructure. While we can’t predict what the future holds, we can be better prepared to withstand and recover from challenging conditions and thrive in the face of changing dynamics.

At Gannett Fleming, we are committed to the overall reliability of societal infrastructure through:

  • Advancing science and engineering of extreme event and weather impacts.
  • Contributing and progressing the study of vulnerabilities and risks in an evolving environment.
  • Guiding clients to prepare for, mitigate, respond and recover from crisis.

Corporate Commitment to Resiliency

Essential to Gannett Fleming’s mission is to become our client’s trusted advisor. And being a trusted advisor means we are here for our clients at all times—particularly when emergencies strike.

In 2019, we formed our Resilience Committee. Our diverse team includes leaders from throughout our multidisciplinary firm who are at the ready to support our clients with the tools, services, and specialized expertise necessary to prepare and recover from a disaster.

“As a company of leaders, we stand ready to work with our clients, business partners, and industry organizations to develop unique, impactful solutions to prepare for today’s pressing challenges and build a more resilient, sustainable, and thriving world for tomorrow.”

Bob Scaer, CEO

  • We help our clients mitigate future incidents by providing engineering solutions to ensure the reliability and viability of the client’s infrastructure for the future. It involves designing to improve operational performance while considering the impacts of increasingly severe events caused by extreme weather, fire, waning resources, and other changing dynamics.

Our approach to resiliency goes hand-in-hand with sustainability. By protecting, improving, and strengthening systems and infrastructure, we can address emerging risks with forethought and efficiency and improve a facility, system, or organization’s ability to rebound and recover from a crisis.

Simultaneously, we incorporate sustainability into all of our projects, considering social, environmental, and economic impacts. Working together, both concepts share common end goals of operating in greater harmony with today’s pressing challenges and contributing to a more thriving world for all.
