Emergency Related Engineering Capabilities:
One of the distinguishing features of the Ardurra difference is the blending of Ardurra’s disaster recovery experts with our deep and talented bench of engineering professionals. The Ardurra engineering practice routinely furnishes post emergency engineering assessments, design, and construction phase services to augment repair strategies and provide input to restore and strengthen water, wastewater and drainage facilities, streets and bridges, levees and flood control structures, and shorelines. Ardurra’s in-house civil, structural, environmental, mechanical, and hydraulic engineers have extensive experience in modeling, planning, and hazard mitigation design. We understand how and when to use engineering expertise and readily provide a level of support not available with most firms. Whether it is in the damage assessment process, evaluating emergency versus permanent repairs, design, construction, and/or mitigation, Ardurra’s engineering contingent of some 700 engineers elevate what we offer from the routine to the extraordinary.
