The SCAPE team was selected as one of the winning teams in the Rebuild by Design competition. The project is currently being implemented by the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery (GOSR) with $60 million in CDBG-DR funding. Planned for the neighborhood of Tottenville, Staten Island, the project links in-water infrastructure with on-shore education and outreach to help increase awareness of risk, enhance ecologies, and bring local school curriculum to the waterfront. SCAPE was commissioned by GOSR to lead the design process with a strong coalition of ecological and engineering partners, iteratively testing and designing scenarios for breakwater height, width and location along the Tottenville shoreline. The team worked closely with members of the community to create a design that benefits the community while positively affecting regional ecosystems and resiliency efforts. The schematic design process incorporates hydrodynamic and wave modeling, ecological data collection, active community feedback, agency coordination and constructability assessment.
