Request for Proposals: Climate Adaptive Design Project Development
The New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC), in partnership with the Hudson River Estuary Program, invites proposals to design a project to reduce shoreline or stormwater risk in one or more of the communities of Catskill, Kingston, Piermont, or Hudson, New York. Each of these communities participated in the Climate-Adaptive Design studio (CAD), a program which links Cornell University graduate and undergraduate students in landscape architecture with flood-risk Hudson riverfront communities to explore design alternatives for more climate resilient and connected waterfront areas.
The purpose of this project is for a consultant, with support from the municipality, to review CAD concepts, select appropriate elements, and design an implementable project at specific sites. Eligible projects must reduce flood risks and erosion while enhancing habitat value. This may include options for strategic relocation, resilient waterfront structures and infrastructure, natural and nature-based shoreline design, and stormwater green infrastructure.
$125,000 is available for one project through this RFP. The deadline for applications is April 19, 2019 at noon. To download the RFP and to apply, go to the Contractor Opportunities page on NEIWPCC’s website.
