Project Overview

ATM is currently working with a team of site designers, planners, architects, and engineers on the redevelopment of a historic downtown waterfront site in Charleston, SC. In addition to planning, design, and permitting comprehensive shoreline treatments, waterfront access, and marina components of the overall redevelopment project, ATM is also providing specialized consulting for FEMA flood zone-related issues. Specifically, ATM is providing insight into alternatives for integrating flood risk reduction structures into planned features, acquiring variances and engineering support for atypical site grading, and revising existing flood maps using updated site plans. These options increase redevelopment program options, simplify project constructability, and offer significant reductions in construction costs and required flood insurance premiums for the property owners.
