Abstract

Because sea levels are continuing to rise, The Boston Harbor Association has been working on adapting Boston's buildings to worsened flood events. In order to help The Boston Harbor Association achieve their goal, we investigated various sea level rise adaptation techniques that could be used in new construction and major renovations for commercial buildings in Boston. To complete our goal, we used interviews and literary research to gain a wealth of knowledge about different sea level rise adaptation techniques.
