VIRGINIA BEACH, VA — Flatiron is building resiliency protection to help communities brace for impacts of storm surge, sea-level rise, and other environmental threats. Resiliency has become a significant market for Flatiron, with the company recently adding a major project in Virginia to its other projects already underway.

In Virginia Beach, Virginia, the City of Virginia Beach selected Flatiron, along with subconsultant designer Arcadis, for phase one of a progressive design-build resiliency project. Initially valued at $225 million to $275 million, the initiative seeks to improve stormwater management, protect the fresh water supply, and relieve widespread flooding in the neighborhoods of Windsor Woods, Princess Anne Plaza, and The Lakes.

Implementation of the comprehensive flood protection infrastructure program developed by the City of Virginia Beach will protect city assets and meet the needs of the community for generations to come. Especially significant project elements include water storage and drainage improvements through the use of large pump stations, tide gates to minimize tidal impacts and flooding, and flood barriers along with upgrades to the drainage channel.

The progressive design-build delivery method is ideal for such a complex project. The project team — in collaboration with the City of Virginia Beach and other stakeholders — will work to mitigate project risks and develop a design and construction schedule that is cost effective.
