Communities around the globe need an efficient way to understand their flood risk, identify cost-effective solutions, and enhance their quality of life. Enter AMPI—the Automated Mitigation Project Identifier—an innovative model that assesses structure-specific flood risk across a range of flood scenarios, then estimates the benefits and costs of elevating or acquiring each structure. Learn more in this video presentation by senior hazard mitigation planner Caroline Cunningham.

This video was taken at Stantec’s Breckenridge Forum—an annual internal conference where leaders of our most innovative projects share their work and celebrate creative thinking. The Breckenridge Forum is part of Stantec’s Creativity & Innovation Program, which supports employee ideas with funding, resources, and guidance.
