Says Richard Starzak, one of ICF’s historic preservationists, “WayPoint increased the efficiency, accuracy, and consistency among our staff. And it cut the time it takes to fill out environmental checklists from 4 hours to less than a minute.”
Building a new practice
ICF captured a second Business Achievement Award in the Information Technology category for building a practice around WayPoint. Our extended team now includes more than 10 developers, and ICF anticipates expanding the WayPoint team another 50% to meet our clients’ growing needs in disaster management, biological modeling, energy infrastructure planning and modeling, cultural resources, species habitat modeling, and transportation planning.
Our third Business Achievement Award, in the Industry Leadership category, is again for our resilience work—though from a different angle. The award recognized a white paper (and final report) we helped develop for the Federal Highway Administration.
The recently published Nature-Based Solutions for Coastal Highway Resilience: An Implementation Guide provides step-by-step guidance on how transportation agencies can use nature-based solutions to develop more sustainable and resilient coastal transportation infrastructure.
