Company Helps Builders Save Millions of Dollars

Flood Risk America (FRA) provides in-depth, professional, FEMA compliant, flood mitigation pre-development consulting services to construction companies and real estate developers. "We have the tools and expertise to anticipate the potential future Base Flood Elevations (BFE)," said Stephen Gill, CEO. With architectural and engineering experience in flood prevention, FRA works with clients to evaluate the data and prepare recommendations to current design specifications. These services provide a FEMA compliant structure, which helps maintain the lowest flood insurance premiums available.

Flood Risk America’s comprehensive flood risk assessment reports delineate the anticipated risk of current and future flooding from tidal water, storm surges, heavy rainfall, and groundwater inundation. Assessments include an in-depth customized view of the entire site, and also the property’s vulnerability to climate change and global warming. This flood-mapping data will be useful to construction companies for future building on proposed locations.

Not only do they assess the entire construction site, but they also provide their clients with detailed maps of the entire site, including an all-weather peril assessment, recommendations on level of which to build, and specific flood mitigation solutions based upon the detailed assessment. Lastly, Flood Risk America navigates their clients through local and national flood plain requirements.
