PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tetra Tech, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEK), a leading provider of high-end consulting and engineering services, announced today that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded the Company, as part of the Advancing Resilience in Communities (ARC) joint venture, an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract with a ceiling of $300 million for up to five years.
Under the contract the ARC joint venture will provide technical support services to assess and manage flood risks in the northeastern United States. Tetra Tech’s engineers and GIS specialists will use advanced analytics and predictive modeling to assess risks from flooding, including coastal storm surges. Our team will develop detailed hazard maps and visualization dashboards to communicate these risks to vulnerable communities to strengthen their resilience against storm impacts.
In addition to Tetra Tech, the ARC joint venture includes team members from Michael Baker International, Wood, Moffatt & Nichol, Freese and Nichols, and NV5 Geospatial.
“Increased impacts from climate change have placed communities at greater risk from more frequent and extreme flood events,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO. “Tetra Tech looks forward to continuing to use our Leading with Science® approach to support FEMA in reducing flood risks and building community resilience.”
