Stantec-Atkins-Dewberry Team Selected to Support National Flood Mapping and Risk Mitigation for FEMA

DENVER, CO — Stantec, as part of the Strategic Alliance for Risk Reduction II (STARR II) Joint Venture, has been selected by FEMA to provide engineering and technical services for the National Flood Insurance Program under a five-year indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract valued at up to $300 million. STARR II will support the agency’s Risk Mapping, Assessment, and Planning (Risk MAP) program throughout FEMA Regions 8, 9, and 10, which include 12 midwestern and western states, as well as Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands.

Stantec, along with STARR II partners Atkins and Dewberry, have supported FEMA’s Risk MAP program since 2009. Projects under this architecture and engineering contract will include regional flood hazard modeling, floodplain mapping, and flood management services with the mission of increasing risk awareness and inspiring communities to take mitigative actions to reduce the risk to life and property. The goal is to increase community resilience to better withstand, adapt, and recover from future disasters.

“It’s an honor to continue our decades of work with FEMA in its mission to help protect the nation against disasters, especially as there is a rising urgency to better equip our communities against the impacts of climate change,” said Mike Anderson, Vice President and Stantec’s FEMA Program Manager. “In building on our program success with our joint venture partners, we are keenly focused on the unified goal of providing the critical tools and information that will better arm communities in improving resilience and adaption strategies to ultimately help protect lives.”

The Risk MAP program supports communities by providing credible flood data, building partnerships, and informing long-term hazard mitigation planning to build resilience. Risk MAP’s Flood Risk Products provide information that enhance the development of hazard mitigation and risk-based mitigation strategies.
