Areas of Expertise

resiliency planning

At LTA, we develop cohesive, sustainable solutions for islands and at-risk communities combatting rising tides and increasing storm intensity. Our solutions are developed through a holistic approach that considers the needs of the community, the natural environment, emerging and time-tested technology and long-term maintenance of the system.

green stormwater solutions

We provide stormwater solutions that decrease standing water and result in more usable open space than other systems. Our solutions are resilient and result in long-term improvements to water quality. LTA can design the stormwater system that works for a single property or an entire community. We specialize in green infrastructure designs and strive for low impact development including infiltration, bioswales, tree wells and cisterns. Our staff has years of experience with retrofitting stormwater systems and can design the right system to solve your stormwater problems. 

Sea Level Rise

LTA Engineers designs comprehensive solutions for communities experiencing the impacts of sea level rise and severe storm events caused by climate change. Our team has extensive experience with gray and green infrastructure options and can provide the best combination of solutions for each condition. We are familiar with Florida’s requirement for a Sea Level Impact Projection Study (SLIP Study) for all state funded projects.
