The current seawall needs to be redesigned.

Seawall fortification
The aim of the San Francisco Seawall Resiliency Project is to fortify 3.5 miles of a century-old sea wall protecting the city's most treasured waterfront from Fisherman's Wharf to Mission Creek.

‘The major drivers for making significant improvements to the seawall include earthquake protection enhancements and flood risks caused by climate change’, said Peter Wijsman, Arcadis' City Executive to San Francisco.

Strong water management position
According to Wijsman Arcadis brings its Dutch heritage of addressing coastal resiliency and its broad experience in civil engineering and coastal protection in urban settings, most recently in New York City and in New Orleans after major hurricanes.

‘This contract win strengthens Arcadis' water management position on the U.S. west coast’, added Wijsman.
