LEVEL facilitates workshops and goal setting exercises for local communities to formulate a coherent vision of future infrastructure.
LEVEL designs drainage networks for managing storm water quantity and quality that increase green space, biodiversity, and air quality in urban environments.
LEVEL estimates solid waste generation profiles, designs material recovery facilities, and proposes solid waste management practices that help clients meet recycling or waste diversion goals. We analyze the entire cycle of urban waste creation to leverage technology used to recover energy from waste sources.
We develop an appropriate approach for project design, procurement, implementation and operation based on client goals and capacity to absorb risk. We help our clients understand the intricacies of Public-Private Partnerships and, depending on a project's specific needs, select the relationship that best harnesses benefits from both sectors.
We work closely with clients to create plans that safely support local character at the desired level of service. We analyze ridership demands, identify appropriate sources of capital investment, and assess operational costs and revenues to find the lowest impact transit technology.
We calculate sanitary flows and design wastewater networks that allow for reuse of valuable waste resources.
LEVEL designs infrastructure that utilizes smart communications networks to connect and transmit usage data, playing a critical role in maintaining performance and functionality.
LEVEL calculates drinking water demand, proposes water use reduction policies and strategies, designs water distribution networks, and helps clients understand their complete water resource profiles. LEVEL designs water networks that meet local water quality standards, reliability requirements, and economic constraints.
We develop energy plans to help clients achieve sustainability goals and establish realistic carbon emissions reduction targets within climatic, financial, and regulatory constraints. We model project life-cycle costs to determine a project's maximum value, optimizing operational savings against capital and maintenance costs.
LEVEL integrates financial models into our design and technical assessment processes. We work with public and private actors to help clients secure project financing, considering individual risk and revenue profiles, the scale of capital required, and the potential profit and tax benefits.
