Boston Coastal Flood Resilience Guidelines win USGBC Resilience Award!

Utile is thrilled to receive the USGBC Massachusetts Chapter’s 2019 Market Leader in Resilience Award for Boston’s Coastal Flood Resilience Design Guidelines, developed in collaboration with the City of Boston, BPDA, Kleinfelder, and Noble Wickersham & Hart, LLP! The award recognizes projects that advance sustainable and regenerative design, construction, and operation of the built environment in the Commonwealth.

According to the jury, the Guidelines are “hands down the most helpful and broadly-applicable resource on adapting coastal communities and buildings to flooding.” The Guidelines are designed to work with several initiatives as part of Climate Ready Boston, including neighborhood plans, public right-of-way guidance, and updated zoning.
